TK Students Continue the Circle of Giving

Philanthropy isn’t a word most fifth-graders use often. But it is a word they fully understand now and have practiced themselves with the help of the Circle of Giving project through the Barry Community Foundation’s Youth Advisory Council. “Philanthropy is giving people your time, talents and treasures to help other people,” said fifth-grader Collyn Genther.

5th Graders Travel the World

Jacob Koster and his fifth-grade Page Elementary classmates have all been to the South Carolina Aquarium, Joshua Tree National Park and Lake Tahoe - all this year! It’s all thanks to technology and the ability to take virtual field trips via Skype and Google Chat around the country.

Page Elementary Crowns Spelling Bee Champion

It took 22 rounds before Emersyn Gorman outlasted the other 17 contestants to win the Page Elementary Spelling Bee. Emersyn won by correctly spelling “stirrups” and then “Columbia.” Runner-up Exley Roon missed on the word “divan” in the 22nd round. Each fourth and fifth-grade classroom sent one representative to the school final competition. The final spelling bee was held in the Thornapple Kellogg High School auditorium where the rest of the Page students and family members gathered.

She Said "Yes"

Abby Niemiec said "yes" to Ross Kammeraad's proposal of marriage in front of her fourth-grade class. Truth be told, the couple got engaged over the weekend, but they knew how important all the students were and decided to stage another proposal just for them!

Battle of the Buildings Returns Nov. 13

TK bragging rights are one the line in the annual Battle of the Buildings Nov. 13. Members from each building within the district will compete in fun (and sometimes goofy) basketball competitions.

Principal Starts “TK Strong Call of the Day”

Getting a call from the school principal isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, parents of students at Page Elementary may look forward to getting a call this year. Principal Gregg Bruno is starting what he calls the “TK Strong Call of the Day.” Each day one student will be selected and brought to the office. Together the principal and the student will make a good news call to a parent.

New Page Principal Ready to Meet Students and Families

As a new principal at Page Elementary School, Gregg Bruno admits he still gets that “jittery feeling” the first day of school and is especially looking forward to starting his new role at Page. “I’m going to be present,” he said. “I hope to greet students every morning when they come to school. I’m going to be in the hallways and classrooms and lunch room as much as possible.”

Principal Leaves Big "Princess" Shoes to Fill

Page Elementary Principal Mike Gelmi announced recently he was leaving TK Schools for a position closer to home where he would be able to spend more time with his family. Everyone can understand that. Kids grow up so fast. But his leaving the district definitely leaves some very big "princess" shoes to fill. Gelmi leaves a legacy of wacky hats, socks, wigs, and especially reading month challenges he's happily shared with students year after year.

Page Principal Announces He's Leaving TK

Good morning Page Families,
I wanted to communicate with our Page Elementary families that I have accepted an elementary principal position at Central Elementary School in Grandville Public Schools for the 2019-2020 school year. It is a K-6 building with some opportunities to grow professionally and half the distance from my home near Zeeland.  I am really looking forward to the opportunity but also excited to be able to be home at different times to do things like coaching my boys baseball team etc., that just doesn't work currently with the commute.  The distance and family time is the biggest reason for my decision, but excited about a new opportunity to grow.
