October PBIS Celebration
As part of our PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) program students from West Elementary celebrated their good behavior by participating in a special event this week. Students were involved in a variety of fun activities. Students created Fall craft projects to share with Homestead and Care Initiatives residents, frosted cookies for a tasty snack, colored cards for veterans, participated in a turkey trot, danced at a dance party, and played relay games in the gym. Thank you to our Reading Room teachers for organizing this event and to our parent volunteers.
2nd Graders and FFA PALS
Winter Music Programs
We are getting closer to the winter programs for this year. The students have been working very hard to prepare. Please save the following dates and come see what they have been preparing for you. Programs will take place in the Knoxville Performing Arts Center. Due to props being used this year, I am recommending that Kinder Prep/Kindergarten students wear something with pockets or loose fitting long sleeves. I am also recommending that First and Second grade students wear something with pockets.
- Kinder Prep/Kindergarten- Nov 26 @ 7:00 (Students should arrive after 6:30)
- First Grade- Dec 3 @ 7:00 (Students should arrive after 6:30)
- Second Grade- Dec 11 @ 7:00 (Students should arrive after 6:30)
Please be watching for more information, as we get closer to the dates.

MAP testing has come to an end at the middle school and I want to take some time to thank all the people that helped to accomplish this task. MAP stands for Measure of Academic Progress, and the students take this test twice a year to measure their growth on skills being taught. It is a computer-based assessment, but we require a lot of assistance to get all the students tested. Some students need special accommodations when testing. Some of these accommodations require someone to be with them either to prompt them or to read to them when applicable. This is not an easy task. We had a number of volunteers help use this year, and we could not have completed the testing without them. We at the middle school want to thank each and every volunteer in the community who took time out of their schedules to come to help us. I don’t think words can express how truly grateful we are for your help.
