Hello and Happy New Year!

As a school, we will focus on our P2 of Other People Matter (OPM): Know that your words and actions affect others. It is vital for all of us to reflect on how what we say and/or do can have positive or negative reactions in others. As adults, we lead by example. Our children/students watch how we treat others. We look forward to reading, discussing, and watching video clips of creativity this week.

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.
