Fennville High School and Middle School run a combined program for those students interested in hitting the slopes! Called the Snowhawks, the Fennville Ski Club provides students with a fun outdoor activity. The goal is to help first timers become beginners, beginners to become experienced, and the experienced to become skilled skiers. The cost to join is $15 for your Ski Club Card, which then reduces the rental and lift ticket to only $30 each time students go.
For more information, please contact Mr. Mark Gray at the middle school.
National Honor Society
National Honor Society (NHS) membership has been the true mark of student achievement for over 100 years, but it goes far beyond a report card. By empowering, championing, and recognizing well-rounded students, NHS provides schools with a values-based framework to elevate a culture of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Students who meet the 4 pillars of the National Honor Society - Scholarship, Service, Leadership and Character, can be inducted into the Fennville High School Chapter of the National Honor Society.
