Roadrunner Red Fridays

Every Friday, we encourage our students, staff and families to wear Roadrunner spirit wear and/or red to celebrate being a Roadrunner. Of course we also have some fun with it and add a little competition as well. Each Friday, we select 3 classes with the most Roadrunner spirit. We select one winning class for grades (k-2), (3-5) and McGrath. Each winning class gets a Roadrunner flag that will hang outside of their classroom for the following week to show off their Roadrunner spirit. Go Roadrunners!

WWCS Summer Programs: We are proud to partner with several community organizations to offer our students a variety of exciting summer programs. These programs include:

  • BUSting with Learning brings literacy resources directly to elementary students, offering free books, school supplies, and engaging games and activities. The initiative extends its reach by traveling through neighborhoods to distribute books directly to children, ensuring resources are accessible to all.
  • KinderLit Summer Camp for rising Young 5s and Kindergarten students.

Together, these initiatives and partnerships ensure Great Futures Start Right Here in Wayne-Westland Community Schools. Thank you for being a part of our community and supporting students along their educational journey.

Today was a very special day at Roosevelt-McGrath. Miss Jurnie was our student Principal of the Day. She is an amazing leader. Jurnie was very busy helping students and staff all day. She read to many classrooms, she helped in the lunchroom, she helped us celebrate the Roadrunner Red winning classrooms. In addition, she had some wonderful visitors from our friends at the Wayne Police Department and the Wayne Fire Department. Jurnie had a smile on her face all day and helped so many people. She was a great Principal of the Day. Thank you Miss Jurnie!

A parent surprised Mrs. Smith this morning with a gift card at her crossing guard position. This was such a great act of kindness from a wonderful parent recognizing all of the hard work and dedication Mrs. Smith exhibits each day to support the safety of our students, parents and staff. She starts the day and ends the day at the crossing guard position…rain, snow or sun…with a smile!
