Lumberjacks Visit (FEBRUARY)

This is Wesley School's second year participating in the Lumberjacks Reading Caravan.  It is funded by donations and a 50/50 raffle, sold at the hockey games.  Twice each year, two Muskegon Lumberjack USHL Hockey players visit our school to read and interact with our students in their classrooms.  Our students win prizes for reading and love the visits from the Lumberjacks hockey players!

Wesley School continues to implement Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS)

Be a Star Program

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.
