Hello Hamilton Families!

I can't believe that we are already at the end of January! We are just moving right along through the year. Our students are growing so much and gaining strength in so many areas! We have all just completed our Winter NWEA tests and parent reports will be sent home at the end of the week. If you have any questions please reach out to your child’s teacher for guidance. Please remember this is only one snapshot of your child’s academic progress. Look at areas to celebrate and also for areas that need additional support. Here are some ways you can be a part of the home-school team and support your child at home.

January 23-27 Updates

Well Winter might be here this time! I know it made a mess on the roads but I did enjoy seeing the snow fall! Please remember that if we should have bad weather and a snow day is called, you will be notified by email and robo call, the information will also be posted on wwcsd.net. Also, please remember to send a pair of shoes in with your child so they can change out of wet boots while they are in the building.

Hello Hamilton Families!!

I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. One of my favorite quotes from him is “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character–that is the goal of true education”. MLK jr. I am proud to say that is always a goal of education here at Hamilton. Our monthly spotlight behavior is a great example of this. This month we are focusing on self control and doing your personal best. Each day at Hamilton we incorporate social and emotional regulation skills that help students develop life long skills that will support a thriving future. Our goal is not to just fill students with facts, but to help them think critically, apply their knowledge and have the personal skills and drive to be successful in every area of their lives. I am very proud of the work that is done at Hamilton every day!

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.

Happy Halloween!!  I am excited for our parade on Monday!  We will parade starting at 10:30.  Students will parade inside or out depending on the weather.  If it is raining parents will be invited to watch the parade from the lunchroom where the students will parade across the stage.  If the weather is dry we will parade outside and parents are invited to stand outside on the grass side of the sidewalk.  Please do not stand between the building and sidewalk as we will have students standing there before they join the parade.  Teachers will lead the parade around the whole building so everyone can see the students!  Because of the wonderful donations students will have 18 candy stations they will stop at to collect candy!  Please remember no weapons of any kind.  Parents and family members are welcome to watch the parade but may not walk in or with the parade.  Thank you in advance for your understanding and support with this!
