Saturday’s Wyoming High School commencement ceremony will be livestreamed on Wyoming City Schools YouTube Channel

Onsite seating reserved for guests of the members of the Class of 2021

We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2021 this Saturday, May 29, on Graduation Walk at Wyoming High School. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony may be pushed to later in the day, if necessary.

In alignment with Ohio Department of Health Guidance for Graduation Ceremonies, our graduating seniors will be seated with three feet of social distance and guest seating will be set in pods of six chairs with six feet of distance between each pod. Due to the increased space needed for the ceremony, chairs are only available to families and guests of the members of the graduating class with each graduating senior having access to one pod of six chairs. 

Due to our inability to welcome all onto campus at this time, the Wyoming High School Class of 2021 Commencement Ceremony will be livestreamed to the Wyoming City Schools YouTube Channel. We kindly ask that those who are not invited guests of graduating seniors tune in to the livestream of the ceremony and allow guests of the Class of 2021 the use of onsite seating.

Thank you for your understanding and congratulations to the Wyoming High School Class of 2021!

Wheel-A-Thon Needs Volunteers!

Wyoming PSA is trying to make Wheel-A-Thon happen this year and make it even bigger and better! We’re moving it down to the Village and adding the ability for older children and adults to register to walk. Those registered will be entered into a raffle to win a gift card! More details to come but the event is planned for 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, June 26.

Wheel-A-Thon takes lots of work to put together and we need lots of volunteers the day of the event! We need to determine if we can get the volunteers before we commit to hosting it. Will you give a couple hours of your time to help us run this fun event? If so, please sign up through the link below. We are trying to see if we can get most of our volunteers by the end of this week so we know we can pull it off. Have questions? Email Cori Besse at cori.funk@gmail.com.

A message from PSA regarding May Fete Fundraiser:

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we regret to inform everyone that the May Fete Fundraiser is canceled again this year.  

May Fete requires a minimum of 5 months planning and over 300 volunteers for a successful event during a TYPICAL non-covid year. Shifting conditions and changing government mandates  made this planning process impossible within this timeline.

Additionally, our ride vendor is unable to enforce the current government mandates that would allow an event of this magnitude to occur. This responsibility would then fall on parent volunteers, which is an unrealistic and unfair expectation that makes volunteering for a fun community event an unpleasant and unwelcome experience.  

We cannot wait until we can resume this beloved tradition in 2022.

In the meantime, we will be putting together something fun in lieu of May Fete, so stay tuned for more information.  If you have any questions please email me at wpsa.president@gmail.com.
