Over 100 current students, as well as Wesley alumni attended the prom, "London Calling" on Thursday, June 11th from 6:30-8:30pm. The Wesley gym was transformed into downtown London, complete with an 15-foot tall moving ferris wheel with lights.
Classrooms took trips to Grand Rapids to view our Room 11 student's exhibit at Art Prize in Grand Rapids. The exhibit, "In Flight for Life" was on display at Vertigo Music in downtown Grand Rapids. This beautiful artwork is now on display in the front office at Wesley School.
Student artwork is being displayed on a Muskegon Area Transit System (MATS) city bus! Artwork was selected from the "This is my Community" art contest held earlier in the year. Keep a look-out for the beautiful city bus around town!
Wesley students continue to enjoy spending time in the Look, Listen & Learn Center. In addition to a large variety of books and curriculum resources, the library also has several pieces of sensory equipment to make the learning experience even more fun and interesting! Students enjoy sitting on the fiber optic carpet or in the moon chair with a favorite book. Soothing lights from the bubble tube create a calming atmosphere.
This year, adult students participating in Wesley School Transition programs will be working in the Look, Listen & Learn Center. Transition students will be running the circulation desk, checking books in and out, restocking materials, and helping to keep the library in top shape for all our students to enjoy!
Wesley's PBIS Program features a STAR acronym as the foundation for expected behaviors. The focus is on safety, responsibility, doing your best, and respect. Students can become Wesley STARs and have their name placed outside of the principal’s office by meeting STAR expectations. Expectations for appropriate behavior in all areas of the school are taught to every student during "Expectation Week."
During PBIS Expectation Week, students learn and practice behavioral expectations throughout the building. This fun & educational week culminates in an all-school assembly & dance at the end of the week.
