Parent/Teacher Communication



What makes the difference in how your child performs in school? The answer might surprise you. It’s not your child’s IQ, the teacher, the school, or your educational level. Although all of these play a part, study after study tells the same story. Children who do best in school have parents who are actively involved in their child’s education. One of the best ways to get involved is to continue building a strong parent-teacher partnership.

I ask that you come prepared to your communication conference with questions and information that will help both you and the teacher strengthen the team effort you share educating your child.

We look forward to seeing all of you during conferences!

Student of the Month

Loveland has begun recognizing a student of the month in each grade level this year. These students are nominated as a result of their effort, character, work completion, self-control, attitude towards others, citizenship, leadership, and integrity. Along with a small prize and being recognized at an all school assembly they were awarded a yard sign to display in their yard. The following were our September honorees:

Kindergarten - Vivian Ahlers

First Grade - Jane Davies

Second Grade - Maddie Standfill

Third Grade - Henry Evans

Fourth Grade - Dyani Foster

Fifth Grade - Keira Ortmann

Sixth Grade - Lucia Chalen

National Walk to School Day (October 6th)

International Walk to School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. Please encourage your child to walk or bike to school on October 6th.

Loveland Halloween Update

Halloween is coming soon. It’s time to think about your costumes. For our school parade and party please wear only fun and friendly costumes. Fun and friendly excludes blood, gore, scary/frightening masks or clothing, and weapons. If anyone has questions concerning the appropriateness of a costume, please contact the office. Thank you for keeping things on the fun and light side!

Please do not have your child wear costumes to school. If your child's costume includes typical school-appropriate clothing or can be worn underneath, these are great options. Students will have time to change before the parade but need to do so with minimal assistance from teachers.

Parade and Parties

Due to safety protocols the decision has been made to not have parents attend our Halloween parties. We would like to encourage parents to attend our annual costume parade at 2PM on October 29th. Our kindergarten class will lead the parade and the students will parade around the Loveland playground track. If you are not able to attend the parade, we will record the event and post it in our weekly update email.

Loveland Community Club Meeting

The Loveland Community Club will meet via Zoom on Monday, October 4th at 7 pm. There will be no in-person option.

Wednesday Dismissal

Every Wednesday we will end the school day at 3:00 pm instead of 3:30 pm. This gives our teachers throughout the District collaboration time by attending weekly professional learning communities. Please plan accordingly to pick your child up at 3PM.

2022 Battle of the Books

Mark your calendars to join us for the 2022 Battle of the Books on March 19, 2022 at Westside Middle School! This annual Westside district tradition provides an opportunity for teams of 3-5 students in 4th-6th grade to participate in a quiz bowl-style competition where they answer questions based on content from the 2021-2022 Golden Sower nominees.

Please visit our FAQ or Rules pages for more information about the event. Registration will be in October. Happy reading!

Westside families -

We are encountering problems at our Varsity Football Games at Westside High School involving our students. Specifically, we have noticed an increasing number of elementary and/or middle school students unaccompanied and/or unsupervised during and after games. This last week, our staff and security noted a group of younger students together in our parking lot more than 30 minutes after the stands had emptied; needless to say, it was concerning to see a group of 10-13 year olds, alone, at 10pm on a Friday night.

This is creating safety concerns, as well as crowd control and behavioral issues for our security, staff members, and other students and families. While we encourage our younger students to attend games, whether football, softball, basketball, etc., we remind you they must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. In addition, we remind all students they are expected to sit/stay in the stands to watch the game and not congregate near concession stands and restrooms.

Thank you for your support in helping Westside High to be a welcoming and safe place for all of our fans, student athletes and visitors.

Changing Weather

Please make sure your child is wearing appropriate clothing in the morning. Sweatshirts, fleeces, and lightweight jackets are easy to keep in a backpack in case of cooler temperatures at recess time.

Extra Clothes Needed

The health office is in need of smaller size pants for boys and girls.(size 5-10) If you or anyone you know would be willing to donate any that your child has outgrown to Loveland's health office, we would really appreciate it!

Thank You
