    Hello Vikings

    This is Mr. Willie Lewis, the Principal of Pathways High School.  On behalf of the staff of Pathways I would like to welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year.  

    We are looking forward to a great year filled with smiles, accomplishments and hard work. The hallways and classrooms are being cleaned, the floors are being waxed, and the rooms are being assembled with you in mind.   We are looking forward to having you back in the building and helping you build your future.  We have revamped some of the courses we teach and have built some new relationships with community partners to make our career oriented high school experience the best in the county.   

    We have some exciting changes in store for this school year.  We are welcoming two new staff members to the Pathways teaching staff. Mr. Mida will be teaching our history courses and Mrs. Brutus is our new English instructor. We are looking forward to starting the year off on a great note with excellent new teachers.    

    We are hosting a few events to kick the year off.

Furthermore, we do not allow for students to have food delivered from local restaurants via DoorDash or any other food service.

We will have a food truck tailgate (owners are JHS alumni) starting at 4:30 in our bus loop, an alumni basketball game at 5:00, the homecoming parade will begin at Walmart at 6:00pm., Vikings football team takes on Tecumseh at 7:00pm, and the halftime show features our JXN high marching band and the Alumni band! You don’t want to miss this year’s festivities!

    Our homecoming dance will be held on October 1, in our fieldhouse from 8:00- 11:00pm. Admission cost is $10. If you are a parent/guardian who is interested in helping at the dance, please give our main office a call!
