Message from Mrs. Sheppard - Dear Graham Families,

I hope you have enjoyed the weekend!

We are very excited to send our 5th graders off to Camp Storer this week. I am sure they will love it! Our 5th-grade team has worked so hard to make this happen for our students so I want to thank Ms. Gamble, Ms. Markham, and Mr. Bejczy for all of their hard work.

This week in the Positivity Project we are focusing on OPM (Other People's Mindset). This means when other people succeed, I am happy for them and cheer them on! Here is the parent letter that goes with this trait so that you can discuss it with your child.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

Mrs. Sheppard

Message from Mrs. Sheppard

Dear Graham Families,

I hope you have enjoyed the weekend! The snow was so pretty on Sunday. I hear there will be some more headed our way this week! With snow also comes snowballs. Please remind your child about leaving the snow on the ground when they are at school. We will do the same!

Dear Graham Families,

This week is another short week! We are off tomorrow, January 16th to observe and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's birthday.

Our school uses a program called The Positivty Project. Each week, students learn about a new character trait in their classroom. I am going to start sharing the traits that they will be learning about so that you can talk about them at home as a family. This week, we will focus on the character trait PRUDENCE. There is a parent letter that you can read through to learn about each trait.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.

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.
