Welcome New Staff
Dawn Sobleskey is our K-5 Art Teacher. She has been working at North Godwin with our 3rd - 5th grade students and now she is at West to provide Art Classes for our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders. Dawn taught at West Godwin many years ago so she is very familiar with our building!
Demi Youngstrom is our new DHHS Caseworker. Demi joined us to be able to assist families with their DHHS cases. Please contact her at 616-430-7361 or call the school office to be directed to her. Demi will be a great addition to our team!
Hailey Wolters will be starting with us today as our new TEAM 21 coordinator. Hailey is replacing Meagan Pifer who left to take another job out of the area. We are excited to have Hailey join our team!
Free English Classes
Brrrrrrr.... it's cold outside!!
It's that time of year again! As we head into winter and cold days ahead, please be sure to dress your child appropriately for the weather! Students go outside daily if the temperature is above 16 degrees and the wind chill is above zero.
Winter clothing to stay warm:
- Snow Boots
- Snow Pants
Please contact the school and ask for Sarah Schantz if your child is in need of winter gear.
If your child will not be riding the bus home or if you need to pick up your child early, please call the office by 2:30 pm so we are able to accommodate the change.
Drop-Off -Students can be dropped off in the rear lot off of 36th street between 8:15 am and 8:30 am. Staff will call you forward to the flag and open the door for your student.
For safety, we ask that you and your student remain in your vehicle until staff directs you to the drop-off area. Please have your child’s coat on and additional items ready prior to pulling into the drop-off zone.
Pick-Up- Students can be picked up in the rear lot off 36th street at 3:30 pm. Please remember to have your student information sign in your window.
Please pay close attention to security officers and staff directing traffic daily. For safety please follow directions of staff during pick-up and drop-off and practice slow speeds through the student drop-off pick-up zone.
Please observe the Right Turn Only Sign as you exit the parking lot. Attempts to turn left have resulted in some extremely close calls when entering traffic on 36th street.
Please contact Sarah Schantz, our Community School Coordinator, if you need assistance with food, clothing, shelter or mental health needs. We are here to help!
