CPPS - Enrollment Update

From: http://www.cppschools.com/

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am writing to you today to deliver good news concerning the district. After having diligently worked to verify enrollment last week, our K-12 student count is higher than anticipated. We had planned and budgeted for 2,375 students in the spring and can verify 2,438 students as of Friday, September 10.

This increase in students will necessitate the addition of some instructional staff. Building administrators have expressed specific areas of concern and where additional resources could prove to be the most beneficial for students.

Based on this information, I am pleased to share with you that we will be adding instructional staff in kindergarten, first grade, second grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade.

Alpine Township, Mich. (WZZM) - Kent County deputies say someone started a fire at Alpine Elementary school Saturday.

It happened sometime during the morning hours at the school in the 4700 block of Baumhoff NW.

Deputies say someone broke out a small window on the front door.  Then they took a glass bottle with a flamable liquid, put a burning rag in it and threw it into the building.

The bottle broke as it went through the opening in the glass.

Deputies say there was a burn mark on the outside of the door as well as on the carpet inside the door.

The Kent County Sheriff's Department is investigating and asks anyone with information to call the department or Silent Observer.

Remembering September 11, 2002

Few if any will ever forget the morning of September 11, 2002.  Nearly 3,000 people died that day as the direct result of  one of the most horrific assaults on innocent victims ever penetrated  on United States soil by foreign nationals.
On this day our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victims and of those who died or were injured trying to help victims survive.
 On this day, September 11, 2010 Alpine Township Fire Fighters showed up in full force to give drivers along Alpine Ave and Four Mile Road the boot.  The boot was filled a number of times by generous drivers  in a successful effort to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy. 

Comstock Park cruises to win over Belding

BELDING (WZZM) -- In the O-K Blue opener for both teams, Comstock Park traveled to Rudness Field to face Belding.

The Panthers opened the scoring when quarterback Jake Brown ran it in from 21 yards out. Brown would add another touchdown run of three yards to put Comstock Park up 14-0.

The Panthers Kevin McCarthy added to the lead in the second quarter with a 50-yard touchdown run. Comstock Park would cruise from there, moving to 2-1 with a 46-7 win over the Redskins.

Look for Pedestrian Traffic and School Busses

With school in full swing again, drivers should pay closer attention to pedestrians, both in suburban as well as rural neighborhoods.  Alpine Township has a significant number of streets without sidewalks.   Also please remember that it is illegal to pass a schoobus that is flashing its red lights.
