New Enrollment Age Information
Beginning with the 2015-16 school year, a child who resides in the school district may enroll in kindergarten if the child is at least 5 years of age on September 1 of the school year of enrollment. If a child does not meet the minimum age requirement, but will be 5 years of age not later than December 1 of that school year, the district may enroll the child for that school year if the parent or legal guardian has notified the district in writing that he or she intends to enroll the child in kindergarten for that school year.
Kindergarten enrollment packets are now available at all five elementary schools. We look forward to welcoming our youngest students into the Woodhaven-Brownstown School District for the 2015-16 school year.

          WBEF grant recipient
WHS Girls' Basketball coach, Rodney Scharboneau is pictured with WBSD Athletic Director, Dave Fast, after receiving his grant for the "WHS Girls' Basketball Charity." In his grant application, Coach Scharboneau stated, "Each season, the players and coaches from our WHS girls basketball team volunteer their time to travel to an elementary school in the inner city of Detroit to provide a free basketball camp to the kids at the school. If we were granted this money, we would use it to purchase t-shirts and basketballs for the kids and bring the items when we come to run the camp. That would be a first for many of the kids who attend - to get a new t-shirt and have a few new basketballs to play with in their gym. I get excited just writing about it!" The camp is usually held in early November.
