On Thursday afternoon Wyoming High School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the opening of the new Wyoming High School.  This is a significant event for our community and invite you all to join with us to recognize this milestone.  Over the summer months, Wyoming School district staff has done a tremendous job in preparing our facilities, staff and students for this transition and new beginning.  As a result, I believe Wyoming Public Schools will be stronger academically and athletically, able to instill much new pride in not only the school but also the entire Wyoming community.

My congratulations go out to Superintendent Tom Reeder and his staff for the outstanding job they have done in preparing and implementing this consolidation plan.  As a community, we should all be proud of their work and dedication.

Wyoming Wolves win debut football game

Wyoming Wolves win debut football game

WYOMING, MI (WZZM) - For the first time in decades, high school football fans in Wyoming are united.

This year Park and Rogers high schools are merged into one building that's now simply called Wyoming High School.

"We are one," says parent Lisa Gerner. "We are the Wyoming Wolves. We are one."

The new Wyoming Wolves played their first football game Thursday night at what was Rogers High School on Prairie Parkway SW.

Fans were excited to see the team perform.

"Now we don't have two small teams -- we have one big strong team," enthused parent Sherri Wosova.

But the merger has been a difficult adjustment for some in the community. The Rogers Golden Hawks and the Park Vikings were always bitter rivals.

"It's always Park doesn't like Rogers, Rogers doesn't like Park," explained Rogers graduate Brad Savin. "We never liked each other ever."

The Golden Hawks and the Vikings are now together in the same building under a new name.

Dear Wyoming Public School Parents and Community Families,

As this school year begins, I want to thank you for the support I have received as I completed my first year as Superintendent. It was both exciting and challenging, but with your support and the great staff and students we have, it was very rewarding. I have learned a great deal and most importantly, understand there is room to improve not only with my performance, but our district as a whole. Producing high academic achievement and offering quality opportunities in a safe and nurturing environment will be our focus at all times.
