The Freeland 6th grade band delivered an excellent performance last night to end a run of 3 excellent band concerts in 7 days.
During the 7th & 8th grade band concert on Tuesday evening, Mr. Shaw was recognized by the Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association (MSBOA) and presented with the District V Teacher of the Year Award! Below is the nomination submission that was shared with those in attendance on Tuesday. Congratulations Mr. Shaw and thank you for all you do for our band program and FCSD's students! "I would like to nominate Mr. Steven Shaw. This is Steve’s 12th year of teaching at Freeland Schools. He teaches 5th grade through 12th grade band classes. Before coming to Freeland, Steve taught in the Corunna Public Schools for 5 years. Under Steve’s direction, the Freeland Bands have consistently received 1st Division ratings at Band and Orchestra Festival. Steve currently serves as the Treasurer of MSBOA, District 5. He has held this position for the last 10 years and has done an absolutely amazing job. He is one of the main reasons that District V continues to have a very healthy fund balance. Before becoming our Treasurer, he served District V as the 2nd vice president for Band & Orchestra. At that time, the vice-president not only collected the registrations and money, but he was also responsible for hiring all of the adjudicators for those festivals. Steve has also been an active mentor to our new members. Steve works hard to grow and nurture the band family in Freeland. He empowers student leaders to plan fun team building activities each month. He takes the band on trips, including taking the high school band to Disney/Universal in March 2022. He makes his students feel loved, appreciated, and accepted. Steve has a heart for serving others and shares that with his students by taking them to perform at retirement communities and a local school with special needs students. He loves to impact and encourage young people. He is beginning his 8th year as a youth group leader at church and he counsels at a summer bible camp. Steve grew up in Livonia and attended Clarenceville High School. He earned his BME at Central Michigan University and his Masters in Conducting at the American Band College through Sam Houston University. Steve currently resides in Saginaw with his wife Lindsey and their three children. Steve is a phenomenal colleague -- he's detail-oriented, dependable, and a fabulous collaborator. He works with many musical members of the community. He has brilliant educational ideas, and is more than willing to share the wealth. He's encouraging to both students and colleagues - truly wants the very best for everyone."

The Freeland Community School District (FCSD) is committed to preparing all students for the demands and opportunities of the 21st Century by providing a challenging curriculum that connects students' lives to their future in a safe and supportive environment. The district is conducting a Graduate Profile Survey from April 17, 2023 to May 5, 2023 to collect information on the development of a Graduate Learner Profile for FCSD Students. Feedback provided from this survey will support the development of a common definition on what it means to be a 21st Century learner. The Graduate Profile will guide District planning and action steps that will be targeted to support our collective vision for our graduates. The Graduate Profile is a collective vision outlining the community's aspirations for all FCSD students. This document will include academic, technical, personal, and social skills that all students should possess upon graduation. Here is a link to the Graduate Profile Survey. It is a three question survey that can be completed in approximately three minutes of your time. Your input on this survey is invaluable. We appreciate your time. https://forms.gle/hMyKpeFbEmWJ4Vqd8
