Parent Project Welcome 4th to 5th
Parents of Fourth Graders are invited to attend a Project Welcome Parent Night at Central School on Tuesday, May 24th at 6:30 pm.
4th Grade Clap Out
We are sending our 4th Grade Westies out in style. Please join us Wednesday, June 8th at 3:10 pm in front of West School. We will clap for our 4th grade and then enjoy an ice cream treat, from the PTO, on the playground. Click HERE for more information.
Smart Watches are becoming distracting in the classroom for our Westies. If your child wears one to school, we will be asking them to take it off and leave it in their backpack for the day. Thank you for your cooperation.
Library Book Return
It is time to return library books! All library books and materials should be returned ASAP. Notices will be going home to those who have missing library books. Thank you for your support.
West for the WIN!
This year West School launched WIN Time. WIN stands for “What I Need”, and it is a designated time for just that! Every student is engaged in 30 minutes per day of WIN Time. On Thursday and Friday, students move around the building and engage in different class options with West school staff members. The options for Q4 include Zen Westies (Yoga), Sign Language, Art History, Nature Walks, and more. The halls are buzzing with excitement as students prepare for their WIN Time groups. We invite you to partner with us by asking your child questions about their new Thursday & Friday WIN Time group.
Carline & Coffee
We are excited to introduce CARLINE & COFFEE as a monthly opportunity to volunteer and learn more about West School.
Once a month, we will welcome parents to volunteer during student arrival (8:30 AM) and then enter the building for coffee and conversation. Please follow the LINK to volunteer for CARLINE & COFFEE. Please pick ONE slot to allow us to share this experience with many parents.
The agenda for our session will include volunteering followed by coffee and a building tour. Our last 2022 CARLINE & COFFEE session is May 18. Please call the office with any questions. I look forward to seeing you for CARLINE & COFFEE.
West Absence Reporting
If your child will be absent from school, please report the absence with this FORM before 9:15 AM. You will be asked to share the date and reason for the absence. This information will be shared directly with Nurse Balling for attendance and follow-up purposes. In addition to this email, the online form can be found on the front of our West School website and under the Parent Resources tab.
Car Line Reminders
Please see the important information below with reminders about our car line.
Please enter the car line from Forestway Drive by turning west on Apple Tree Lane and then north (right) on Cherry Tree, and then east (right) onto Willow Tree Lane.
Students exit and enter your vehicle from the driver’s side of the car, closest to the curb.
Please be mindful of our neighbors living along the car line on Apple Tree Lane and Cherry Tree Lane. Avoid blocking driveways along the car line route as you wait for the line to move forward.
Be mindful of children crossing at the intersections as they walk/bike to school in the morning, or home in the afternoon
Please follow the instructions of the car line staff. Follow the car in front of you and pull all the way up to the front of the carline
Stopping short slows down the entire car line process.
Above all, please remain patient when waiting to pick up children. Safety is first.
Welcome to West
It is my pleasure to officially welcome you and your family to West School! I am honored to work with our staff, students, and families to support our growing learners. I look forward to partnering with you in the education of your child.
