Restaurant Night Fundraisers

After successful restaurant nights with McDuffs, the Wayland Hotel, and Curly Cone we are continuing to partner with area restaurants to fundraise. This month we partnered with Enza’s on November 9th 4-9pm and now have Open Road Brewery on deck November 16th 4:30-8pm. The Wayland Grad Bash Fund will receive a 10% donation on all food purchased on both of these nights as long as you mention Grad Bash when ordering!


Stay tuned for more details for restaurant nights in the month of December.

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures

1) Yearbook Pictures: Senior photos should be emailed to yearbook@waylandunion.org. Please share only ONE photo to be used in the yearbook. Photos need to be in portrait orientation. The clothing choice needs to follow the school dress code. A simple head and shoulder shot looks best in the yearbook. Please crop photos before submitting. They create square boxes for the portraits to accommodate for portrait orientations. If they need to crop your photo, we cannot guarantee how it will look in the final product. They request that the pictures look professional (i.e. no “Selfies”). If there are financial issues preventing a student from having a senior picture taken, please let us know because we can arrange for a yearbook photographer to take some nice pictures. Photos due are by Friday, December 3, 2021. For questions please contact yearbook@waylandunion.org


2) Grad Bash Video Pictures: please don't forget Christi Atwell is collecting 3-4 pictures of your senior. Any age! Please email them to: wuclassof22@gmail.com with your seniors name.


Senior Salutes

The Wayland yearbook team has announced that Senior Salute space is now available to purchase in the 2022 Wayland Union High School Yearbook. Senior Salutes are spaces for parents, grandparents and friends to honor and recognize their senior with a baby or childhood photo and text. Please review the information below if you are interested.
