WMHS Student Weekly Information
February 6 - February 10
From the Principal's Desk
What an amazing RivalZ Week last week! It was my first time experiencing the RivalZ Week. I was pumped up by our pride and participation! Well done Zebra Nation! Thank you to the Student Senate, Staff, and all of our Students for showing your Wayne Pride and Spirit all week long!
I had the privilege of attending my first Champions Banquet last this past week. I was so impressed and PROUD of the over 100 Zebra’s that participated in the Program AND met their goal to earn a $200 check! That’s right $200 for doing well at school! WOW! EVERY Zebra should be doing this! You need to get in on this program right now. See our Champions Leaders in Room 249 for guidance on how to sign up. Do it asap. Get signed up, use it as motivation, go rock it out, and get paid.
Our WMHS AP Parent Night Meeting has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Feb.8th. The meeting will take place from 6-7pm in our Lecture Hall.
COUNT DAY is this Wednesday! Our student count = funding from the State = programming at WMHS! PLEASE make sure that you are at school on Count Day! This is very, very important!

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 (email@example.com) and Ra-Mon Watkins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
