Some exciting things are happening at Wayne High School! Below is an excerpt from the article. "Wayne High School’s Pioneer Career Launch Program is expanding, as local solar energy company Solar Holler announced a new apprenticeship program with the school Thursday. Solar Holler, a Wayne County based company, is taking five students this semester to shadow employees and learn the basics of measuring and laying out solar panels on roofs. The students will also learn about connecting panel wiring, ensuring panels are watertight and other tasks." https://www.herald-dispatch.com/news/solar-holler-launches-apprenticeship-program-with-wayne-high-school/article_6acf2d13-f954-5719-adbd-dbdcd1f20d1a.html

Second graders from Buffalo Elementary completed Pumpkin Book Reports. They chose a book, completed a book report, and made a pumpkin to look like a character from their story. They ended this project by presenting it to their class! Wonderful creativity on display from these students!

Wayne Elementary School 5th grade student leadership team members delivered homemade mats, gloves, scarves, and hats to the Harmony House in Huntington. The leadership team made an announcement to the student body asking for donations to help buy the gloves, hats, and scarves. They made signs and posted them throughout the school. They collected a grand total of $300. The mats are made from donated grocery bags that Mrs. Shreve knitted together to make mats for people to sleep on. Mrs. Criswell is the lead teacher of our student leadership team and orchestrated the entire project with the help of the students. WES is so proud of our team and entire student body!❤️🖤
