Summer of 2018-19 Newsletter & Parent Calendar
Check out this opportunity from our library
On Saturday, February 2, 2019 from 9:15AM – 1:00PM, the Westland Public Library is offering a FREE full-length practice SAT to get your students in Grades 9th – 12th prepared for the real test in April. As you know, taking a practice SAT is a great way for students to get familiar with the format, figure out their strengths and weaknesses, and pinpoint exactly where to focus to get the best results. The practice test will be provided and administered by Sylvan Learning of Livonia and will take roughly 3 hours to complete. The tests will then be graded and results will be mailed to the participants for review.
Registration is required. To register, students can visit the library, call the library at 734-326-6123 or register online at http://westlandlibrary.evanced.info/signup/calendar. There is space for 50 students. Participants must arrive on time or admittance to the practice test will not be allowed.

The district is asking our community to share their ideas about what high school graduates need to be successful. Please share your thoughts and rate the other thoughts that have been submitted so we can collect comprehensive data to help us plan for the redesign of our secondary schools. I have attached a PDF with a QR reader and password to access the sight. The sight is an app that is designed to gather information in a unique way. Thanks for taking the time to communicate with us! We have an exciting time to enhance our school building thanks to our supportive community.
We are always looking for ways to connect parents to our school. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities. I have attached a parent volunteer form. If you are interested, please turn this completed form into the main office for Mrs. Gridley, the WMHS parent coordinator.
One goal for our building is to make sure Wayne Memorial students do well on the SAT. We want to make sure all of our students have the opportunities they deserve. A SAT score, which Juniors take in the Spring, is an important factor in creating these opportunities. All students should be using Khan Academy to gain customized SAT prep.
In addition to Khan Academy at home, our district supports these efforts so much, we have prepaid for personalized test prep for students. Wayne-Westland Community Schools will be hosting a free SAT Academy at John Glenn High School in partnership with Oakland University.
The Spooktacular is free family fun night that Wayne Memorial hosts for children 6th grade and under. Children and their families come to the high school and trick or treat through the halls followed by a performance by the marching band.

We are looking for candy donations and volunteers for the Spooktacular Community Night. Please contact Sue Webb (734 - 788 - 9362 (call or text) or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to volunteer. Please send candy donations to the Wayne Memorial High School main office prior to 10/23/18
Wayne Memorial High School is the only high school in the state to have a dedicated Upward Bound program inside our school Please see the attached video and considering having your student join.
Pictures ordered during picture day will be going home on Monday. Students will be given their picture packets in class by their teacher (most likely math class). If you do not like your student’s photograph, students can take retakes on October 29th. Students will need to have their picture packet with them to go to retakes. Students that missed picture day will also be given the opportunity to take a picture for their ID and yearbook on October 29th.
