Navigation Notes

Greetings Westside Families! Report cards arrived home on Friday, so please be sure to review any paperwork inside the envelopes, sign, and return to school this week. We will be doing nine week awards in classrooms throughout the week to celebrate all the students accomplished first quarter.

Westside Elementary School Spirit Gear is NOW available to purchase for your child and family! Short sleeve shirts and hoodies are available with the Westside Explorers logo. This is the last week to order, and will be distributed through your child's classroom teacher in mid-November. Click HERE to get started!

This week your child will be focusing on the character trait of COOPERATION! Be sure to ask them what it means to cooperate, why it's important, and how they cooperated with others.

Westside Explorers Are Learning Every Moment of Every Day!

First graders in Mrs. Goolsby's class ended their week on a positive note with a "12 Circles Challenge" to stretch their creativity!
Last week, students participated in a fun, energetic presentation that focused on the character trait of COOPERATION! They learned about how they can accomplish more when working with others. This week they will be focusing more on cooperation during their class convention each morning!

School Bucks Program

We are very pleased to introduce $chool Buck$, a school fundraiser offered by Community Credit Union of Florida. All you have to do is take a moment to register your CCU Credit or Debit card using the simple, secure form on the web or conveniently in the mobile app, and CCU will make a $5 cash donation to our school for each card registered. Be sure to select our school from the drop-down menu available in the form.

If you have more than one CCU credit or debit card in your household, each with its own 16-digit card number, you can register them all and CCU will make a donation for each card you registered.

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