Western Valley Elementary ROAR
October 16, 2023
Welcome Back! I hope you all had a restful Fall Break. It's hard to believe that 1st Quarter has passed already, but we are ready for a productive 2nd Quarter!
Academic Tutoring will be continuing this week, and Enrichment Tutoring will be starting. This year we have tried to provide interventions to as many students as possible. Some students are receiving their interventions during the day, while others were invited to after school tutoring to receive interventions at that time.
We have a lot going on this quarter, and we look forward to having families on campus for our events! This week we have 1st Q Awards Assemblies for 2-5th grade students. If your child will be receiving an award, they were given a paper with the date and times, and also a QR code if you prefer to join virtually. Make sure to check their backpack!
We do have drinking fountains in the classroom for kids who forget a water bottle, but we do not have cups for kids to fill. Please send a water bottle to school with your child every day.**
As it gets colder (assuming it will!), students may wear a hoodie or jacket to school. District policy is for students to wear a solid, uniform colored sweatshirt or sweater (navy, white, or baby blue). If there is writing or a graphic, it must be appropriate for school. The link below has school-approved sweatshirts for only $13! As students hear daily on the morning announcements, hoods and hats may not be worn indoors. If their sweatshirt has a hood, please remind them that they must remove the hood while in class.
A reminder, students may be signed out early up to 15 minutes before dismissal. After 2:45 (or 1:00 on Thursdays), we will not be calling up students for an early dismissal. If you have medical appointments or other reasons for an early dismissal, please plan accordingly.
Looking forward to a wonderful week back with our kids!
