Elementary students Learning to Give by making lunches for homeless

The students at Edison Elementary School in Westland spread a lot of love along with peanut butter and jelly today when they made bag lunches for the homeless members of our community.

During their Life Skills class the students, with assistance from district staff, made a “Lunch of Love” which included a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, chips, granola bars and water packed in a hand-decorated bag. Each bag also included a student-written inspirational message.

This project was made possible by a grant through Learning To Give, called Lunches of Love. They provided $500 for supplies. Additionally, the students brought in jars of peanut butter.

“Our students have been learning about the community, giving, hunger, how to be a philanthropist and what that means for the past several weeks in Life Skills,” said Amy Peters, an instructional coach at Edison Elementary School. “These kids are beyond excited to make a difference to someone during this service learning project!”

The lunches will be delivered to  Full Gospel Temple's overnight warming station located in Westland.

P.D. Graham Elementary School Hosts Annual Holiday Concert

2018-12-11 - Graham Holiday Concert 07
External LinkView all images from this event

On Tuesday, December 11th, P.D. Graham Elementary School hosted the annual 1st and 2nd Grade Holiday Concert under the direction of music teacher John Gonthier.  The attendance for the concert was so outstanding, that the event is going to be moved to the gym at Stevenson Middle School next school year. Multiple students not involved with the concert showed up to help pass out programs and move all available chairs from the classroom into the gym.  After all of the chairs had been moved, there was still barely enough room for standing room only. It speaks directly to the level of support for music education at P.D. Graham Elementary School.

Each grade sung a grand total of three songs and then came together on stage at the end of the concert to perform a joint choir singing of Jingle Bells.  This was also an opportunity for audience participation. The performance was spectacular and the students should be very proud of what was accomplished.

DWMHA nominated our Hicks Elementary Principal Amy Gee for NAMI Award and she WON!

2019-03-16 - DWCMHA nominated our Hicks Elementary Principal Amy Gee for NAMI Award Collage

DWMHA nominated Mrs. Amy Gee for a NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Award for all the work she has done at Hicks to advocate and serve our families that have more significant needs. She won the award! They even purchased tickets for her and her husband to attend the NAMI Black Tie Gala tomorrow evening at the Renaissance Center downtown. It's apparently ball gown fancy! Regardless if she “wins”... she is already a winner in Wayne-Westland. 

Let’s congratulate and show some family love for one of our own!

Adams hosted Painting with a Parent for 25 students and their parent.  Our art teacher, Mr. Millett led a class similar to “Painting with a Twist” where parents and students created canvas paintings.  Food was provided and both the parent and student will leave with their own painted canvas! This activity was planned by our Family and Community Engagement Committee in an effort to get more of our parents involved at Adams.

Students create parachutes via distance learning

Fifth-grade students in Mrs. Wade’s class at Adams Upper Elementary live video distance with Ann Arbor Hands On Museum-3
Fifth-grade-students-in-Mrs.-Wade’s-class-at-Adams-Upper-Elementary-live-video-distance-with-Ann-Arbor-Hands-On-Museum-1-2

Fifth-grade students in Mrs. Wade’s class at Adams Upper Elementary School in Westland participated in a live video distance learning program in conjunction with the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum.  Students first learned how a parachute's surface area affects its air resistance or drag force. Students then planned their parachute idea, created it, tested it, and modified it until it was just right.  This activity was an excellent opportunity for students to engage in the Engineering Design Process.

For more information on this project, please contact Sandi Wade, 5th Grade Teacher at wades@wwcsd.net, 734-419-2375.

On February 13th the Girls from the Get It Girls Club at Stevenson went with Ms. McComb to the Microsoft Offices in the Detroit Compuware building. This field trip was provided by the Michigan Council of Women and Technology (MCWT) who works with Ms. McComb and her students weekly on Coding Robotics and Women Speakers. The goal of this program is to provide girls with opportunities in technology with the hope to get more girls to consider careers in technology. During this trip the girls listened to a speaker panel from women with careers in Microsoft, they got to do a coding activity with Harry Potter software and wands, and they were able to tour the Microsoft offices.

JGHS Wrestling award

Wrestling award

The #4 ranked John Glenn Rockets punched their ticket to the state wrestling finals!! 

The mighty rockets defeated Livonia Franklin in the semi-final before taking on state powerhouse Temperance Bedford for all the glory. The rockets were in a battle that went to the very last match! In the end, JG came home victorious with a tight 31-29 victory!

Scoring BIG pinpoints for JG was Josh Mars, Ty Cowen, and Caleb Meekins.Grady Bowen had a thrilling overtime victory and Brenten Polk and Kyle Borthwell did what they do best....WIN! Our big man Antoine Hines was a hero once again winning a GREAT match by 1 point.

Ethan Collins scored a late reversal to take away bonus points with only 5 seconds on the clock and Charlie Kersten, Hayden Rhoades, and Justin Morrison wrestled their hearts out against some of the states best, scoring several late points to charge up the team. And finally, Sadiq Sheikhmeeri sealed the victory fighting off his back and dominated his opponent for the last minute of the match to finish the victory for John Glenn! 

The team will battle for a state title next weekend in Kalamazoo at Wings Stadium!
