BLACK HISTORY CELEBRATIONS
PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT PROVES TO BE A SUCCESS
PSD had a successful 18-month Partnership Agreement check in with the Michigan Department of Education on February 7. We've been recognized for major improvements toward engaging students, parents, community and partners in our turnaround efforts. We've made such strides that Pontiac High School has been removed from the State's list of 25 worst performing schools!
ROGERS STUDENTS EARN ENGINEERING AWARDS
On February 21, Rogers Elementary fourth-grade students celebrated those who won awards for the "What Is An Engineer" program. Engineers and skilled trades representatives were on hand for the event hosted by the Oakland County Links organization. Students worked in teams to design and build a boat that could hold "vibranium" pennies. The boat that could float with the most pennies won was the winner. Students received Kindle e-readers, gift bags and cupcakes.

PHOENIX BOW TO WILDCATS IN OAA BLUE TITLE GAME
The mighty Pontiac Phoenix lost to the Oxford Wildcats (39-76) at the OAA Blue Title game. Still, we thank the city of Pontiac for coming out to support us! This season was pure magic, magnified by the hard work and unceasing will of these players. We thank them for lifting us up, and never letting us down!
TROY COLLEGE AND CAREER SCHOOL VISITS P.E.A.C.E.
Students from Troy College & Career High School created a new Student Leadership organization this year, and they recently formed a partnership with preschool students at the P.E.A.C.E. Academy. In November, TCCHS Student Leaders held a book drive and collected and delivered more than 2,000 books to the preschool. They took the project a step further, and traveled to P.E.A.C.E. to spend time in classrooms, reading their favorite books to students.
