Pictures from the Week

Attention 7th Graders

IMPORTANT! All 7th grade science students MUST bring a winter coat and gloves to class on Monday, 4-16! Gloves should be thin enough to be able to handle a kite and string. As talked about in class over the last several days, we will be conducting weather readings from a large kite, and each student will be flying their own kite that they build. STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT PREPARED with winter coat and gloves WILL NOT be going outside with the rest of their class. Be prepared: the projected high temperature for Monday is 37 degrees!

Distracted Driving Presentation

Lear Corporation Presents an Evening Seminar on Distracted Driving: April is National Distracted Driving Awareness month, and the Lear Corporation--in cooperation with Troy Schools--is hosting a presentation about the dangers of distracted driving at Troy High School on Monday, April 16 at 7 pm.

We’ve given our children cars and cell phones, but we need to do more to keep kids safe while using them. Join us for an impactful event with nationally-recognized speaker and advocate Joel Feldman, who lost his own daughter to distracted driving, and will share strategies for keeping your kids safe and focused behind the wheel. This presentation is for teens, parents and people who are worried about teens and distracted driving, which has been described as an ever-worsening epidemic. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit www.enddd.org.

Troy Food Services Hiring

The Troy Schools Food Service Department, which is contracted by the Sodexo Corporation, is gearing up to expand our Food Service Staff by seeking friendly people willing to fill various vacancies that are responsible for providing lunches to the students of the Troy School District. Not to worry if you haven’t had previous experience, as “on the job” training will be provided!

Depending on the school, the hours would primarily be during the middle of the day and would range from 3 to 4 hours a day. And you would be earning some extra money while your students are in school! We are especially seeking elementary cooks, which does have more hours. So, come join our team by calling 248-823-5089, or email Nicole Gervais at ngervais@troy.k12.mi.us, or come into the office at the Service Center, 4420 Livernois, Troy 48098 for an application.

Weekly Schedule for 4/16/18
