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!

Our IB learner profile attribute when we return in person is "quality producer".
As an IB (International Baccalaureate) school, one of our goals is to see our students grow into well-rounded people. One way we work towards this is to focus on a learner profile- this profile includes 10 attributes we believe our students should have. We will focus on one each week here at the beginning of school and integrate all of them into our daily practices. Can you find ways to encourage your child to be a quality producer and notice when he or she is? We would love to hear about any learner profile moments you have- email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
