Weekly Letter to Students Parents and Staff

Dear Wayne-Westland Students, Staff and Families,

As we remember and reflect on the tragic events at Oxford High School last November, let us take a moment to offer our support to their entire community. On Nov. 30, 2021, devastation struck Oxford High School, shaking students, educators and parents in Michigan and across the nation. Please join me in remembering the students who lost their lives that day: Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana and Justin Shilling.

One year later, it is still difficult to comprehend this tragedy. We know there will be an increase in news coverage and social media postings this week regarding Oxford. Unfortunately, this tragedy is also a sobering reminder that terrible events can happen anywhere at any time.

Weekly Letter to Students, Parents and Staff

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.
