Today, on Volunteer Recognition Day, we want to express our deep gratitude to the backbone of our community: our volunteers. From the classroom to the field, and behind the scenes, your dedication makes our district shine. Whether you're a student, parent, coach, or community member, your contributions help shape the Hemlock experience. Thank you for all you do to support our students, staff, and mission of innovation, collaboration, and education. Together, we are #HemlockStrong. “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” 💙 Elizabeth Andrew #VolunteerRecognitionDay #HemlockHuskies #BetterTogether

We're introducing #FeelGoodFriday with a sweet tale of teamwork and kindness within our Hemlock family. ✨ Mid downpour on Wednesday, a high school student dashed to K.C. Ling for baseball practice, only to lose a cleat along the way. Despite retracing his steps, the cleat was nowhere to be found. But here's where the magic of our community shines. By Thursday morning, a kind soul had found the cleat and delivered it to the Middle School office. What happened next? In a heartwarming display of teamwork, our incredible staff - from custodians to secretaries, even our school nurse and resource advocate - sprang into action. Within a matter of minutes, they ensured the cleat found its way back to the high school office, snugly back in its owner's baseball bag, just in time for the game that day. That's the spirit of #HemlockStrong. ✨ Want to share a feel good story? In an effort to collectively celebrate and share the good stuff happening right under our noses, we want you to tell us something good! Whether it's excellent service from a local business, a simple act of kindness from a neighbor, a sweet moment between friends or a servant-hearted student making a difference...we want to hear about it.

This week's #StaffSpotlight is on the notable Noreen Zastrow, our Dean of Students at Hemlock Middle School for the past 5 years. We want you to get to know Mrs. Zastow a little better, so here are some fun facts you may not know about her: • She loves to make charcuterie boards for gatherings, and enjoys canning. Some of her favorite things to can are asparagus, salsa, jam, candied jalapeños and BBQ sauce. • As a child, her family and extended family called her "Reenie". • Ireland and Scotland are on her travel bucket list. • She wanted to be a veterinarian when she grew up. • If she won the lottery and decided to give up her position at HPSD, she'd work for their family business. • We asked her what our Huskie pack might be surprised to find out about her, and she shared that she's the youngest of 7 seven children, and grew up on a dairy farm in McBain, Michigan. We’re grateful you’re part of the Huskie Pack, Mrs. Zastrow. Thank you for all you do for our incredible students at Hemlock Middle School. #PackLeaders #Huskietastic #BetterTogether #Since1863

It's a bird! it's a plane! No, it's Principal Gensch... duct taped to a wall! The Sail Into Reading read-a-thon has concluded, and our elementary students and their sponsors certainly rocked it out. 📚 Thank you to all the donors who helped raise over $14,000, and in doing so, helped temporarily adhere Principal Gensch to the wall, and a giant congratulations to our students who garnered an impressive 34,147 minutes of reading. Way to #PullTheSled, Huskies. #HemlockHuskies #ReadingMonth #LiteracyHeroes #Huskietastic

It's #TeacherFeatureTuesday and today we're featuring the hospitable Holly Bell, our Resource Room Teacher who offers incredible support to students in grade 9 - 12 here at Hemlock High School. In addition to spending 6 years teaching at K.C. Ling Elementary before making her way over to the High School, you'll find some more fun facts about Mrs. Bell below: • She loves collecting rocks and minerals. If there is a lake nearby, you better give her a few minutes to look in it, or be prepared to pull over if she sees a rock she simply needs to take home with her. • A song she could listen to on repeat is “Gimme Shelter" by The Rolling Stones. • If she won the lottery and decided to give up teaching, she would either work at a florist...or be a lion tamer. In short, she would really love to work around pretty flowers or big cats. • If she could time travel, she would go back in time to 1969 and attend the Woodstock Music Festival to see some of her all time favorites play while they were still alive. • The worst fashion decision she's made? Tying a hoodie around her hips every day when she was around 9 years old. She never actually wore the hoodie, it was simply a 90's fashion statement. We’re so grateful to have you in our Huskie Pack, Mrs. Bell! #Huskietastic #Since1863 #HPSDPackLeader #HemlockStrong #HemlockHuskies
