Extended Learning Days
What to expect
Westfield Washington Schools has included three (3) Extended Learning Days in the school calendar for the 2021-22 school year. The dates for these Extended Learning Days are:
Wednesday, September 15, 2021
Wednesday, January 12, 2022
Wednesday, April 20, 2022
For students, it is time outside of the traditional school day for students to work on projects, take educational trips or visit a university. These days are not eLearning days. Teachers will not be providing specific assignments and school work for the day.
For teachers, it is a time to work on our Continuous Quality Improvement process through professional development and the PLC process to improve our horizontal & vertical alignment in curriculum and instruction.
BAC on Extended Learning Days
BAC is open for all day care on the district's scheduled professional development days (September 15th, January 12th, April 20th). Each elementary school and the intermediate school will offer care on these days but enrollment is limited and spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis.
A New Homecoming Tradition: HoCo Fest
Hamilton County Kids Coats is preparing for our 2021 give-a-way in Hamilton County.
This year some of the sites will remain a drive thru site while others will return to in-person shopping. The drive thru sites will have pre-picked each child’s coat based on information gathered during sign-up. They will receive a coat, hat and gloves in a bag and will show up to their assigned give a way site and time and will be handed their items. The traditional give a way sites will have families show up and shop for their items on their own at their designated time.
Here is information for families that may need some assistance this year, or if your family or organization would like to volunteer in helping with the coat drive.
2021 give-a-way sites in Hamilton County
- October 28 Arcadia – In person shopping
- October 30 Westfield – Drive thru
- November 6 Carmel & Fishers – Drive thru
- November 13th Sheridan & Noblesville – In person shopping
The Online appointment sign-up is live now for kids that need coats until
October 15th https://kidscoats.org/appointments/ (You can also call if you do not
have internet at 317-324-8818)
Volunteers are welcome to visit our website https://kidscoats.org/volunteer to
schedule your time to assist.
Get your Shamrock Swag!
The theme of this school year is Rock Strong and you may have seen these shirts popping up all around the community! We faced a school year like no other and now we are ready to bounce back Rock Strong!
Thank you to CSO and Skillman, our construction partners, for buying every WWS employee one of these shirts. Here is your chance to get one of your own!
With every purchase, a $5 donation is made to the Westfield Education Foundation and their ongoing mission to provide scholarships and grants for our students and teachers so they can unlock their potential.
What to Do if You Suspect a Disability
If you suspect your child may have a disability or have concerns related to your child’s IEP, please contact your child’s teacher, school principal or call the student services/special education office at 317-867-8006.
For children at least two and a half years of age, but not yet age-eligible for kindergarten, you should contact the Early Childhood Assessment Team at Washington Woods Elementary (317) 867-7900.
Apply for Financial Assistance
Even though school lunches are free to all students, to receive financial assistance for curricular materials (Chromebooks, textbooks, workbooks, classroom novels, online resources, and supplies like science lab chemicals, and art supplies) families still need to apply to the free and reduced program.
The application must be completed online. If you need access to a computer or assistance filling it out, please contact Gladys Salas at Central Office at 317-867-8002.
If you do not qualify for the free and reduced program, there are payment plans designed to help parents pay their student(s) fees in smaller amounts.
Shamrock Shout Out
The three students who raised the most money for the Oak Trace Elementary Walk-a-Thon.
Oak Trace second graders got to douse their principals with silly string as a reward for being the grade that raise the most money for the Walk-a-Thon.
Mrs. Hitch and Mrs. Herring took their stringing like champs!
These ambitious Rocks fell just short of their $40,000 fund raising goal! But, with less students than last year, they raised even more money for their school. That shows you just how motivated our Rocks are and how much our community loves our schools!
