IT'S WELLNESS WEEKEND

West Florence,


Every month, we dedicate one weekend for all students, faculty/staff, and community members to focus on their mental and physical health. These weekends are known as "Wellness Weekends." During these weekends, students are not assigned any homework or assignments. Additionally, our faculty/staff are asked to step away from their emails and not engage in any work as well.


Instead, we want the entire West Florence community to focus on spending time with family and friends and taking care of mental and physical health.

KASTLE TIME: REMINDERS & SEEKING HELP FROM COMMUNITY

West Florence Family,


This week, we began our new lunch program, Kastle Time. Kastle Time provides all students an opportunity to engage in clubs, tutoring, activities, and eat lunch within a one hour period. Our entire school has thoroughly enjoyed Kastle Time this week.


With that being said, we do want to remind both students and parents/guardians of a few stipulations and policies surrounding Kastle Time:

  • There are NO sign-outs during Kastle Time (11:30 am - 12:30 pm)
  • Food cannot be dropped off for students during Kastle Time or any other time of the day. Outside food is not allowed in the building - this is a safety issue. Any food delivered will be thrown away.
  • Students are not allowed to leave campus during Kastle Time. If students try to leave, they will be caught and suspended.



Lastly, we are reaching out to our community for help! We have had several clubs that have been a huge hit with our students. We are looking to our community for any donations to assist us in running the following clubs:

  • Donations of yarn, knitting and/or crocheting needles for our Knitting & Crocheting club.
  • Donations of tennis balls for our tennis club.
  • Donations of board games, and/or chess boards for our board games club.

Any donations can be dropped off in the front office. We greatly appreciate our community partners who are willing to make any donations!

#BeTheChange: WEST FLORENCE MAKES CHANGE

This school year, our theme is #BeTheChange. We are asking all students, faculty/staff, and community members to join us in creating change in our school, our community, our state, and nation. Various clubs and organizations in our school are working to give back to the community. We ask everyone to get involved, donate items, give volunteer hours, and let's show the world how West Florence can make positive change.


In our newsletters, we will highlight how the West community wants and does make change by releasing #BeTheChange videos. Here is our first one!
