After successful restaurant nights with McDuffs and the Wayland Hotel, we are continuing to partner with area restaurants to fundraise. This month we will be partnering with Curly Cone on October 20th 5-9pm. The Wayland Grad Bash Fund will receive a 10% donation on all food purchased that night as long as you mention Grad Bash when ordering!


Currently, we have Enza’s Pizza in Dorr planned for our November restaurant night. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to that date.

Senior Treats

Senior treat day is Wayland Union tradition and September was a huge hit! A big thanks to our September parents for helping out. For those that are new to Wayland or this is your first time having a Senior, the parents prepare snacks once a month and distribute them to the Senior class during lunch times. If you would like to sign up to help distribute the snacks please sign-up here. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Monica Dehaan at dehaanclan99@gmail.com or 269-209-9549.

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.


Next Grad Bash Meeting

Mark your calendars and join us on November 10th at 7pm @ the Pine Street Elementary Media Center for our next Grad Bash meeting. All are welcome to join to ask questions, get updates on planning and learn more on how to get involved!
