If your child is enrolled in our schools and you would like to receive text messages from Anchor Bay School District, send a text message to (67587) with the words “opt in” or “subscribe” as the message. We checked the reports that are issued by School Messenger and found that many of the text messages (SMS) were being reported as BLOCKED. This means that parents who received a text message from School Messenger during the initial set up didn’t respond back. School Messenger assumes that you DO NOT want text messages if they do not receive a response. Send a text message to (67587) with the words “opt in” or “subscribe” as the message to correct the issue.

Superintendent Position Announcement

The Board of Education of Anchor Bay School District is conducting a comprehensive search for its next Superintendent. The expected start date for the new Superintendent is July 1, 2021.

Congratulations Giana Maniaci - National Merit Scholarship Finalist

     It is with great joy and pride that we congratulate Anchor Bay senior Giana Maniaci on becoming a National Merit Scholarship Finalist. 

     In October of 2019, 21,000 high schools and 1.5 million students entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 PSAT/NMSQT.  The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. High School Seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.

     From there a detailed scholarship application was submitted that highlighted Giana’s outstanding academic record, participation in school and community activities, and honors received. These amazing accomplishments moved her into the Finalist phase of the program.

     The district sends there sincerest congratulations to Giana on this great honor and wishes her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
