The Champions Program is a before and after school childcare program offered at all of the K-6 buildings in the Wayne-Westland Community School District. We provide structured childcare services before and after school, during school breaks, snow days and a summer camp program!

Champions before and aftercare makes the hours before and after school fun and engaging. Kids get everything they need to start the school day energized and end the school day, ready to go home for some quality family time! Our fun and varied program is made up of various hands-on activities that give your child the opportunity to continue learning before and after school.

External LinkView all photos from this event

Adams hosted Painting with a Parent for 25 students and their parent.  Our art teacher, Mr. Millett led a class similar to “Painting with a Twist” where parents and students created canvas paintings.  Food was provided and both the parent and student will leave with their own painted canvas! This activity was planned by our Family and Community Engagement Committee in an effort to get more of our parents involved at Adams.

Students create parachutes via distance learning

Fifth-grade students in Mrs. Wade’s class at Adams Upper Elementary live video distance with Ann Arbor Hands On Museum-3

Fifth-grade students in Mrs. Wade’s class at Adams Upper Elementary School in Westland participated in a live video distance learning program in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum.  Students first learned how a parachute's surface area affects its air resistance or drag force. Students then planned their parachute idea, created it, tested it, and modified it until it was just right.  This activity was an excellent opportunity for students to engage in the Engineering Design Process.

For more information on this project, please contact Sandi Wade, 5th Grade Teacher at wades@wwcsd.net, 734-419-2375.
