You're TRRFCC!

At Handy we believe in growing and nurturing the whole child. Part of that comes through character education. We do this by focusing on the six pillars of character - Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship (TRRFCC). Students are recognized and celebrated daily and weekly for demonstrating these pillars of character.

Good Luck to Mrs. Floyd & our students moving on to Michigan History Day state finals!

Huge thanks go to Linda LaVictor & Linda Holmes for our very successful Health & Wellness Family Bootcamp. The efforts of all the volunteers & vendors also mean so much.

Tech Alert!  Teachers Mr. Kraut, Mr. Schabel & Mr. Maze BUILT an underwater ROV robot, capable of locating items underwater, during a ROV in the Classroom program.

7th grade Wildcats would like to say how much they enjoyed their time with the visiting pre-schoolers - reading stories, & working on art projects.
