The Michigan Community Service Commission is excited to launch the 2018 Michigan Youth Service Poster Contest!  This competition gives young artists the chance to gain state wide recognition for their talents, while also making an impact in their communities.  As the state’s lead agency on volunteerism, we believe that all Michigan residents can empower and strengthen their communities from an early age.  Participation is open to all youth enrolled in grades K-12.  Participants are required to construct an original design that reflects the theme of volunteer advocacy.  Global Youth Service Day is April 20, and will serve as the deadline for design submissions.  Winning posters will be unveiled at the Govenor’s Service Awards on June 5, 2018 in Lansing!

With the institution of School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention (PBIS) Support, any infraction that occurs requiring an assigned out of school suspension is considered a major offense.  Any student that causes a major infraction resulting in an out of school suspension will not be allowed to participate or attend any school function.  It is our philosophy that school events are designed for students that have not broken the rules and are in good standing academically and behaviorally.  These events include all dances including prom, any celebration of achievement, and the senior barbeque.   If a student is out of school suspended they are not allowed on school grounds or at any before or after school sponsored event while on suspension this does include away sporting events.
