This Saturday (9/23) is one of two dates where the Little Lady Rams Basketball and Rocket Football Programs overlap at Baseline Middle School. This overlap will undoubtedly make for a busy couple hours at the school. We ask that parents and fans please park in approved areas, respect other drivers, and that if extra space is needed, that we use North Shore Elementary as overflow parking. Thanks and Go Rams!
JV Football — Due to concerns about the heat, the start time for tonight’s JV football game (8/23) at Dowagiac has been pushed back to 7:30 pm. Athletes and parents should check their email for more information.
As you know, for the past two years, South Haven Public Schools along with many other districts across the county, state, and nationally, have been impacted by a bus driver shortage. With the generous assistance of our school families volunteering to transport student athletes to competitions this year, our kids have enjoyed great athletic experiences. We are truly grateful to our dedicated parents/guardians and coaches for coming together to support our students in this way and ask that we continue to utilize the systems we’ve put in place going into the 2023-24 school year. If you have a middle or high school student participating in athletics and are willing to transport kids to and from competitions, etc., please take a moment to fill out the Volunteer Form. This is a required form to drive students and generates a simple background check to further ensure safety. You can find the form by going to: https://southhavenmi.sites.thrillshare.com/page/volunteer-applications We thank you, again, for assisting the district in making the best out of a difficult situation. The district is actively searching for bus drivers! If you or someone you know may be interested, please reach out to us at (269) 637-0500 or apply at www.shps.org
Please note - the Administration Building will be closed Monday, July 3rd through Wednesday, July 5th. It will reopen with regular hours on Thursday, July 6th. Thank you and have a safe weekend!
This past school year the South Haven Athletic Department adopted FinalForms, an online forms and data management service that has made our record-keeping easier and safer for athletes and their parents. As the new school year approaches, FinalForms has now rolled over to the upcoming 23-24 athletic year and participants must update their information. All returning athletes and parents MUST log in to update their forms using their existing username and password. In most cases this simply means verifying your existing information. Parents and students are BOTH required to update their forms. You can access the FinalForms Login at https://southhaven-mi.finalforms.com/. Athletes that are new to South Haven Athletics, and incoming 6th graders, must register for the first time. See this article on our website if you are new to FinalForms: https://www.shps.org/o/athletics/article/800654 All questions can be directed to the South Haven Athletic Department at 269-637-0503. Thank you and have a great weekend.

As many of you know, with the 2022-23 school year beginning before Labor Day this year, our traditional graduation date fell on Memorial Day Weekend. This allowed the district to survey stakeholders and select a new date - May 19, 2023. Since that announcement was made, the regional track meet location, date, and time were set by this year’s host, Berrien Springs. Unfortunately, the meet has also been scheduled for May 19th. Instead of putting our senior athletes in a position of deciding between running in the finals and their graduation date, we have been forced to shift our graduation ceremony. It will now take place at Ratcliffe Field on Sunday, May 21, 2023 at 2:00 PM. We thank you for your flexibility and eagerness to celebrate the Class of 2023 with us this spring.
