Principal's Message

Hello CSI families!

I hope you have been enjoying your summer!  I am looking forward to meeting our newest group of 9th grade students as they begin their amazing journey at CSI.  Our 9th grade student orientation will be returning to Camp Echo Grove on August 31, 2022.  Students will be lead by camp counselors through a series of fun team building activities.  This will be a fantastic opportunity for students to bond as they come together for the first time from six Junior High Schools and one High School in Henry Ford the II.  Permission slips will be sent out electronically and will need to be turned in by the morning of September 1, 2022 for your student to participate.

For all families, a communication will come out the week of August 15, 2022 with all other details your will need to be ready for the start of CSI.  Please keep in mind your students CSI schedule will be reflected when you attend your student's registration date at their home school.

Please take the time to enjoy the last two weeks of summer vacation as we continue to prepare for an incredible 2022-2023 school year.
