SEPTEMBER 2014

Welcome Back, Students!

Can you hear that?

It’s the sound of shoes squeaking against the newly polished floors; it’s the sound of loud chatter as students reminisce of their summertime fun; it’s the sound of teachers learning to pronounce the names of their newest class members; it’s Mrs. Barrett or Mr. Morgan saying the afternoon announcements over the intercom; it’s the trees of West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science’s campus, blowing wind smelling of apples and peaches.

All the smells, sounds, and new and old faces remind us that it’s back-to-school. It’s back to friends, learning, gardening, open classroom windows, and walks in the woods. Embrace the first day of school. Let it soak in. This is the start to a brand new year. This is the start to your future as students, and as citizens. What do you plan to make of the first day of school?

 

Parents, Thank You!

Parents, it’s not only back-to-school for your children, it’s also back-to-school for you!

Thank you for making the effort to bring your child to school everyday on time. Thank you for filling their backpacks with school supplies, helpful notes, healthy snacks, and that extra sweater just in case. Thank you for keeping your student on track throughout the year, assisting with homework, reviewing reports, and reminding them to take a deep breath. Well parents, take a deep breath for yourself. You’re children will be safe and sound with all of us at WMAES.

 

Parking Lot Navigation

On the first day of school, feel free to park and walk your student in. Our educators enjoy seeing parent faces, and your children feel more comfortable if you accompany them on their walk to class.

Teachers will be standing at the building entrances to help direct you, should you have any questions. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need assistance.

With it being Back-to-School time, it’s also back to parking lot etiquette.

At dismissal, please plan on walking to get your child from his or her teacher (if they are in elementary). If your child will be leaving with a sibling in grades 6-12 grade, please write a note for the teacher on the first day.

 

20th Anniversary Fun

Thank you to all the parents and families who came out and supported West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science for our 20th Anniversary.

Mayor Huizenga and State Representative Rob VerHeulen were in attendance at our Groundbreaking Ceremony.

There was an overwhelming number of families present at this year’s Groundbreaking Ceremony & Pig Roast. Thank you to all who were able to attend, meet this year’s teachers, and celebrate WMAES’ 20th Anniversary.
