Westmoor Update

Week of May 9th

Principal's Message

Westmoor Community,


Happy Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8 - Our moms are our superheroes and biggest supporters, the backbone of our families. They keep everyone together, no matter what the hurdles in life are. But we usually don’t tell them enough, how much they’re appreciated. Now’s the time, on her special day, to tell your mom how much she means to you.


On Tuesday, May 10 at 6:00 pm, our English Language Learners will have an awards celebration in the library with their teachers, administration, and families to recognize their outstanding work and achievements this year.


From our Superintendent, Toni Presta:

This Friday, May 13 at 5:00 pm, the District will host its Golden Centennial Celebration and Educational Staff Housing Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in the courtyard of the new workforce housing building at 705 Serramonte. All JUHSD staff and students, past and present, along with families and community members, are invited to attend this monumental event. For more information, please click here and I look forward to seeing you in attendance.


Please read important upcoming student events below. 9th, 10th, and 11th-grade finals will be May 24-26.


Respectfully,


Brockton Ahrens

WHS Principal

Here's what is going on in the library:

Mx P is currently reading Children of the Blood and Bone and has a copy available if you would like to read it as well. She just finished On the Come Up by Angie Thomas and highly recommends it. Also for your reading pleasure, she has put out a banned book--which has won several awards--All Boys Aren't Blue. Come check these books out.

We are also having our first Paper Parade. Come by the library to get details on how you can get supplies to build your very own cultural float. See sample float below.
