Mid March Updates From WHMS!

Despite March being a shorter month with Spring Break, there’s lots happening for the Wolfpack! Please take a few minutes to read about the upcoming events for our students and parents.

High School Transition… an Update

In a previous post about the High School transition I mentioned that the High School grade level coordinators would be coming to Woodhaven to help our kids complete their online registration for high school classes. This will be happening on April 10th in our school library. Course recommendations will be sent home with your child on this upcoming Friday, March 16th.

Report Cards 

As term 2 comes to a close, Report Cards will be available on your child’s Powerschool account this Friday, March 16th at 3 p.m. If you are unsure how to access your child’s powerschool account, please call one of our secretaries at the school anytime this week, they will be happy to help you.

Powerschool Verification

You should have received an email from our office encouraging you to either sign up for a Powerschool account on the bottom right corner of our school website or to verify your current account.

It is imperative that we have all parents signed up for our website for several reasons. This subscription allows us to email you with important information such as Hot Lunch, Yearbook, School pictures and various other school related events. In addition, this list will be used for the School Registration & Data Verification process within PSD in the upcoming school year.

Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences

Our second round of Parent/Student/Teacher conferences are being held on Tuesday, March 20th and Wednesday, March 21st from 4-7 p.m. Registration for these conferences is already open. You can learn more on our website.

If you are unable to attend on these dates, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher to make alternate arrangements. We truly appreciate the opportunity to work together with our parents to support our kids!

School Council

Don’t forget that our School Council will be meeting this Thursday, March 15th from 6 – 7 p.m. in our School Library Commons. School Council provides an excellent opportunity to learn about what’s happening at our school and to provide your thoughts. You are able to connect with the PSD Trustees, Administration, Teachers and other parents. Keep an eye on your inbox this week for our agenda.

Woodhaven Middle School Parents’ Association

The Parents’ Association would like to thank all of our parents for your support of our various initiatives throughout the school year. Our most recent fundraising effort was our technology recycling. Not only were we able to help our environment but we raised funds for our school at the same time!

You will soon see our next initiative arriving in your home. We are excited to be offering Little Caesars pizza kits this year! Students will be coming home with order forms in the next few days. You will also have the opportunity to order during our upcoming Parent/Teacher/Student conferences. There will be prizes for the top-selling students and classes as well! All proceeds from our fundraising efforts this year will be going towards our music and fine arts programming!

Until next time,

Mr. S. Patras

Principal, Woodhaven Middle School
