A Message From the Principal...

Hello Owls!

Fall Conferences are here! Make sure you take the opportunity to sign up for Parent Teacher Conferences! We are excited to welcome parents back in face to face meetings, but please let us know if you prefer a ZOOM session, instead. We are here to accommodate our families! If you cannot make either date, you can also make an individual appointment with your student’s teacher, or anyone else in the building you might need to speak to.

Westy Academy will be participating in our own Student Olympics this year! With the Summer 2021 Olympics just ending, and the Winter 2022 Olympics set to begin, this is a perfect chance to educate our children on the World's largest competitive sports series. Students will compete for the Gold this Friday, October 1st. Fun Fact! Did you know that at least one of the of Olympic Rings' colors appears in EVERY national flag? Pretty cool!

Last but not least of mention, our Parent Teacher Organization is starting back up! Since COVID, the PTO had to take a break from in-person meetings...but they are back and looking for NEW MEMBERS! They will have their first meeting Tuesday Oct. 5th @ 5:15pm. Any parents or family that are interested in supporting the PTO, interacting with the school, helping to schedule, plan and execute school events should most definitely attend! We will have an interpreter present for Spanish assistance as well.

That's it! Things are nothing less than busy for us here at school!
