A Message from our Superintendent, Mr. Greg Helmer Greg Helmer - 2015-2016

Dear Community of Mona Shores Public Schools, 

Three words come to mind for this particular communication:  Celebration, Caring, and Opportunity.


Congratulations to the Class of  2017!  Our seniors have officially graduated.  The Class of 2017 earned over 6 million dollars in academic and athletic scholarships.  Our seniors also helped contribute to Mona Shores Public Schools earning national distinction for being named “Best Communities for Music Education.”


I would like to provide our community an update on the day we dedicated, “Sea of Blue”, held on May 19th in honor of Officer Jonathan Ginka, Norton Shores Police Department.  Officer Ginka passed away while on duty, in a tragic car accident.  Our community raised a total of $4,241.16.  A check has been written out to the City of Norton Shores and the funds will be transferred into a trust for Officer Ginka’s two children.  Thank you for your generosity, care, and community support.  We live in a special community!


Last Wednesday night, we held another community forum to continue with our master facilities plan, gather input and feedback, and narrow the focus for the Phase 3 scope of work for our current 3-phase plan.  Please consider watching the following video that captures the current status of our aging facilities.  Click here for video.

Enjoy the remaining days of the school year!

Sailing Forward,

Greg Helmer
