February is a month when we shift from the holiday season and look forward to a brand new year! There is plenty to look forward to in this new year as we trudge through the doldrums of winter and dream of sunnier days. This is also the month that we celebrate Black History and those who are credited with promoting civil rights and equality for all.

Valentines Day is also a holiday which we celebrate during the month of February. A time to show love and compassion to those we hold dear, and make our lives more bearable. I hope that all of us will take some time to “smell the roses along the way”. This month is a great time to show appreciation to those who walk with us on the journey of life!

On a more random and lighthearted note, some unofficial days we celebrate during the month of February are:

National Pizza Day, Groundhog Day, National Tater Tot Day, World Cancer Day, National Thank a Mail Carrier Day, Ice Cream For Breakfast Day, Unity Day, and National Frozen Yogurt Day, just to name a few. This month is a great time to celebrate diversity, promote kindness and compassion, or possibly celebrate your favorite cause or food.

Westwood Track

Westwood Boys and Girls Track Team will begin training in early March for our spring season. In order to participate a student must have a current physical on file with the Westwood Athletic Department. If an athlete participated in a fall or winter sport they will have a physical on file already. Physicals are good for one year. More information about practices times, location, etc. will come out in mid February.

News from the Nurse

  • Dear Families,

    February is National Dental Health Month!

    Make dental health part of your daily routine and share these reminders with your whole family:

    • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, especially after breakfast and before bedtime. Drinking water after eating also helps to clear your teeth of food particles.

    • Floss every day. An adult should help children under the age of eight to floss. Older children should be ready to floss on their own.

    • Limit the number of times you eat snacks, especially the sticky ones and long lasting ones.

    • Visit a dentist regularly for a routine check up and a cleaning.

    • Protect your teeth by wearing a mouth guard when playing sports.

    • Don’t forget to change your toothbrush regularly, and after an illness.

    Sweet snack facts:

    • Eating a lot of snacks with sugar may cause cavities.

    • Every time you eat sugar, plaque in your mouth mixes with the sugar to make acid. The acid hurts the teeth and causes decay over time. This can be painful!

    • The school nurse can help you find a dental home for your family!
