IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WZMQ) – As the back-to-school season approaches, Iron Mountain High School took the initiative to ensure that students and families are prepared for the upcoming academic year. Today, the school organized a special event called “Navigating the Terrain” aimed at students in grades 5-12.
During the event, students had the opportunity to visit the school, have their pictures taken, receive their schedules, and familiarize themselves with various school clubs and community organizations. Principal Amy Ryan emphasized the importance of the event, stating that it provides a great opportunity for students to come in with their families and become acclimated to the new environment.
“It’s super helpful for especially fifth graders who are transitioning from north or another building to here, and then for our high schoolers to kind of have a different transition to say ok wait, I’m starting high school now,” Principal Ryan explained.
Iron Mountain High School is set to commence the new school year on August 30th. In addition to the back-to-school event, students are also eagerly awaiting the “Meet the Mountaineers” event scheduled for tonight. During this event, various sports teams will be introduced, fostering a sense of camaraderie and school spirit among the students.
Iron Mountain Public Schools also took the opportunity to remind the public about the urgent need for substitute teachers. The school district encourages qualified candidates to visit https://www.edustaff.org/ to apply and proceed with the application process. By becoming a substitute teacher, individuals can contribute to the education of Iron Mountain students and make a positive impact on their academic journey.
Iron Mountain High School is actively seeking dedicated volunteers to support the Athletic Booster Club by assisting at concession stands during various sporting events. School officials emphasize that even a mere half-hour or hour of volunteer service can have a significant impact on the success of the Iron Mountain Athletic Boosters. Interested individuals are encouraged to sign up at www.immountaineers.org, where they can select their preferred time slots and contribute to the enhancement of the school’s athletic programs.
The Iron Mountain school district is pleased to introduce a new addition to its administrative team. An accomplished and experienced Athletic Director has been appointed, who will also serve as the new assistant principal. This appointment highlights the district’s commitment to fostering a well-rounded educational experience for its students, placing importance on both academic and extracurricular development. The school district eagerly anticipates the positive contributions the new Athletic Director and assistant principal, Brad Perry, will make to the athletic programs and overall school environment.
