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!
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.
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!

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!
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.
