Welcome Back to Students

On 11/9, students in Mrs. Wild's, Mrs. Nicosia's, Mrs. Bertini's, Mrs. Mackellar's, and Mrs. Pingitore's Classes will be returning to school. We cannot wait to see you. Soon enough we will welcome all other classrooms -- Kindergarten on 11/30, Grades 1 and 2 on 12/7, and Grades 3, 4, and 5 on 12/14. Stay tuned for more information!

From Mrs. Warren About Book Exchange!

Come check out books, and visit Mrs. Warren! Make sure you check out books by Tuesday night.

Students can electronically place holds for one books (Kindergarten - 1st) and two books (2nd - 5th) using our West Elementary catalog Destiny Discover. Students can go onto this catalog using the West Elementary Library page. https://www.wscschools.org/domain/515

Happy Reading!

Be on the Look Out for our New Book Drop!

In the next few days, we should have our new book drop off installed near Door 21 (otherwise know as the Office Door). Please feel free to come before, during or after school to return our books. If they are library books, we will make sure they can back to Mrs. Warren. If they are classroom books, please make sure they are labeled with the teacher's name so we can return them.

Don't forget, returning books is just as important as taking them out so we can get them back in the hands of students who would love to read them!

Special thanks to Mrs. Warren, Mrs. Guida, and the West El Custodians for this awesome book drop!

A New Mascot?

The votes are in!
