Home and School Fundraiser Event

2019-2020 Walk and Roll

On October 4th, Home and School hosted a successful Walk and Roll fundraiser. The event allowed staff, students and guests to enjoy a walk or roll for one hour, on Wesley's new track. Funds raised through this event, provide additional resources for the Home and School parent group to support the efforts and staff of the MAISD Center-Based program.

Curriculum 

Ever wonder what all those EGLCEs or EHSCEs that your child's teacher is always talking about look like?  Extended Grade Level or High School Context Expectations that your child is working on is available at www.mich.gov/md.

Michigan has adopted the Common Core State Standards as benchmarks in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics. Essential Elements to the Common Core State Standards are extensions of the standards to an appropriate level for students at Wesley School. These Common Core Essential Elements will eventually replace the EGLCEs & EHSCEs that your student follows. Stay tuned for updates as we begin transitioning to the Common Core Essential Elements!
