8th Grade High School Course Selections

Counselors from both John Glenn and Wayne Memorial spoke to all 8th grade American History classes this week. All 8th grade students need to submit their course selections in MiStar no later than Friday, February 10th. If your student does not submit his or her course selections, the high school counselors will choose classes for your student. We want all of our students to have a wonderful transition to high school so please check with them that they submitted their course selections.

Attached is information that was presented to your 8th grade student. If you have questions, information is posted on Ms. Lentz’s and Mrs. Brook’s google classroom page or you can also refer to each high school counseling website:

Cold Weather Reminder from Dr. Dignan

Greetings Wayne-Westland Students, Staff and Families,

This week we are seeing some of the coldest temperatures of the winter season. Tomorrow’s low will hover near 0°. We know that winter weather can take a toll on school attendance. Snow, ice and rain can make it hard to get children to school. So can illnesses such as colds, flu, fevers, earaches, etc. Here is some information that can help keep your children healthy and in school this winter.

Develop backup plans for getting your children to school. Can someone give them a ride to school if your child usually walks or stands at a bus stop?

Dress for the weather. Even a short walk in frigid weather can be dangerous. Ensure your child has a warm coat, gloves, hats and boots. Elementary students will also go out for recess if the temperatures are above 20°. Remind older children that a hoodie is not an outdoor coat.

Resources are available. If you need help with winter clothing, please contact your child’s school for assistance.

Sick children should stay home. Attendance at school is important but sick children should not be at school. Also, if your child becomes ill during the school day, have a backup plan for who can pick them up if you are not available.

If your children need to stay home for a prolonged period due to illness, talk to your child’s teacher to find out about resources and class assignments, they can do at home to keep learning once they feel well enough.

Thank you for partnering with us.


John Dignan, Ed.D.
