PRINCIPAL ZIEGLER'S SCHOOL UPDATE

MAY 1, 2020

DEAR WESTVIEW FAMILIES

I hope this letter finds you and your families well and safe. I know these times are difficult for everyone. I recognize that all families are feeling the impact of how abruptly our lives have changed, especially for our students. I recognize the challenges of our current status and are sorry that our students and families are being impacted by the pandemic. There are many questions still left unanswered and we will continue to focus all decisions around student and staff wellness,


I do know that we have a wonderful Westview community and we ARE in this together.


Today, I wanted to share with you some of the wonderful things are school and community are doing for our seniors. The following Instagram accounts recognize our seniors - feel free to follow and celebrate our seniors:

Inspiring Kindness - During COVID-19


Anjali Bose, a Westview sophomore and her Senior Girl Scout Troop desire to reach out and support our local senior citizens who reside in senior living and assisted living communities, and are unable to have visitors during this time. Anjali and her troop hold Zoom meetings with residents at local senior living and assisted living communities, read stories to them, play their instruments in an online recital and play games.


Additionally, as part of their mission, we have established connections with local restaurants and non-profit organizations to help them put together care-packages for our beloved senior citizens. Local businesses have contributed to their cause by donating over 150 face coverings and 175 bottles of hand sanitizers so far! They are putting together care packages which include the hand sanitizer, face covering, as well as tissue packs, and of course a box of girl scout cookies.


Please email me your Inspiring Kindness Acts during COVID - 19.
