Dear Beagle Families, 

Here are some updates that we wanted to share at this time:

ELA NWEA Tuesday Next Week: Since students will be off on Monday, please remind them to charge their chromebooks for their final round of NWEA testing on Tuesday next week, which will be the ELA portion.  Our students did an outstanding job on the Spring Math NWEA test this year, and we know that they will continue finish strong on the ELA portion next week. We thank our students and parents for their hard work and efforts in showing Comet PRIDE during this testing session. NWEA results should be posted in Parent Portal under School Net by the 2nd week of June. 

May 29th–Lots Going On:  Two big things are happening on May 29th: 8th graders leave for the Washington DC trip (all DC students must be here between 5-5:20 am, buses depart 5:30 am sharp); 7th graders along with 8th graders not going on the DC trip will be going to the Lugnut's field trip.  If your student did not turn in their permission slip and money for the Lugnuts trip, they will need to stay home for the day as all school staff will be attending either trip.  In addition, those attending the Lugnuts trip will not be allowed to take their phones or backpacks with them to the stadium. We appreciate parent support with these logistics and expectations. 

Dave Out–May 29-June 3rd: I will be attending the Washington DC trip with our 8th grade students this year, and I will not be connected to internet consistently.  If you need immediate assistance during this time, please be sure to contact Kelly Shumway at or Kailah Moore at  Once I return from the trip, I will be able to respond to emails in a timely manner. 

Incoming Freshman Volleyball Players: Please follow the Grand Ledge HS Volleyball Facebook page to receive updates, reminders and summer schedule information.
There is also a parent and player meeting currently planned for the end of the first summer Open Gym on Tuesday, June 4th at 7:30pm in the High School Main Gym. Coach Matt will review info for the summer, including camp and tryout information for the upcoming season.

Families Not Returning GLPS Next Year: If your student will not be returning to GLPS next year, please be sure to reach out to your building’s secretary.  At Beagle, please reach out to Meagan McMillan  If you have already made contact with appropriate secretaries across the district, you are all set.
