Aiming to Keep You Informed
November 8, 2019
From the Office
Today, marks the end of the First Trimester. Report cards will be mailed home the week of November 18th. Students will be notified of their official GPA in their report cards and will also receive their Honor Roll ribbons with the report card if they earned a 3.2 or higher.
Honor Roll Recognition - December 6th
We are hosting our First Trimester Honor Roll recognition on December 6th from 7:40am - 8:10am in our Athletics Gym, entrance 32. Students who earn a 3.2 or higher GPA for the First Trimester, will be eligible to attend. Parents and relatives of Honor Roll students are also invited to join us! Our PTO will be providing drinks and treats & the morning will include a performance by our Westfield Jazz Band. Families and students will be able to choose their seating and may sit together. As part of the program, students will be invited to stand and be recognized for their achievement. At 8:15, students will be dismissed from the gym to go to their lockers and all parents and guests will be required to exit the building. Attending the Honor Roll recognition is optional.
We are fortunate to have several local veterans planning to visit our classrooms as part of our Veterans Day activities on Monday, November 11th. We encourage students to take the time this weekend to talk with friends and relatives who are veterans and to recognize them for their service.
