I hope everyone had a chance to attend the Science fair. A lot of hard work and a lot of thought went into the science projects. Students came up with their project idea. They then had a Hypothesis of what they thought would happen. They then predicted what they thought would happen. Students then tested their theory to find out if they were correct or not. Great Job, Great Projects.
Our student of the month for April is Devontae Sparks Burrell or nickname "Tae". His parents are Lisa Burrell and James Sparks. His favorite activities are track and baseball. His goal is to play on the Detroit Tiger baseball team. His favorite subject in school is English Language Arts Writing. His best friends are Andon Ware and Hunter Nichols. His favorite TV show is "Rob's Fantasy Factory". The last book that he read was "Code Orange". If he could do anything in the world he would: Bungee jump off of a big bridge and live. Something that is special about him is, his family and friends.
The Junior High boys and girls track season is almost over. They have their last meet, which is the Conference meet, on Monday May 18th. at Brethren. Go Jr. Panthers. Good Luck.
We think of summer as being a time off for students and teachers. Once again, our Baldwin teaching staff will be busy this summer working on Professional Development. June and August are the busy months with Math, Reading and Writing and Curriculum Mapping workshops during those months. Teachers are attending these workshops to provide teachers with more training and experience to provide curriculum instruction to our students.
As we get close to summer, just a reminder that Panthers Roar "Respectful, Optimistic, Appropriate and Responsible" is not just during the school year, but all year long.

It seems like just yesterday that it was the first day of school starting with our parade through downtown to school. We have had fire drills, tornado drills, and lockdowns. Boy's football, basketball and track. Girl's volleyball, basketball and track. MEAP testing where this year we excelled making AYP (Adequate Yearly Progress). Halloween dance, Christmas dance and spring dance. Our band students received high marks at band competitions. Our choir enjoyed performing with the Ludington Choir. Our students also participated in the Ludington Daily News Spelling bee, and our Science fair. This year has been busy and with only a little over a week to go we can't slow down. We still have much to do.
We are now in our fourth marking period. The following students have worked hard and have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better: Aneysha Boatwright, Kaitlyn Bolles, Joanna Dewitt, Brittney Grant, Joseph Hamilton, Alexandria Hibma-Chalmers, Anthony Horton, Alan Johnson, Deserai Kent, Tyler Shepler, Chance Sherretz-Hayes, Andon Ware, and Elizabeth Wilcox. Congratulations on a job well done.
Congratulations to the thirty eight eighth grade students that will be moving on to ninth grade next year. Thirty six seventh graders will move to eighth grade and forty eight sixth graders will move to seventh.
Students, remember this summer that the Panther ROAR "Respectful, Optimistic, Appropriate, and Responsible" continues all year long.
