Halloween Costumes

We know several middle school students are looking forward to Halloween and want to dress up on Monday. We will allow our students to wear school appropriate costumes. We will not allow any costume that promotes violence or hate crimes. We will not allow weapons, and masks will not be able to be worn throughout the day.

Report Cards

Today marks the end of quarter one. Student report cards will be available in Parent Connect on November 7, 2022. If you have questions about a grade, please reach out to your child’s teacher.

School-Wide Expectations

We now have a full quarter of school behind us. We need your support in reminding students of our expectations. Please focus on the following:

  • Students are expected to treat others (students and adults) with respect
  • Inappropriate language is not acceptable in the school environment
  • Students need to WALK to class – if your child is running recklessly in the halls after redirection, you will be asked to come and spend the day with him or her in the building to ensure they get from class to class without bumping into others in the hall and causing unnecessary chaos – reckless hallway behavior may result in a suspension
  • There is no reason students should not have enough time get to class as it begins – students have time to go to their locker, use the bathroom if necessary, and still walk to class in plenty of time – there is no reason students should have more than a tardy or two ever in a week
  • Students need to keep their hands off of each other – horseplay is unacceptable

If your child can not follow our expectations, there will be consequences, in addition to a parent meeting with your child, teachers and administration. We will not tolerate the disruption of learning in the building. Thank you for your support with this.

Holiday Assistance

If you need help this holiday, please refer to the list here for options and ways to apply.

8th Grade Career Tech Field Trip

Topics:

  • “Thank You” to the Detroit Red Wings
  • College and Career Readiness Month
  • Administrator Recognition Day (Friday, October 14, 2022)

Family Matters Parent Event

Family Matters Parent Event Western Wayne County Suicide Prevention Coalition has arranged three Family Matters presentations for parents. Keynote speaker Matt Emerzian will share his story. Our families are essential to the growth and well-being of our youth. When we create strong connections and sustain relationships within our families, our youth thrive– emotionally, socially, and academically.

Each presentation is free, and they will be identical. Please note: These mental health presentations are unsuitable for children (babies are fine), and registration is necessary. The event on 11/10 will be held at JGHS. Each presentation is free, and they will be identical. The presentations are spaced throughout our area in Western Wayne County to provide parents with options to best meet their schedules.

8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip

We are excited to announce that we will be taking our 8th grade students to Gettysburg and Washington D.C. with Stevenson and Franklin Middle School.

We have three buses reserved. The trip will be first come, first served. Once we fill one bus, students will be waitlisted to ensure we can fill a second bus. The waitlisted student’s trip will be confirmed once bus two fills. The same process will be in place for bus three. If we can not fill bus two or three, those waitlisted will be refunded. This is why it is very important to reserve your spot as soon as possible. You can do that here.

Please be on the look-out for more fundraising to come soon!

Snap! Connect

Snap Connect is the culmination of years of careful, thoughtful collaboration, passionate advocacy for more inclusive communities, and the ongoing development of a solution to empower families to drive growth and success for their children. While partnering with districts and schools across the country, we have learned about the primary barriers to engagement for families (access, language, and literacy) and have created a flexible mobile/web-based family engagement solution that overcomes each of those barriers. Snap Connect enables districts, schools, and families to build powerful relationships with one another and equitably build inclusive communities.

We have launched this and ask that you be on the lookout for an email invitation to sign up!

Household Information Form Contest – Forms Due Monday!

Wayne-Westland Community Schools will be participating in a new option available to schools as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the school year 2022-2023

We are asking that you fill out and sign the Application for Household Information Report which is located on the Meal Magic Family Portal.   This form is needed for administrative purposes, not to determine eligibility.

We are asking that you please complete and submit it as soon as possible.
