We are hosting our first athletic event on Wednesday, September 9th. Our cross country team hosts Hartford @ 5pm. Please note the following- Due to Executive Order 176 (which will allow 2 spectators per athlete) each athlete will be provided 2 tickets to give to family or friends to attend. If you do not have a ticket you are not allowed to attend. In order for sports to be successful it is imperative we all do our part to follow the new rules and guidelines set forth by the Governor's office and the MHSAA. You must social distance away from other family groups. You must also wear a mask when you are outside your vehicle attending sporting events. These rules will be strictly enforced so we do not jeopardize our athletes ability to participate in sports. Anyone not following these guidelines will be in violation of the rules and be asked to leave. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Social distance, mask up, keep on playing.

Yesterday a change in the Governors Executive order and guidance from the Michigan High School Athletic Association gave permission for all Bloomingdale Fall Sports to begin next week. High school football practice will resume Tuesday September 8th (4:00pm-6:30pm) with two days of practice with helmets only and full contact can begin next Thursday. The first scheduled game would most likely be September 18th - varsity football will play a 6 game schedule with the 7th game being the first round of the playoffs all teams would qualify. Decisions on schedules will be made as soon as possible. Volleyball may begin indoor practice on Wednesday September 9th and may have competitions immediately. Bloomingdale is still located in a region of the state that is in Phase 4 so very limited or no fans and strict protocols for athletes and coaches will be adhered to. We will do our best to keep everyone updated as soon as more information becomes available.

This year's Senior Baccalaureate (virtual) service will be held on Sunday, May 17, at 3:30 p.m. via a Zoom Meeting. The link will be shared with all students and staff through their school email addresses prior to the Sunday gathering. The service consists of three main parts: A group of teachers playing instruments and leading the participants in worship songs, Senior students sharing about their faith, and the keynote address given by Kevin Farmer. Typically we provide an ice cream social immediately following the event. This year's format requires that you BYOIC (bring your own ice cream, haha!). Hope to see everyone there as we celebrate our Seniors! 🙂
