Re-Registration for all Students in Grades 5, 8 and 10
In order to ensure that all students attending the Wayne Township Public Schools are residents of Wayne, we will once again be requiring the re-registration of students at certain grade levels.  Parents of students at three grade levels (fifth grade going into sixth grade, eighth grade going into ninth grade and tenth grade going into eleventh grade) will be required to re-register their children in the coming months at their child’s current school. 
For example, if you have a child currently in eighth grade at George Washington Middle School, you should report to George Washington Middle School to re-register your child. This process has been streamlined, and it is not a full re-registration, but rather a document review that should take approximately five minutes. 
The re-registration will start at the beginning of April.  All registration documents must be provided to your child’s school by the last day of school in June. Parents of currently enrolled students in grades five, eight and ten will be receiving a letter from your child’s school in the coming weeks with information about how to re-register your student.
Wayne Valley's Student Culinary Competition
Congratulations to all of our Wayne Valley future chefs for another strong performance in the annual Wayne Valley Student Culinary Competition.  A special thanks to Sodexo Food Services for their sponsorship of the event.

In addition to showcasing our students, the competition “served” another great purpose.  The Wayne Valley Student Culinary Competition raised $2,084.75 for the AgnesHoerner/Ed Grobe scholarship for Consumer Sciences. We had over 300 parents and students in attendance that made it out in the cold to see and taste the student creations, then vote for their favorite. Please click here for more information.

Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser
A.P.Terhune students recently participated in the Jump Rope For Heart fundraiser. This fundraiser promotes physical education, teaches children about heart health, and raises funds for cardiovascular disease and stroke research.
During  Physical Education classes, students learned about and participated in activities that relate to different types of fitness, including cardio-respiratory fitness and muscular strength and endurance.  Students learned that all of these activities can help us keep our heart healthy, along with making smart food choices and drinking lots of water!
Our school goal this year was to raise $5,000. We are proud to share that we surpassed our goal and raised $7,462! 
Congratulations to Ms. Zygmunt for organizing such a successful and meaningful event! Many thanks to all of the students, families and staff that donated and supported the Jump Rope For Heart fundraiser. It means a lot that as a community we are able to help those in need!
