The Wall of Fame for Shoe Tying for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd Graders

If your Kinder, 1st Grader, and/or Second Grader can tie his/her shoes, please notify Coaches Mirizzi & Mayes because they want to honor this accomplishment in the school gym on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


Once notified of the student's successful shoe-tying accomplishment, we will provide your student with a paper shoe to color, take the student's photo, and then post the photo and customized paper shoe on our WALL OF FAME FOR SHOE TYING!


It's going to be really exciting to see our young Tigers on the WALL OF FAME!

Our clinic needs new or gently used leggings, shorts, and pants

Accidents happen! And, sometimes students need warm, dry clothing to finish out their school day.


Nurse Hensel, as the keeper of the wardrobe, has reported a need for small, medium and large girls' leggings. She also needs, for boys and/or girls, small, medium, and large athletic shorts and pants.


We would appreciate your keeping Nurse Hensel's needs in mind if you have gently used clothing that your children no longer need. Many thanks!

Mrs. Dunn Releases Third Semester Art Newsletters!

Tiger artists have created some splendid works of art this past semester, many examples of which can be viewed in the hallways of West Cypress Hills. When you have an opportunity to visit the school, please feel free to stroll the main hallways to view our art galleries.


We are participating, again this year, in the Original Works fundraiser. Original Works offers us the opportunity to enable parents to view student art online. It also presents a way for families of our Tiger artists to create lovely gifts and mementos featuring their resident artist's works. The Art class receives 33% of the proceeds from purchases made through Original Works, and then those funds are used to purchase supplies and materials for our Art classes.


Be on the lookout! Information and ordering instructions are coming your way. Students are taking home Original Works packets this week!


Here are links to our third semester Art Newsletters for each grade level. These newsletters are also available on our school's website.
