February is here (Wednesday is 2/1/23)! The 3rd Quarter is moving right along! It is crucial that you are IN school everyday, attending every class, and staying IN class in order for you to stay on top of your academic studies. Not attending school and/or missing classes will only put you behind.... You got this! We got you!

Our extra-curriculars at WMHS continue to shine! I am SO PROUD of this! Our music program recently participated in the 2023 District Solo and Ensemble festival. They had amazing results, with students earning Division 1 and Division 2 ratings. Great performances Zebra's! Well done!

RivalZ Week is here! See the information below for everything that is RivalZ Week! Most importantly - fully participate, have fun, and make sure to have pride, discipline, and class all week long and at the games on Friday. #WaynePride #BeatGlenn

Cool Classrooms

This Geometry class does an amazing job honoring students' learning styles. The students are able to choose to work independently or cooperatively on lessons. One day each week students engage in station work based on feedback they've given to the teachers on topics they feel are areas of weaknesses . What a wonderful opportunity for students to take ownership of their learning.

Unified Basketball

The United Sports program is a co-ed sports based program that includes programs for all students, with and without disabilities. Wayne Westland has organized a basketball team for the Winter season that continues through the end of February with a KLAA Unified Tournament.

Our goal is to show that no matter the needs, abilities or disabilities of our

students, we can all come together as one Unified team.

We Need Help: We could use additional "student coaches" to get involved. These student coaches would assist the Special Olympians on the court, grabbing a rebound or two, passing the ball, helping to direct players regarding placement etc. The student coaches don't try to score, instead passing to open players. If you are interested, please contact the coaches for our program, Larry Lyman (lymanl@wwcsd.net) and Ra-Mon Watkins (watkinsr@wwcsd.net).

If you would like to support the Wayne Westland Unified team by cheering them on at a game, see the attached schedule below.
