We are so grateful for our wonderful students and families. We hope you are able to relax and enjoy time with your family and friends this Thanksgiving.
We want to extend gratitude to Biggby Coffee on Ford Road. They graciously donated coffee for us to serve to families this morning at drop off as a way for us to show a small token of appreciation to you!
There will be a half day on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. Students will be dismissed at 11:00 am. There is no school on Thursday or Friday. School will resume on Monday, November 28, 2022.
Please accept our apologies for having to cancel bus routes this week. Unfortunately, if our drivers are out and we do not have substitute drivers, the district is left with no choice. If this occurs again, we will notify you as soon as we are aware so you can prepare.
There will not be bowling next week on Wednesday. Bowling will resume after Thanksgiving break.
Dear Wayne-Westland Families,
Thank you for your support of Wayne-Westland Community Schools. On November 8, 2022, voters approved a 10-year Sinking Fund to generate about $2.2 million yearly for school building capital improvements. Investing in our infrastructure will help us achieve the district’s goal of ensuring that our facilities are safe, secure, up-to-date and attractive for the well-being of students, staff and the community.
The Sinking Fund allows the district to keep more than 1,868,816 square feet of educational space and 587 acres of grounds and property in a condition suitable for the thousands of students and community members who use the schools daily.
Updates will include:
- Mechanical, electrical and plumbing upgrades
- Carpet, floor, door, light and window replacements
- Kitchen remodels
- Roof replacements
- Parking lot, sidewalk and curb additions and renovations
- Security software upgrades
- Wifi upgrades
- Student and teacher device upgrades
Once again, thank you for your partnership and support of our students and district. Great Futures Start Right Here in Wayne-Westland Community Schools!
John Dignan, Ed.D.
The Book Fair is Coming!
Get ready! The Scholastic Book Fair is coming our way (YAY!). Choosing their own books empowers kids and inspires them to become bolder, prouder, and stronger readers. AND… as always, every book they buy earns rewards for our school library .
Our school’s Book Fair will take place from November 28 through December 2, 2022 at Adams’ School Library. We will be accepting Cash, and Credit/Debit Cards, and eWallets can be created.
EWallets are accounts you create for your student without having to send cash or card with your child. (All money not used from an eWallet can be used to make online purchases.)
Students will have the opportunity to win a before Thanksgiving shopping spree and $5 gift cards to be used solely at our onsite fair.
If you can’t make it to the Fair, then shop at our school’s Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school library. Online shopping does not open until November 21 and runs until December 4.
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with online shopping:
The countdown to more Bookjoy is on! Catch you at the Fair!
