Being careful not to make skin contact with poison ivy vines or slip down the bank to the Thornapple River below, Thornapple Kellogg High School Student Council members helped clear unwanted vines, trees, shrubs and weeds along the Paul Henry Thornapple Trail. They piled limbs and vines and shrubs high into waiting Middleville Village dump trucks.
Drive into the Thornapple Kellogg High School parking lot after school hours and you might be surprised by the artwork filling many of the parking spaces. There’s a 3-D design of a dragon popping out of a painted hole in the asphalt, a football field adorned with a senior’s name and graduation year, words of inspiration “Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti” and a clever “If Yer Reading This – I’m Late. Woops!” saying painted on a bright yellow background.
The Thornapple Kellogg High School Science Department will be gaining some new equipment next year thanks to a grant award through the Barry Community Foundation. The Wilson H. Craig Jr. Fund awarded the district $2,632 to purchase eight new electronic balances for the science programs. Tim Penfield, co-department chair at TK, said the balances will help adequately equip the science rooms with balances and give students ample opportunities to use the scales during classroom projects.
