A Message from the Director...

Dear Career Tech Students and Families,

As we enter the final stretch of the school year, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the amazing journey we've been on together and look ahead to the exciting opportunities that await us in the final quarter.

I have to say, I'm so impressed and proud of every single one of our Career Tech students. The dedication, hard work, and perseverance throughout this semester have been truly inspiring, and I know you'll continue to do great things in the weeks to come.

Remember to stay focused and motivated, and make the most of every opportunity to learn and grow. Whether you're preparing for competitions, completing projects, or mastering new skills, every step you take brings you closer to your goals and aspirations.

Let's keep supporting and uplifting one another, celebrating our achievements, and facing the challenges ahead with confidence and determination.

Wishing you all a successful and fulfilling end to the school year!

Weekly Letter to Students, Parents and Staff

Dear Wayne-Westland Families,

With eight weeks left in the school year, students continue to learn, grow, and thrive. Students and staff are also gearing up for the year's culmination with celebrations and cherished traditions.
