Sandra Enderle Named Hartland Consolidated Schools Support Person of the Year

April 11, 2024 – Congratulations to Sandy Enderle, Assistant to the Student Nutrition Director, on being named the 2024 Hartland Consolidated Schools Support Person of the Year! Enderle has been in the district for 15 years, and she started as a Cook Assistant at Farms for 3 years, and then transferred to the high school for 2 years. When the position of Assistant to Director of Student Nutrition came open she filled in as temporary and just ended up staying.  She has done her current role, along with Catering Events, for 10 years now. Mikki Cheney, Farms Principal said, “For those who work with her closely, she is known as the ‘Fixer of Everything’! Sandy is known for her positive attitude and her hard work ethic.” Her colleagues describe her as a supreme multi-tasker and a dedicated employee who is the “glue that holds the Student Nutrition Department together.”

Those that know Sandy know Hartland is her home. “What I love most about my job is that every day is different!  I couldn’t love the staff here any more!  Both of my children went all the way through Hartland Schools and it’s so nice to see the difference all of our staff makes.  I love our little (not so little anymore) community that I have lived in for 32 years. I’m just a Tennessee girl who fell in love here and would never leave.”

Congratulations Sandy and thank you for your commitment to HCS!

Ethan Hawker Named 2024 Hartland Consolidated Schools Teacher of the Year

April 12, 2024 – Congratulations to Ethan Hawker, Hartland High School Math teacher, on being named the 2024 HCS Teacher of the Year! Hawker graduated from HCS in 1990 and went to the University of Michigan. After graduating in 1995, he taught for a year in Traverse City before coming back home to Hartland in the fall of 1996. This is his 29th year of teaching–and 28 of those years have been in Hartland! Being in the classroom teaching is what he loves most, and after taking on the role of District Math Coach for 2 years and serving as Assistant Principal for Farms for almost 3 years, he’s now back to teaching math. Many students also know him as Coach Hawker for golf, and he was named Region 6 Coach of the Year, and was nominated for Division 1 Coach of the Year in the fall of 2023.

When asked what he loves most about teaching, Hawker said, “That’s easy – I love the relationships and connections I make with students. I enjoy watching the kids understand difficult topics but it is even more rewarding to get to know them as people and to watch them grow into adults.”

Laura Moore, HEA President, said “Ethan is a tremendous asset to us. He is a positive, funny, caring colleague, teacher, and coach and we are delighted to honor his work as a representation of HCS excellence at its best. ”

From the entire community, thank you Mr. Hawker for your dedication to Hartland students and for challenging them with learning every day!

Local Robotics Team Wins Rookie All-Star Award At State Championships

According to FIRST®, the Rookie All-Star Award celebrates a team that “exemplifies a young but strong partnership effort, as well as implementing
the mission of FIRST® to inspire students to learn more about science and technology.”

The judges had this to say about the team: “You may think this team should be extinct, but they are living large. They are already holding Girl Scout workshops, food drives, and helping FLL teams. They also have extensive sponsor recruitment and engagement. For being a new team, their impressive outreach programs really blew the judges away.”

With this award, the team advances to the FRC World Championships in Houston, TX where they will compete with teams from around the world. The DinoMights are a team
from The STEAM Syndicate. The team is composed of 11 students in 8th through 10th grade from Hartland Consolidated Schools. The students are actively engaged in
growing the program and hope to welcome students from other Livingston County Schools next year.

The STEAM Syndicate is a Livingston County non-profit organization offering STEAM-related educational programming for Livingston County residents and students attending Livingston County schools. The STEAM Syndicate currently offers FIRST robotics (K-12), Girls Solve IT (girls in grades 4-8), and STEAM-based Scout Merit Badge workshops.

Douglas Kuhn Named the 2024 Hartland Parade Grand Marshal

April 14, 2024—

The Hartland Area Community Council is proud to announce the 2024 Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshal is Douglas Kuhn! 

Doug is well known in Hartland and for his involvement in Memorial Day events in the community. He grew up in Hartland, and moved here with his family in 1949 when he was 7 years old. He graduated from Hartland in 1960. From there he went to Flint Community Junior College and earned an Associates Degree in Science and eventually enrolled at Lawrence Tech as a Mechanical Engineering Student.

Kuhn was drafted into the United States Army, October 1967 and served two years active duty and four years reserve status. He did Basic Training, Leadership Training, and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) at Ft. Knox, Kentucky.  Most of the first year was spent at Ft. Knox becoming the Training Company Mail Clerk. He then received orders for overseas deployment to a place called “Leghorn Italy” or Livorno as the rest of the world knows it. The duty station was Camp Darby, which is a huge depot area that supplies Southern Europe and Africa with military supplies. While there, he became the HQ Company Mail Clerk handling all private mail for Post personnel, Department of The Army Civilians, Navy dependents and United Nations Personnel in Pisa, Italy. In an unusual turn of events for a ‘draftee’ in a non-combat area, he attained the rank of E-5, Spec 5. His discharge from active duty occurred in October 1969. 

Kuhn says he was “overjoyed” with the assignment and “while stationed in Europe my wife and I toured Europe until the money ran out!” 

One of the proudest things about serving for him is the opportunity to help others in uniform so they can do their jobs. It also gave him a real understanding of what it means to serve your country by “taking your turn in the barrel.” He feels that is something that is hard to explain to civilians that have not had the experience. 

Over the years Doug has done all kinds of work from farming to engineering, and even serving Hartland Township in various roles over the course of 15 years. Kuhn explained, “I was raised to give back to the community in which you live.”

Those that know Kuhn well know he’s very passionate about Memorial Day. He’s often been heard telling others, “Memorial Day is NOT a day of Celebration but a day of Remembrance for those who gave their lives for their God and Country and their loved ones! They gave their lives for what this Country and Flag stand for. The Cemetery Services are the sincere reminder of this respect. Hartland’s Memorial Day Parade is a chance for the community to gather and remember the sacrifices of others for their freedoms! It is critical in building community pride and cohesion, too.”

March 17, 2024 — The world’s favorite nanny will fly into Livingston County as Hartland High School
Drama Club presents “Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins,” Friday through Sunday, April 19-
21, and April 26-28, at Hartland High School (HHS), 10635 Dunham Road in Hartland. Showtimes are Friday

delightfully new way. “Most everyone has seen the movie, but there are some wonderful differences in the staged
version of this classic,” says Usher. “We learn a lot more about the Banks family and gain an understanding as to
why things are the way they are prior to Mary Poppins entering their lives. While I love the classic movie, it is
for that reason that I love the stage musical of ‘Mary Poppins’ even more.”

Continuing Hartland Drama Club’s tradition of excellence, “Mary Poppins” showcases breathtaking dance
numbers, choreographed by Karen Whittaker, spectacular vocals, guided by HHS Director of Choirs Bailey
Tallman, and an impressive 29-student orchestra pit, rehearsed and conducted by Tallman.

Michigan Department of Education Releases School Grades

January 10, 2024–

The Michigan Department of Education has released school grades for the 2022-2023 school year and Hartland Consolidated Schools has seven schools with the grade of A and a designation of a Reward School. Each year MDE ranks schools academically based on student proficiency. Schools in the top 5% of the Top-to-Bottom ranking are Reward Schools. To note, the 22-23 school year is the last year using the grading system that has been in place since 2018. Those results were sent directly to the school systems in December of 2023.

Hartland Superintendent, Chuck Hughes, was excited to share that Hartland schools continue to receive stellar grades. Hughes also said in his weekly update to parents, “This is outstanding news to report to the community. Thank you to the students, staff, and parents for your continued focus on working hard and supporting education.”

Grades for Proficiency:
Creekside Elementary A and Reward School
Lakes Elementary A and Reward School
Round Elementary A and Reward School
Village Elementary A and Reward School
Farms Intermediate A and Reward School
Middle School A and Reward School
Hartland High School A and Reward School
Hartland Virtual Academy and LEGACY Compliant and Met Academic Progress (MDE changed how it handles Alternative High School grading to these two highest ratings.)

As of May 2023, passed by the state legislature and signed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, House Bill 4166 eliminates the grade system for public school rankings. The new Michigan school index system provides an overall score on a scale of 0 to 100 and separate ratings for student growth, proficiency and graduation. The system also grades each school numerically for English learner progress, attendance rates, post-secondary enrollment and staffing ratios.

“We feel the new system hits all the main categories the community is interested in, and thinks are important,” Hughes said. He listed student proficiency, student growth, attendance and graduation rates as key categories. To see those in effect, click the link below.

Hartland Township’s Credit Rating Upped to the Highest Level in its History

January 3, 2024–

On December 19, 2023, Hartland Township’s credit rating was upgraded to Aa1 by Moody’s Investor Service. Previously at an Aa2, this new designation is the second highest rating possible. This upgrade signals the continued improvement in the Township’s finances and the favorable economic conditions of the area. Over the past two
decades, the Township’s credit rating has steadily improved and now stands at its highest level ever.

The Township’s credit rating is a significant factor in determining the cost of financing infrastructure projects and improvements. The upgraded rating will provide for lower
borrowing costs for the Township taxpayers in the future.

In announcing the rating upgrade, Moody’s reported that “Hartland Township benefits from strong reserves and liquidity” and continues to experience population growth due to its access to employment and educational opportunities. Moody’s also points out that the Township
Management has shown a history of prudent budget practices and maintains a long-term capital plan, which has led to consistently growing finances.

“This improved rating is a testament to many hands working together to do good work” says Hartland Township’s Finance Director Susan Dryden-Hogan. “Our Township Board’s fiscally responsible policies, our staff’s excellent budgeting practices, and the residents’ stable tax base and growth have all contributed to this high distinction.”

The rating upgrade came as a part of the Township’s annual surveillance by Moody’s. The Township is also rated as ‘AA+’ by S&P Global, equivalent to Moody’s new rating
