Aiming to Keep You Informed

August 23, 2019

From the Office

We have had a fabulous 3 days together this week!!

THANK YOU parents and guardians for all of the behind the scenes work you did, from completing registration and medical forms & visiting us on Information Day, to purchasing school supplies, making lunches, and encouraging your children to come back to school with a positive attitude! All of that preparation and hard work from you & your children definitely paid off and led to a very successful start to the new school year!

We saw so many smiling faces on Wednesday and we have had a blast catching up with students from last year and meeting new students this week! Students have put forth a tremendous amount of effort learning new routines & procedures, organizing their lockers & supplies, and getting to know their teachers & classmates. You should all feel very proud of your children!

Curriculum Night - September 5th, 6:30 - 8:00pm

We would like to invite all parents & guardians to attend Curriculum Night on September 5th, at 6:30pm. Curriculum Night is an opportunity to walk your child's schedule, briefly visit each of your child's classes, and meet their teachers. Each period is only 8 minutes long, with a 4 minute passing period, so unfortunately there is not enough time to conference with teachers that evening. However, at any time during the year, feel free to reach out to your child's teacher or team leader to schedule an individual or group conference with our staff.

Back-to-School Bash

Next Friday, August 30th, our students and staff will participate in the PTO sponsored Back-to-School Bash from 1:40 - 3:30pm. This event is for students and staff only and there is no cost for students to attend or to participate in any of the activities. The event is supervised by our Westfield staff and open to all Westfield students. PTO volunteers will be assisting with games, activities and providing concessions. The Back-to-School Bash takes place at Westfield and dismissal from school will be at the normal time of 3:30pm.

PTO Fundraiser

If you have not had a chance to participate in the PTO Fall "UnFundraiser", please consider doing so. We appreciate the amazing support we receive from our PTO parents!

Have a wonderful weekend!
