Mrs. Johns: Hi, I am Mrs. Johns, your child's physical education teacher. I previously taught at the high school and am having so much fun getting to know "the littles" here at West. In PE class this month we have been focusing on our class rules and procedures: Be Safe! Always Listen! and Try Your Best! Kindergarten classes have enjoyed moving to "The Goldfish Song" and learning different ways to move our bodies through hopping, leaping, walking and jogging. 1st and 2nd graders are reviewing those locomotor skills along with skipping, jumping, galloping and gliding. Ask your child to see if they can show you all 8 locomotor moves!
Ms. Matelski: Library Update:
Students have been spending time exploring the library and discovering where to find their favorite books! We have talked about book care and the ways we treat our books. This next month we will be discussing the roles of authors and illustrators, the different parts of a book, and how to PICK the just right book for us! Please remember if your students bring a library book home, to return it back to school on their library day so they can check out a new one!
Kids' Food Basket
If your child will not be riding the bus home, 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 between 3:15 pm & 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.
