A Place for ALL Students

3:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.          
Marquette B – Level 5

Presenter: Mary Anne Ackerman, Superintendent, Frankenmuth School District

In our small school district, we realized there was a clear divide between those that participate in activities and those that do not. Knowing that the research suggests student involvement in some type of club or activity is an indicator of success in school, the staff was invited to think about activities that might encourage a non-traditional student to get involved. Participants in this session will learn about two new opportunities for our students. The F.O.X. Club (Frankenmuth Out of Doors Explorers) teaches students to shoot trap and skeet at the local conservation club. In addition to practicing archery in the Middle School Cafeteria, students also have opportunities to learn about hunting. Special Kids in Action offers opportunities for children with special needs to participate in numerous activities that had been available only for children who were able. Those activities include soccer, softball, dance, bowling, birthday parties, and holiday events. Both clubs are entirely funded through community donations.
