Hello Westside Families! This week your child will be focusing on Drug Prevention for Red Ribbon Week! Along with theme days, we will be having lessons and activities to teach students how to stay healthy and say NO to drugs.

  • Monday: Team Up Against Drugs! Wear team jerseys, uniforms, or sports wear
  • Tuesday: Make the World a Brighter Place! Wear neon or colorful tie dye.
  • Wednesday: Rally Against Drugs! Wear RED
  • Thursday: You Won't See Us Doing Drugs! Wear camouflage.
  • Friday: Have Good Character, Be Drug Free! K/1- Storybook characters... 2nd-6th: dress up in grade level theme. (check with teachers)

Only two more days to order school shirts & hoodies (ends 10/26)! Items will be distributed through your child's classroom teacher in mid-November. Click HERE to get started! We will be doing another order in about a month!

Dr. Mullins, Superintendent, has released a Parent Opt-Out form for masks due to the rapid decline in cases. If you would like to utilize this option, please visit the BPS website for the form, complete, and send in with your child.

We had a wonderful time awarding students for their accomplishments last week! Check out our Facebook page for photos!

Westside Explorers Are Learning Every Moment of Every Day!

Mrs. Goolsby's Kindness Club has been spreading cheer all month long at Westside! This week, they honored our hard-working bus drivers with special cards and treat bags. Students can still join Kindness Club (which meets on Mondays) by simply asking for a permission slip from their teacher.
Third Grade students in Mrs. Wallace's class work hard every day in ELA and MATH! With creative teaching, learning is FUN!
Many of our Explorers completed the Summer Reading Challenge and were rewarded with an ice cream and popcorn party last week! Here are just a few photos of these reading rockstars!

Please send a mask and reusable water bottle with your child daily!
