Focus On Students
The Westside Panther Pride Leaders presented at the Norfolk Public Schools School Board Meeting on October 8, 2018. These fourth grade students are Westside leaders that presented our Panther Pride Assemblies. The assemblies are held monthly to recognize students with good character. Awards are presented and classes present the new character trait of the month. The Panther Pride Leaders wrap up each assembly with a dance, which they shared at the meeting on Monday.
Family Reading Night
November 12 is Veteran’s Day and a day to honor those who have served and are currently serving in the military. I would like to create a Veterans Wall of Honor to recognize the veterans that are relatives of Westside staff and students. If your child has a relative that has served, or is currently serving in the military, you are invited to share information and a picture of this individual. I ask for one picture of each veteran be brought to school or emailed to the email address below. Pictures need to be turned into the office by Thursday, November 8. If you wish for a photocopy to be made and hung, please request that with your classroom teacher. I also ask that you complete the attached information sheet for each relative being honored. These forms will be sent home with students by the end of the week. If you need additional forms, you may print at home or request additional copies from your classroom teachers.
Thank you for helping the Westside students and staff to honor those Veterans we know best! Please email pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org or send to school with the completed form.
