Back to School Newsletter 2022-23

Important Info for Fall 2022-23 School Year!

Welcome Back, Westy Academy Students and Families!


Welcome back! We truly hope you have had a fantastic summer, and shared some experiences and fun with each other during your time off of school!

With the summer almost behind us, it's time to start thinking about gearing up for a successful start to school! Take a moment to browse through this newsletter, and gather all the important information you will need to begin the year worry-free.

First thing is FIRST!

if you have not completed online registration for your student, make sure to take care of that ASAP! Every student will need to have a registration completed in order to start school come August 15th. This is a yearly formality, and very important to ensuring we have all your personal updated information in our systems.

You can find the steps to complete Online Registration below in the Enrollment section!

Next, be sure to also take care of filling out the Free/Reduced Lunch application for each of your students! Again, this is another necessary formality for all students. Even if you do not qualify for free/reduced lunches, your responses help our school on a whole--allowing for free breakfast for all students, free lunches for students 5th grade and younger, and daily afternoon nutritious snacks at dismissal.

GREAT NEWS! Save 50% on your student's technology fee if you complete the Free/Reduced Lunch application before Oct. 1st! Don't miss this opportunity to save money on student fees!

We have some new teachers and staff to welcome to our Owl Family too! Be on the look out in the next newsletter for their quick introductions and bios as they join our team.

See you all in just a couple short weeks!

Hard to Say Goodbye!

Our Westy Academy family is dealing with a very significant loss this school year, as our beloved Ms. Jennifer will not be returning to her position as Office Assistant.

Although this news comes with a tremendous amount of sadness for our school, it is something to be celebrated for Ms. Jennifer! She has decided to pursue her dream of becoming a Special Education Teacher and will be a full time college student this fall. We cannot imagine a better suited career for her!

Jennifer has made such a dynamic impact on our school and has undoubtedly, helped to build the strong community we have within our families and students. Jennifer literally knew each and every student's first and last names, grades and teachers by memory--as well as every single parent's---and always made everyone feel seen, heard and taken care of when in her presence. This is something to be revered and will be hard to replace!

We understand that we ALL will feel this absence over the next few months as we search, onboard and train another assistant.

We appreciate your patience with us as we navigate the beginning of the school year, and will always do our very best to be sure every family's needs are met.

We love you, Ms. Jennifer! Good Luck in College!
