Western Valley Elementary ROAR
November 12, 2023
I hope you all enjoyed the 3-day weekend. Thank you to the Veterans in our community- all who have served, we appreciate all that you sacrificed to serve our country. And thank you to the families of those in the military, for supporting your veteran.
This week we have a few events: Wednesday is the annual Holiday Hustle. Our students will be running laps around the field, to keep healthy and fit. Parents are welcome to cheer on their kids! Just be sure to sign in at the front office with a photo ID, and you'll get a visitor sticker.
Friday is our Annual Aja Calhoun Thanksgiving Dinner. The PTO has sold about 450 meals, and the WVE & WVM staff look forward to serving dinner to our Wildcat community! Those who reserved a ticket will be receiving them this week. A reminder, we will have gift baskets, baked goods, and silent auction items available for purchase as well as the WVM Mariachi band and Santa Maria Ballet Folkorico dancers!
Academic & Enrichment Tutoring continue this week. 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 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!
