A NOTE FROM MRS. KLEIN

Wyoming Middle School Families,

As we come to the end of this challenging school year, I would like to take a few moments to say thank you to our students and families. Thank you for your support to our staff throughout the year.

The pandemic has affected all of us in every aspect of our daily lives. Our students and families faced this COVID year with courage and resilience. I am grateful for that strength.

I would like to express my thanks to our middle school families. Whether it was organizing a team of volunteers to support our snack bar, teacher appreciation, or the end of the year student experiences our community was there in our time of need. As it always is. I am thankful for the way the Wyoming community responded.

 Enjoy your time with friends and family and we welcome you back in August.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Klein

Commencement of the WHS Class of 2021

Saturday’s Wyoming High School commencement ceremony will be livestreamed on Wyoming City Schools YouTube Channel

Onsite seating reserved for guests of the members of the Class of 2021

We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2021 this Saturday, May 29, on Graduation Walk at Wyoming High School. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony may be pushed to later in the day, if necessary.

In alignment with Ohio Department of Health Guidance for Graduation Ceremonies, our graduating seniors will be seated with three feet of social distance and guest seating will be set in pods of six chairs with six feet of distance between each pod. Due to the increased space needed for the ceremony, chairs are only available to families and guests of the members of the graduating class with each graduating senior having access to one pod of six chairs. 

Due to our inability to welcome all onto campus at this time, the Wyoming High School Class of 2021 Commencement Ceremony will be livestreamed to the Wyoming City Schools YouTube Channel. We kindly ask that those who are not invited guests of graduating seniors tune in to the livestream of the ceremony and allow guests of the Class of 2021 the use of onsite seating.

Thank you for your understanding and congratulations to the Wyoming High School Class of 2021!

Wheel-A-Thon Needs Volunteers!

Wyoming PSA is trying to make Wheel-A-Thon happen this year and make it even bigger and better!  We’re moving it down to the Village and adding the ability for older children and adults to register to walk.  Those registered will be entered into a raffle to win a gift card!  More details to come but the event is planned for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, June 26th.  

Wheel-A-Thon takes lots of work to put together and we need lots of volunteers the day of the event!  We need to determine if we can get the volunteers before we commit to hosting it.  Will you give a couple hours of your time to help us run this fun event?  If so, please sign up through the link below.  We are trying to see if we can get most of our volunteers by the end of this week so we know we can pull it off.  Have questions? Email Cori Besse at cori.funk@gmail.com.

CHANGE OF PLANS FOR 6TH GRADE VISIT TO WYOMING REC CENTER

Dear sixth grade families,
We want to make sure that our sixth graders have a successful day at the pool. Wednesday’s forecast calls for scattered showers and then scattered thunderstorms throughout the whole time we would be there.
Because of this, we have changed the sixth grade day to the pool toThursday, rather than tomorrow. We are sorry for the last minute change, but we needed to wait for confirmation that we could get enough lifeguards before making the decision. 


Thanks,

Sixth Grade Team
