WPS Prepare for Changes, Opportunities

From: http://www.wyoming.k12.mi.us

A great big THANK YOU to the Wyoming Community and especially the neighbors, parents and students who were deeply involved during the many discussions related to changing the district.

This has been an emotionally-challenging time and will continue to be as we move forward. At the same time, there are new opportunities on the horizon and possibilities to significantly improve ourselves.

Wyoming Public Schools will no longer look the same; however we must provide even better educational and co-curricular programs for our students if they are going to compete in a world far different than the past 50 years.

Kent District Library offering a deal on Overdue Books

The Kent District Library is offering a deal to people who are hoarding overdue books at home, in fear of having to pay that dreaded fee upon return.

For the week of May 7-13, the library is offering KDL cardholders the opportunity to return overdue books at no charge, but there are stipulations.

Cardholders of the KDL may visit any library branch, check in, and for every 10 minutes you spend in the library either listening or reading, you will be credited $1.00 toward your fine with a max of $10.00.

Check out those drawers, shelves and closets for books you may have overlooked and get them back to the library.

Wyoming Schools explain policy against bullying

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)- Wyoming Public School leaders outlined the district's new policy to protect students from bullying Monday night.

In December, Gov. Rick Snyder signed a law giving school districts six months to put such policies in place. Monday's public hearing outlined how district employees will enforce the zero-tolerance policy against physical, verbal and psychological bullying. They will encourage victims to report harassment more quickly and investigate and punish offenders.

One teacher, who was the victim of bullying, says the policy will make a difference.

"I grew up in a small Christian school. I was bullied for all four years going to the school, and really never wanted to go to school It's part of the reason I went into education so that I could try and help create a safer, more inclusive, loving environment for my students," said teacher Jeremy Schnotala.
