Western Wayne Skill Center
Back by Popular Demand!A few years ago, we implemented a duck program in one of our courtyards at the Western Wayne Skill Center. Our students got to hold the ducks, feed them, provide fresh water, retrieve eggs, change their bedding, etc. It was a great learning opportunity!Due to COVID-19, and the statewide mandatory school shutdown, we gave those ducks to a family near Jackson, Michigan as we were unable to care for them while learning remotely.On October 22, 2021, we acquired 3 new adult ducks. They were purchased from a conservationist in Fenton, Michigan. Students have shown a lot of enthusiasm with the ducks' recent arrival and our feathered friends appear to enjoy their new home! Students in the Horticulture/Culinary Arts classes named the ducks Daisy (brown duck), Pebbles (white duck), and Maggie (black duck). Our ducks are all of different Heritage breeds. One is an Ancona, the other is a Magpie, and we also have one that's a Silver Apple Yard.When they begin laying eggs, which is expected late winter, our students in our culinary programs will use those eggs as they learn more about cooking and baking.If you have any questions related to the ducks, please don't hesitate to ask!!Sincerely,Patrick Mies, Ph.D.PrincipalWestern Wayne Skill CenterLivonia Public Schools

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) consists, in part, of parents who have students receiving special education services within Livonia Public Schools. It is an opportunity to network with other parents, ask questions to one or more LPS special education administrators, and learn strategies to implement at home to help your student academically, socially, and emotionally. We also discuss topics such as support for students and families through agencies, opportunities for socialization, and the like.

2020 WWSC Talent Show and Art Gallery
Each year, the students of the Western Wayne Skill Center take center stage to show off their talents as well as display beautiful pieces of artwork. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our traditional talent show and art gallery. With the help of technology, we were able to make a virtual version of our annual event. We hope you enjoy it! Go Tigers!!
