Project Lead the Way Students at Lavalette Elementary and Vinson Middle School are wrapping up an exciting year learning and growing their STEM skills. LES - Buzz is the Word! To finish off their PLTW: Lifecycles and Survival unit, third graders invited Wayne County beekeeper Travis Kahle to their class. Travis demonstrated a few of the techniques he uses to take care of his bees. The group also talked about the lifecycle of bees. VMS - App Creators! Students in this PLTW program created an app from the ground up. First they determined a problem and then built (designed, coded, and tested) an app to help solve the problem. Students created a variety off apps, including an American Sign Language Study Aid for SVHS students. Earlier this week, students demonstrated to friends and family and county leaders how their app works!

Students receive their high school diplomas and then move onto higher education or enter the workforce...usually. Two Wayne High School Seniors, Clayton McDaniel (right) and Robert Cremeans (left), had something else in mind. The pair have been taking classes at the high school and at Mountwest Community and Technical College. During their time at MountWest, Clayton accumulated 30 hours of college credit and Robert accumulated 40 hours. All before finishing high school! As a result of their hard work, Clayton and Robert recently graduated from Mountwest with a technical certification. Making the two college graduates while still in high school! Congratulations on this tremendous accomplishment! We can't wait to see what you do next.

Starting with the 2024-2025 school year WCS, in partnership with Marshall Health Network and Cabell County Schools, is launching a new CTE program for students called MedEx. The first MedEx class will be made up of students from Wayne High School and Cabell Midland High School. MedEx is a two-year healthcare program that introduces high school students to the Marshall Health Network Program, which is a partnership with school systems, the Education Alliance, and the WVDE. The program also provides opportunities for on-the-job experience. In the last semester of this program, students will be eligible to be compensated while at the hospital. The MedEx program was modeled after a similar manufacturing program that originated with Toyota. In preparation for the program's launch, administrators from Wayne and Cabell Counties toured St. Mary's and Cabell Huntington Hospital to see where students will be working. WHS is hosting a signing day on May 15th for students who are participating in the inaugural year of MedEx!

As part of the CEAS (Civics Empowers All Students) grant, fourth grade students at East Lynn Elementary piloted the We the People program this year. The We the People curriculum aims to incorporate civics and constitutional principles into younger grades to set a foundation of knowledge moving into middle and high school. Using this curriculum this year, students have learned about: 👉 Separation of Powers 👉 Individual Rights 👉 Government Policies and Procedures To wrap up the We the People program, fourth graders participated in simulated congressional hearings. The entire class, working in cooperative teams, prepared and presented statements before a panel of community representatives acting as a congressional committee. Students then answered follow-up questions posed by the committee members and got to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of constitutional principles. Mrs. Ross worked closely with Rebecca Tinder from the Center for Civic Education throughout the year. East Lynn would like to thank the congressional committee that graciously donated their time to empower young students in their civic journey: 👏 Pat Dillon – Retired West Virginia Teacher. 👏 Bruce Perrone - Retired Attorney 👏 Tom Tinder - Retired Attorney East Lynn Students have had an incredible time in this program. Who knows, we might see one (or several) of these students in office one day!

In 2015, Marshall University launched a new program for medical students. The B.S./M.D. program allows students to work on their B.S. and M.D. degrees in just seven years. Traditionally, earning a B.S. and M.D. takes closer to 10 years. Each year, 10 students from West Virginia are chosen to join this program. Joining the program this fall is Ava Coburn from Spring Valley High School! Congratulations, Ava! Earning this spot takes hard work and determination, we know you will do great!

First graders at Lavalette dove into their Scholastic News to learn about the parts of flowers. Students took some time to read about flowers and then they got their hands dirty with a flower planting enrichment activity! Students enjoy being able to see, touch, and feel what they are learning about. Happy planting, LES!
