The World of Westwood Wolves

There is no place like our PACK. #WestwoodFamily

September 15th, 2023

The week went by so fast and we cannot believe we are already making plans for the upcoming Student Led Conferences. In the Tuesday folder, you will find a schedule of your student’s conference time. Our teachers worked very hard to accommodate siblings as close as possible. We know it’s hard for families to come at different times so we really try to accommodate everyone the best we can.

It is very important not to miss your appointment and to come on time. Students and Teachers have prepared for these conferences and can't wait to share what our students are learning with you! During the upcoming Student Led Conferences, teachers will be sharing our learners' reports from NWEA that show a graph of growth in math and reading. Our students take this assessment three times per year. Below you can find links that provide more information. If you have any questions after reading the reports, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your support and partnership. We appreciate you being part of our PACK.

Our School Day

This year's school day schedule is the same as last year. As a reminder, our office is open from 7:20 am to 4:30 pm. We open the doors to our building at 7:20 am and school starts right at 7:45 am. Dismissal is at 3:10 pm every day except Wednesday when we have early dismissal at 1:50 pm.


Car Riders:

  • If you have students in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade, your students will need to be dropped off and picked up in the front of the building.
  • If you have students in grades 3rd-5th your students will need to be dropped off and picked up on the east side of the building.
  • For the safety of all students, please have their car tag hanging on the rear view mirror as we are continuing to use the same dismissal procedures as the last couple of years.
  • Teachers and support staff will be available to help students find their way to their classroom the first few days of school.


  • Once again this year, students who are walkers or bike riders will be dismissed on the far side of the fence on McRay Ave.
  • We ask that parents do not congregate inside the fence for our students' safety.
  • We will continue to have a cross guard at the corner of McRay Ave. and Carlton St.
  • We ask that students and their families refrain from crossing in front of the building on McRay Ave.

We appreciate your patience as we work through all of these items on the first days of school. Our students' safety is our number one priority. We cannot do it without your help!
