Project Homeless Connect Norfolk

February 4-7

Westside students have an opportunity to help our community!

Project Homeless Connect Norfolk (PHCN) is a one-day, one-stop event where individuals in need can access a multitude of service providers all under one roof. Our students can help out by bringing plastic bags from home and helping us to gather 1,000 bags! PHCN is going into it’s third year and last year at their mobile food pantry, they gave out 25,000 pounds of food away at no cost. They went through 500 plastic bags in their first three hours. Let’s make sure they don’t run out of plastic bags this year! Please bring plastic bags to your classroom during the week of February 4-7.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Reminder - Parent Teacher Conferences are held the week of February 4-7!

Your child should have brought home a note with your conference date and time listed. Please plan to attend! Your child is doing wonderful things at Westside and we are excited to share with you. If you need to reschedule, please contact your child's classroom teacher, ASAP. Thanks!

Kindergarten Enrollment

If you have a child that will be in kindergarten during the 2019-2020 school year, please stop by the office to pick up an enrollment packet. Kindergarten Round Up will be held on April 17. More information will be sent home, once you have enrolled your child.

Math Practice

The Westside students have been working hard to learn their math facts. All students are tracking their progress and working hard to reach end-of-year goals. Below are some suggested websites for math and math fact practice. Take a look!

Box Tops

Each class is trying to collect 1,500 box tops this school year to earn a pizza party! There are several prizes awarded along the way, as well. Please collect your box tops and send them to school. Students will earn pizza slices throughout the year. Thank you!
