Zebra Nation,

What an amazing RivalZ Week last week! It was my first time experiencing the RivalZ Week. I was pumped up by our pride and participation! Well done Zebra Nation! Thank you to the Student Senate, Staff, and all of our Students for showing your Wayne Pride and Spirit all week long!

I had the privilege of attending my first Champions Banquet last this past week. I was so impressed and PROUD of the over 100 Zebra’s that participated in the Program AND met their goal to earn a $200 check! That’s right $200 for doing well at school! WOW! EVERY Zebra should be doing this! You need to get in on this program right now. See our Champions Leaders in Room 249 for guidance on how to sign up. Do it asap. Get signed up, use it as motivation, go rock it out, and get paid.

February is here (Wednesday is 2/1/23)! The 3rd Quarter is moving right along! It is crucial that you are IN school everyday, attending every class, and staying IN class in order for you to stay on top of your academic studies. Not attending school and/or missing classes will only put you behind.... You got this! We got you!

Our extra-curriculars at WMHS continue to shine! I am SO PROUD of this! Our music program recently participated in the 2023 District Solo and Ensemble festival. They had amazing results, with students earning Division 1 and Division 2 ratings. Great performances Zebra's! Well done!

RivalZ Week is here! See the information below for everything that is RivalZ Week! Most importantly - fully participate, have fun, and make sure to have pride, discipline, and class all week long and at the games on Friday. #WaynePride #BeatGlenn

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.

Good Evening Zebra Nation

I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Please see the communication below that went out to all of the Zebra Scholars this evening. Also, please note that there is no school for W-W/WMHS Students this coming Tuesday, 11/8 as it is a Staff Professional Development Day. 

Have a great week!! Wayne Pride!! 


Zebra Nation, 

Thank you to all of the scholars that had great heart to heart discussions about keeping WMHS safe, orderly, and disciplined last week, as we are looking to eliminate some of these fights that are taking place here lately. I am hearing that the talking points lead to some very good conversations with positive reflections, and possible actions to take.... Please continue to have those types of 'reflection talks' with your teachers as they will bring your thoughts to the WMHS Leadership. 
Scholars - you have a voice. It's 'ok to say'. You will be heard, valued, and respected. TOGETHER, we will continue to work to have a more positive climate and culture in our school. We got this!!
