Mr. Hoekstra began his role as Superintendent on July 1, 2018 following the retirement of long time WPS Superintendent, Dr. Thomas Reeder.  Mr. Hoekstra has spent 27 years in Wyoming Public Schools, first as a student, then a custodian, teacher, principal, and most recently, has served as the WPS Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Services (2015-2018).  He also spent three years at Hamilton Community Schools as Principal and Director of Instruction before returning to Wyoming Public Schools in 2012.

 

Mr. Hoekstra obtained his Master of the Arts degree in Educational Leadership and his Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University.  He also holds a Michigan School Administrator Certificate in Elementary & Secondary Admin K-12 as well as a Professional Education Certificate.

“I am very excited to lead this great school district. A district that I hold dearly as a proud graduate,” noted Hoekstra.  “I am looking forward to working with staff, administrators and members of the community to build on what we have established in Wyoming as we continue to provide meaningful and memorable experiences for everyone in the organization. I appreciate the Board of Education’s confidence in me and for Dr. Reeder’s strong leadership which has resulted in many accomplishments and a solid foundation to position the district for future success,” Hoekstra said.

 

Mr. Hoekstra, a lifelong west Michigan resident, and his wife, Johanna, have three (3) children.

Wyoming Intermediate Team 21 students worked hard yesterday to beautify their garden as well as repair garden boxes. Students used hammer, nails, handsaws and drills with refurbished wood. They then finish coated the decoupage art from last week and added pieces to their garden. They also enjoyed nature framed art created with flowers and leaves from their surroundings. We finished the day with lemonade flavored with watermelon slices and fresh peppermint. 🌳🌻🌺🌿

Students from the Gladiola Team 21 program learned the waggle dance to discover where the honey sticks were hidden. Three scouts were sent out to find the honey, come back to the hive and waggle dance their groups to the sweet treat.
Students then decorated a bee box that will soon be filled with bees at Brad Cloutier’s homestead. We appreciate Brad taking time from his work schedule to share his skill.
A shout out to his employer, The BUNN Company. Their Community Outreach program encourages employees to become involved in volunteer philanthropic efforts.
Thank you Michigan Beekeepers’ Association for the honey stick donations. The students loved their sweet treat. 🐝💜🐝💜
