Important Reminders

¨ Please make sure your child is reading at least 20 minutes each night. Whenever your child finishes a book, he/she needs to fill out a recreational reading form. Parents need to sign this form.

¨ Students are responsible for using their planners for organization purposes. They should be writing down homework assignments and important reminders. We do not require a parent signature on these, unless we deem it necessary for communication purposes.


Dear Fifth Grade Parents/Guardians,

This year we will be using baby/early childhood pictures of your children in both the yearbook and the fifth grade slideshow. The baby picture is mainly for the yearbook, but I would love any pictures of your child in their later years as well (preschool through 5th grade.) Early group pictures with their Westridge classmates are welcome also! You can email the pictures or send in the actual photos, which I can then copy and return to you. Please do whichever is more convenient for you. The baby picture for the yearbook needs to be turned in no later than February 26th; however, I will take any early childhood pictures up until the beginning of May! I appreciate your help!

Thank you,

Cheryl Coover
