The Wayne-Westland Wrap Up- February 2, 2023

Greetings Wayne-Westland Families,

Today is Ground Hog Day which means spring is hopefully just around the corner even though our recent weather has proven that winter is not over yet! Since the colder temperatures will probably be with us for a bit longer, please remember to keep your children bundled up when they go outside. Many of our students walk to school, wait at a bus stop or go out to recess during the school day. It is important for their health and safety that they wear a coat, hat, gloves, and boots to keep them warm. If you need assistance with winter gear for your child, please contact the office staff at your child’s school.

Dear Wayne-Westland Students, Staff and Families,

November has been a very exciting month for many of our students. Our Wayne Memorial High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team is in the National Preseason Top 40 for the first time. We are proud of all the hard work and energy put into the program. 

Students from our elementary and middle schools had the opportunity to visit Michigan State University, where they toured the campus and got to watch a women's basketball game. Another group of middle school students visited Lawrence Technological University and participated in STEM day. HYPE Athletics made a $10,000 donation to our PBIS program, which provides students with positive behavior with a one-day pass to the facility. We continue to work with our community partners to offer our students the most hands-on and comprehensive opportunities.
