Usually the 1st and 2nd place winners from 4th-8th grades will participate in GISD Spelling Bee Competition that will take place on the week of March 15. The 3rd place winners will be alternatives in case 1st or 2nd place winner is not able to attend. I have already emailed the details for the GISD spelling bee competition to the 4th-8th grade winners' parents.
-Monday March 8th Online Only: Genesee Academy will conduct school online only on Monday March 8 except ELC (pre-K, GSRP, and Kg) which will still conduct school in person. Insha Allah, our staff will be getting the second shot of covid-19 vaccine on Saturday March 6. Due to the possible side effects that might result from the vaccine and as a precaution we will conduct school for 1st-12th grades online only on Monday March 8.
-Science Fair Competition: GA Science Fair Competition (for 5th and 7th grades) will be rescheduled for the week of March 15. This rescheduling is due to the Flint Regional Science Fair Competition rescheduling that will now be on April 17.
-Spring Break: Insha Allah, the spring break will be from Monday March 29 to Friday April 2. The school will resume on Monday April 5.
-Ramadan Schedule: Insha Allah, the Ramadan schedule will start on Monday April 12, i.e. the school will start late at 9:30 am (Monday-Friday) for students; however, the dismissal time will stay the same, i.e. at 3:40 pm.
