MacGregor's Message 2/7/20 
Dear Families,

Today marks the end of National School Counseling Week 2020. The week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), highlights the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and the tremendous impact they have on our students. We are fortunate to have exceptional counselors working with our students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Please join me in thanking our school counselors for all that they do for our students.

Last month, Howell High School student council members Jack Johnson and Zoey Rector-Brooks presented a session on the school’s Senior Survivor Kick-off Carnival to attendees at the Michigan Associations of Student Councils (MASC) Regional Conference. The presentation shared how the students planned the event and how it was a great start to Senior Survivor Week. It was selected as one of the top presentations at the Regional Conference and Jack and Zoey were invited to present at the MASC State Conference later this month. This year’s Senior Survivor Kick-Off Carnival is set for Friday, April 24 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Howell High School Field House. To learn more, please visit http://bit.ly/2UBWyPU. In speaking about MASC, I would be remiss if I did not recognize Howell High School senior Delaney Field who is a member of the MASC Student Board of Delegates.

The Howell High School JV Quiz Bowl Team has had a great season which includes claiming the KLAA League Championship. Next month, The Livingston County Community Alliance (LCCA) and Wake Up Livingston (WUL) will host The Reality Tour and several local businesses will welcome our students during the Liv Co Job Shadow Day. You can read more about each of these stories below.

Howell High School JV Quiz Bowl Team Wins League Championship
The Howell High School JV Quiz Bowl team had an amazing season. The team won the KLAA League Championship with a record of 11-0 and went 12-1 overall in the Tri-County League. Additionally, four members of the Howell Quiz Bowl program were named KLAA team MVPs. Quiz bowl is a team academic competition that tests students' knowledge on a variety of subjects including all school subjects, pop culture, fine arts, literature, and general trivia.

The Reality Tour Returning to Livingston County
The Livingston County Community Alliance (LCCA) and Wake Up Livingston (WUL) will be hosting The Reality Tour on March 7 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The Reality Tour takes parents and children through a day in the life of a teenager who chooses to use drugs. This is a dynamic experience and a great way to encourage and assist parents in talking with their pre-teen/teen about substance use and the negative impact it can have on their lives.

Liv Co Job Shadow Day is March 20
Howell High School juniors who are interested in learning more about career opportunities in our local area will have the opportunity to do so on March 20 during the Liv Co Job Shadow Day. Countywide, employers have volunteered to host students for a day at their organizations to experience what a day in their career field is like. Opportunities include areas like IT, Marketing, Nursing, Robotics and many more! Student sign up is now open and ends on March 7. Students can find more information in Google Classroom by using the classroom code “ib6ez5c” or by contacting Mrs. Marcum in the high school counseling office.
