Out of 1.6 million students, there were only 219 Semi-Finalists in Michigan, and one was Samuel Winter from Byron Center High School. Congratulations to these young men for their outstanding dedication to excellence!

Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Dan Takens

Summer is a great time to play and rest and make memories with family and friends!  Whether you're having fun in the sun or staying cool in the pool,  I hope you are finding time to enjoy summer festivities and get what you need to rejuvenate your body and mind!  

And while your thoughts are far from school schedules and homework, construction and cleaning crews are working hard all summer to prepare buildings and grounds for school this fall and if you've driven past the high school or West Middle School, you can see the evidence of that work. 

It is a true blessing and honor to serve the community as Superintendent of Schools!

Superintendent Takens
