Thank you to OfficeDepot OfficeMax for the reusable bags, notebooks, and supplies for each of our classroom teachers.
A great start on the second Wednesday morning of the school year.
Welcome back, Staff, Students, and Families!
The red carpets were rolled out. The sun was shining. It was First-Day-of-School Eve. Perfect for our school Open House.
Teachers were in their classrooms to welcome students back and to meet their families. Parents asking questions, students seeing classmates (some for the first time since June). Fourth Grade Safety Patrol members received their belts.
The school lobby had displays and volunteers from Girl Scouts, Champions, and your Walker-Winter Parent-Teacher Organization. The PTO had membership forms, upcoming event information, and for the kids - a spin-the-wheel with lots of prizes and a photo frame for back-to-school photo-ops.
First Day of school is tomorrow - half day. Full day on thursday.
Welcome Back, Walker-Winter Dolphins!

We wanted to give our Medical Assisting students and Health Occupation students an opportunity to teach a subject that they learned this year. Teaching helps our students learn and gives them experience for when they are in the industry and have to work with patient education.
For the elementary students, we wanted to expose them to what they can learn in our programs at the WDFCTC and instill some lifelong skills for them such as the first aid stations where the lesson was how to stop a bleed and wrap to stabilize an impaled object also use of an EpiPen for an anaphylactic reaction, how to remove a bee stinger and remove tick.
Other stations were as follows: how the digestive system works, how to remove contaminated gloves, how to diaper and swaddle a baby, the aging process of the body, range of motion to prevent contractures, team building and importance of communication when we did the cup stacking challenge, components of the skeletal system, and taking pulse and finding location of pulse sites.
Ms. Orlando's class and Ms. Landeweer's class teamed up to create "positive graffiti" banners to display throughout Marshall. Our students wanted to promote kindness and positivity throughout our school.
We had our annual Pancake Day at Marshall Upper Elementary! Complete with turkey sausage. Pancakes were served with strawberries and blueberries. We had applesauce cups and hash browns served on the side. Thank you for all who helped up with this event! View all images from this event here.

On Friday June 8, Stevenson Middle School Eighth Graders celebrated their two years at SMS with their Eighth Grade Dance.
The semi-formal event included music by DJ; dancing; photo booth with props; "formal" pictures by a backdrop; pizza, punch, cake; and memories for all.
For some it was just a dance. For others a moment to mark the passing to high school. For a couple, it was a goodbye as they will be going to different high schools than their friends next year.
On June 6 at Stockmeyer Auditorium, Stevenson Middle School recognized 117 7th Grade Students and 112 8th Grade Students.
Awards included Academic Letters, All A's, Presidential Award, Department Awards, National Junior Honor Society, Athletes of the Year, and the Stevenson Award.

On Thursday, May 17 our Construction Tech II students held their Open House at the construction site where they built a brand new home. The house is located at 35042 Hazelwood in Westland. The house is now completed and shows the great work our students have been able to accomplish while working in conjunction with the City of Westland.
We are excited to share that the generous gifts our Early Childhood/Teacher Education students and pre-school students sent to deployed soldiers were enthusiastically received. A wonderful thank you letter and photo of some of the men and women who received the items that were sent were received by Mrs. Vaughan. Once again, kindness speaks volumes, even when miles are between people. Thank you to all who participated and brightened the day for some of our troops who are away from home.
