Wild West Highest Attendance Day

Wednesday, September 18 is Highest Attendance Day!


  • All students and staff are invited to dress up in their western attire.
  • Wulfe Brothers will be performing a concert
  • Prizes will be drawn out during the concert


We want to have the highest attendance in the district!


If we have the highest attendance on September 18, then one students from each grade level will get to throw a pie in Principal Young's face!


Parents - Please help us win by not scheduling doctor appointments on Sept. 18th. We need your children here ALL day and ON time!



HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Volunteer Information

We love having volunteers come to our building to help out. If you are available to volunteer and have completed your Youth Leader Request Form, and have a specific day you can give us your time, we have some weekly tasks that need completed.

Drama

As you know, drama is a large part of our school culture. Not only does Westridge have amazing musicals in which students and the parents give countless hours, but all students are learning various elements of drama in subject areas like language arts.

School-wide we will be boosting our Drama program by:

· Send out a “focus standard” for the week

· Create questions of the day based on the weekly drama focus standard.

· On Monday of the following week during Morning Meeting in the gym, I will choose a group to perform a dramatic based on their work from the previous week.

The following are our focus standards for the month.
