From the principal's office...

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving break; even during the middle of a pandemic, we have things to be thankful for!


You may not be thankful that we are going fully remote this week, but we are here to help! This decision was made mainly due to staff shortages around the district. The spread of COVID within the building is still mostly contained. Staff will be working in the building this week, and teachers are available to help anytime between 7:45 and 3:15 via phone call, email, or messages through Seesaw/Google Classroom.


The district has created a schedule for learning this week; teachers will only be posting content from these areas each day instead of all subjects every day. Here's the schedule:

Monday- math, Tuesday- reading, Wednesday- ELD/specials/writing, Thursday- social studies/science, Friday- social/emotional.


Monday's math work will be posted by 11:00 am; work for other days will be available first thing each morning.


If you would like to pick up meals here at Westwood between 11:30-12:30 Monday and Thursday, be sure you've completed this form by Monday at 9:00 am.


Some grade levels chose not to send chargers home before Thanksgiving; for those who did not receive them, you can come by school anytime starting at 10:00 am Monday to pick up your child's charger. Pick up times are between 10:00-4:00 Monday or 8:00-4:00 the rest of the week.


Teachers will be offering some times to zoom Tues-Fri. in order to provide personalized support.


We will get through this together!


Love,

Mrs. Crumby (your proud principal)

Box Tops are now digital!

Here's an easy way to help raise money for our school. You can download the box tops app, put in our zip code, choose our school, and scan your receipt when you have purchased a box top item. There are still physical box tops on packages you can clip and send, but those are being phased out. Thanks in advance for helping!

Camp War Eagle

CWE is a sports and adventure camp on Beaver Lake. They have both overnight camps on Beaver Lake and day camps in Rogers and Springdale. I (Mrs. Crumby) am an ambassador for CWE; I agreed to do this after my son went this past summer and had a wonderful time. The window for early applications is now open through Dec. 15th, and I would encourage you to consider this opportunity for your kids ages 7-17. There is a sliding scale for tuition, so it can be very affordable. Visit campwareagle.org for more information, and let me know if I can help.
