Focus on Fruitport
Fruitport graduate Douglas Yonkers had a zest for life. When he passed away in 2012 at the age of 43 as a result of a motor vehicle accident, his fiancée, Julie Jurkas, along with Doug’s family and friends, wanted to honor his memory.
On March 10th four athletes, one coach, one principal, and 2 teams will be inducted into the Fruitport Athletic Hall of Fame.
Students in Mrs. Burns’ fifth-grade class teamed up with their kindergarten buddies from Mrs. Ferguson’s class to make Valentine’s Day cards for veterans. Students put their art skills to work and came up with very creative greetings. The older students helped mentor the younger students while working one-on-one.
Board Members Honored
This year School Board Appreciation was held on January 22nd. It was an opportunity to honor our board members with a piece of student artwork.
