Grizzly Gazette- 12/6/21
December 6, 2021
It's December West Briar family! The sound of holiday music spreads throughout our cafeteria during all lunches to bring joy to all. I pray everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving break and that it was filled with love, rest, and family/friends. My family and I enjoyed turkey on the beach as we spent our week in Florida with our closest family. I am truly blessed.
West Briar has a lot going on in the next two weeks before students are out for an extended Holiday break! See below for all updates and information for this week-
- Dec 8- Chuck-E-Cheese Spirit Night - 3pm-9pm
- Dec 9- West Briar Choir Concert- 6:30pm
- Dec 11- West Briar Clean Up Saturday- 9am-12pm
- Dec 11- West Briar Intermediate Theatre- The Best Christmas Pageant Ever- 6pm

*DLA = District Level Assessments- unlike our common assessments, the District-Level Assessments are a mid-year benchmark to determine where students are versus where they should be. All core content areas (Math, ELA, Social Studies, Science) take a DLA test that students are typically given two class periods to complete.
The Book Fair was Out of this World!
Overall, Grizzlies purchased $5,744 worth of books and school supplies! This mean...Dr. Mishlan WILL be dressing as a Space Alien on December 17th! Since I doubt that Dr. Mishlan has an alien costume hanging up in her closet, let's help her out by having a costume design contest! Come up with a costume design and a list of materials to put it together. The materials should be inexpensive and easy to get. The costume could even be built by recycled items! The winning design will be chosen by faculty judges and will be based on the overall concept, ease, and low-cost with which the costume can be put together. The winner will receive a gift certificate to somewhere after discussing their preferences with Ms. Miller.
Designs are due by December 10th to give us time to pick a winner and get the costume assembled. Be sure to pick up an entry form and guidelines from Ms. Miller in the library.
Chuck-E-Cheese Spirit Night- December 8
Treat your family to Chuck-E-Cheese this Wednesday anytime from 3:00pm-9:00pm and benefit West Briar's PTO! You must bring this flyer to your visit to earn any of the coupons included and to get the donation. Use either the linked flyer or the screenshot. Hope to see you there!

Looking for Volunteers!
We are looking for West Briar community members to volunteer to sponsor an after-school club once a week. Parents have asked us to promote more extracurricular opportunities for students to feel connected and involved in their school. If you (or someone you know) has a special interest that they are able to share with our students, please fill out the Microsoft Forms with this information below!
West Briar Clean-Up Day
Clean-up volunteers will spend Saturday morning working to beautify our campus outdoor space. This includes (but is not limited to) mulching, landscaping, flower/plant pots, power washing...anything that spices up our campus space!
Please bring your materials, tools, and a great attitude!

Aquill Baynard Campus Visit
Former West Briar student and recent Harlem Globetrotter now Pro-Basketball Player- Aquill Baynard - visited West Briar this week. The students heard him share about making right choices and hanging out with others that make good decisions and it's importance on their future. He encouraged students to Dream Big! He finished up the sixth grade presentations by taking on some students 1-1 during PE class.
Pictures of some of his visit are below.
