Mrs. Michels Weekly Updates
Let's make it a great week!
Hello Hamilton Families,
October 30-November 3
Here we are at Halloween already, the year is really going fast!
Thanks everyone for coming out to the skate night, it was a great turn out and the costumes were wonderful! Zachary and Harper were our winners! Congratulations.
Tuesday we will have our annual Halloween parade. Families are welcome to come and watch the parade. Walking in the parade is only for students and staff. If it is bad weather we will parade inside and families will be able to sit in the cafeteria and watch as students parade across the stage. If it is outside we will have a few designated areas where you can watch. Please remember that all costumes need to be school appropriate.
- Please remember that if you are getting out of your car, you MUST be pulled into a parking spot regardless of how long you are out of your car.
- Please remember that there is no smoking or vaping on school property, even in your car.
- Tomorrow your child will bring home a progress report. Please take a minute to go over it with your child. Celebrate the successes and make a plan to work together on the areas of weakness. Reach out to your child's teacher with any additional questions.
- Picture retakes day are November 16

Regular attendance is crucial for your child's academic success. Please make every effort to ensure your child attends school on time every day and stays throughout the whole day. Consistent attendance throughout the school day allows your child to engage in learning and maximize their educational opportunities fully.
Illness: If your child is not feeling well and cannot attend school, please notify us immediately. Students who are ill should not attend school to prevent the spread of illness to others.
Excused Absences: We understand that there may be instances when your child needs to be absent due to illness, medical appointments, family emergencies, or other legitimate reasons. Please notify the school in advance whenever possible to classify the absence as excused.
Unexcused Absences: Unexcused absences negatively impact your child's education. Absences without valid reasons will be considered unexcused, and appropriate actions may be taken per district policy.
Timely reporting of absences helps us maintain accurate attendance records and ensures that your child's absence is properly documented. Absences must be reported within 24 hours.
There are two convenient methods for reporting your child's absence to facilitate efficient communication and accurate attendance records.
You can notify your child's school through the dedicated attendance line. Please leave a detailed message stating your child's name, grade, and reason for absence.
You can report absences directly through MiStar, our secure online portal for student information. MiStar provides a user-friendly interface that allows you to submit absences.
Thank you for your ongoing support in creating a positive and productive learning environment for all our students.
You can also follow the Wayne Westland Community School page on Facebook for updates and information too!
Thank you for your continued support!
Make it a great week!
