The City of Grand Ledge is starting a road construction project on Jones Street Friday, September 1, 2017. This will directly impact access to our Holbrook Early Childhood Center. The City has assured us they will post detour signs, but please know, all traffic wanting to access Holbrook should use Kennedy Street (off West Jefferson or Pleasant Street) during the start of this project. The project is scheduled through October 30. We appreciate your patience and understanding while the City works to improve our city streets.
This year Shrek the Musical was entered into The Excellence Awards, which is open to high school musical theatre programs in Barry, Calhoun, Eaton and Ionia counties. The Excellence Awards strive to foster a spirit of collaboration between school theater programs while bringing recognition and validity to the work of students, staff and the communities. Adjudicators attend participating school productions and evaluate several aspects of the performances using a detailed rubric.
