Principal's Message

Dear West TV families,


Thank you for all you've done this year to support your student and to support the school. The West TV staff and I are hopeful that next year there will be less Covid-19 and more opportunities for families to connect. I will keep you informed throughout the summer of plans for next year and look forward to welcoming everyone back on the first day of school - Tuesday, September 6th!


Summer Reading

It's been a wonderful year of learning and students have made tremendous growth, both academically and socially. Be sure to have your student reading throughout the summer - every day if you can! The recommended amount of time per day is 20 minutes for grades K & 1, 30 minutes for grades 2 & 3 and 40 minutes for grades 4 & 5.


Report Cards

2nd Semester Report Cards will be available for viewing in ParentVue on Monday, June 27th.


Next year's teacher

When will I find out who my child's teacher will be next year? You will receive an email from the school on Wednesday, August 31st.


Enjoy the beautiful weather this week! In July I will be traveling to California to spend time with my 29-year-old daughter Rachel who lives in Los Angeles. It's been several years since I've been there and I'm really looking forward to it.


I wish you and your family a fun-filled summer!


Principal Valentine

5th grade gift to West TV

Each year the 5th graders give a gift to the school. The gift in 2021was replacing the Little Free Library in the parking lot and purchasing brand new books for it.


History of the Little Free Library

The Little Library was started by Andy Owens, who attended West TV from 1992 -1996. He decorated the Little Free Library and every week would come to West TV to clean up and reload books for children of all ages. It was a free library and children could take books, borrow books, or leave books.


Andy Owens passed away in 2017


All families are welcome to use the Little Free Library - donate a book, take a book or both!

Big picture

At West TV we aspire to develop empowered lifelong learners who make a positive difference in the global community.


District Goal: WE empower all students to achieve post-high school success.
