We are excited to offer you a new resource developed in partnership with Ingham ISD. The Family Learning Connection provides a roadmap with resources and tools to help you support your child’s education as they move from grade to grade and subject to subject.
The Family Learning Connection (FLC) answers questions such as “What is expected of my child at this age/grade level?”, “What should I be asking my child’s teacher?” and “How do I help my child at home?” The FLC also explains student outcomes as identified by the state of Michigan to ensure your child’s learning is on track. Please take a few minutes to see what this site has to offer – www.inghamisd.org/flc.
We look forward to partnering with you to help each child in our school. We encourage you to use the Family Learning Connection to search for tips, answer grade specific questions and provide guidance to support student success.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at any time.

High school students currently in grades 9, 10 and 11 are invited to apply to a statewide student exchange program that would take them to Shiga, Japan, our Sister State, for two weeks during the summer of 2015. The program is the Michigan-Shiga High School Student Exchange Program, a program co-sponsored by the Michigan-Shiga Sister State Program and Michigan State University Asian Studies Center. Fifteen high school students from Michigan are selected to participate each year, and paired with Japanese students with similar interests.
The Michigan students will live with host families and attend school with the Shiga exchange students from June 24 – July 10, 2015. Then, beginning
August 28 – September 12, 2015, the Japanese students will come here and spend two weeks with the Michigan families, attending school with their Michigan partners.
Any student who is adventurous, likes to meet new people and is open-minded qualifies for the program. Knowledge of the Japanese language is helpful, but not necessary. There is a mandatory orientation on Saturday, February 28, 2015 to acquaint selected students and parents with Japanese customs and basic language, held on the Michigan State University campus.
Students interested in applying can receive an application and descriptive brochure online at http://www.mishiga.org/programs/highschool. If you have further questions, please call the program coordinator, Kathee McDonald, at 517.388.1308 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
