  • Save the Date: August 8th from 4p-6p is our "Meet the Teacher" event

State Assessment results were released last week, and we are extremely proud of our students and staff! Westside earned a school grade of a "B" for our performance, but was just 1% shy of an "A". Thank you to all families and parents who supported their students throughout the school year to help them succeed. You can access your child's personal FSA scores on their FOCUS account via your smartphone or the child's Launchpad account.

Westside is continuing to hire passionate, dedicated individuals for our 22-23 staff. Currently, we are in need of the following positions:

  • First Grade Teacher
  • Sixth Grade Teacher
  • VE-SLD Teacher
  • Speech-Language Pathologist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Part-Time Guidance Service Professional
  • 2 Custodial Team members
  • 1 Cafe Team member

If you are interested in any of the above positions, please visit the BPS career page HERE to see qualifications and set up a BEACON account to apply.

Our office continues to be open Monday-Friday from 7:30-3:00p each week. Please come on in if we can support you in any way.

SAVE TIME....SKIP THE LINE by getting your FAST PASS today!

Stop by our office any time Monday-Friday between 7:30a-3:00p before July 22nd to finalize registration and receive a FAST PASS for Registration Day on July 27th! Please bring with you a valid Florida's Driver's License, and proof of residency such as a utility bill. You will be asked to complete a couple short forms including an updated Health Card for each of your children, so please block out 15-30 minutes when you arrive.

This FAST PASS will allow you to simply "drive through" our Registration Loop and pick up all your child's paperwork, teacher assignment, bus slips and more. Families who do not have a FAST PASS will be asked to park and come into the building to complete the process on that day.

If you have further questions, please call Mrs. Stahl or Mrs. Waugh at (321) 956-5050.

Brevard After School Begins Registration 7/20

Planning for before and after care for your child? Westside offers our Brevard Afterschool Program that runs from 6a-6p each school day. Registration opens July 20th. Please find registration information flyers at the bottom of this newsletter or click the button below to visit their website.

Want To Become a Westside Volunteer?

If you are interested in being a registered volunteer next school year, please contact our District Security Office in Viera at (321) 633-1000. Currently, it is FREE to have your fingerprinting and background checks completed, so don't delay!

Our BPS safety protocols require any adult on campus during school hours must be a registered volunteer. This includes helping in our classrooms, working with students, participating in our PTO and assisting with special events. We are looking to expand our volunteer program next year and will need as many wonderful and willing adults as possible to support the students and school.

Become A Partner in Education

We are recruiting local businesses and organizations to become Partners In Education! If you own or work for a local business, have a connection with a company, or sponsor a local organization and are interested in supporting our students' learning or school campus, please reach our to Ms. Jennifer Johnston at

Westside is looking to grow our community outreach for next year and hope you will be part of this wonderful expansion. Our vision is to enhance student achievement and real-world knowledge through our business partnerships. This could include reading with students, participating in a career presentation, conducting a hands-on learning lesson, starring in a video interview about your business and steps you took to achieve it, and much more.

We hope you will join us in taking Westside to the next level in 2022-2023!
