Title 1 Updates

SAVE the DATE for our Title 1 Math Night on November 4th from 5:30-7p! This will be a "drive-through" or "walk-up" experience for families. Each family will receive a FREE fun and helpful math activity to build foundational math skills at home. Plus, every family has a chance to win prizes for participating! More information coming soon!

Westside Explorers Are Learning Every Moment of Every Day!

Kindergarteners in Ms. Cartechine's class wrapped up their 5 senses unit with a fun taste test! They worked on building vocabulary such as bitter and sour. Some liked the flavors while others were clearly uninterested!
Fourth graders in Mrs. Baker's class dissected owl pellets to see the transfer of energy in food chain.

Please send a mask and reusable water bottle with your child daily!
