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.

More Made in Michigan turkey on the way

WYOMING (WZZM) - There's a good chance the turkey on your sandwich is a product of the company, Michigan Turkey Producers.

Now, the Wyoming plant is expanding, and the $10 million project may include a deal with a restaurant chain.

The goal is to increase capacity from 45 million pounds of turkey a year to 60 million.

The expansion will add at least 35 new jobs by the first of the year.

Wyoming Park graduates help district start anew

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)-This fall, two Wyoming schools will consolidate under one name, mascot and logo.

Wyoming Park High School is being transformed into Wyoming Junior High School and Rogers High School will become the district's only high school, serving 10th grade through 12th grade.

Saturday night, two graduates of Wyoming Park High School did their part to help the district start anew, by selling off old school memorabilia.

"When we found out the schools were combining, we wanted to do something that brought Wyoming together. That's why [this event is] called Unite Wyoming," explained co-organizer Jonathan Vitale Saturday.

"As a Park grad, I'm going to miss the tradition, but as far as the two schools coming together, I think it's good for the community," added co-organizer Steven Varnes.
