Summer Reading Programs
Throughout the school year, as part of Westside’s Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) process, students are assessed in reading and provided with strong instruction to support their needs. To engage families and extend the learning for students, we are sharing ways in which you can support your child with their reading. As we enter into summer, it is important to encourage practice in the area of reading so that students maintain the skills they learned this year.
Below are some available programs in the community or resources that can be used at home.
*Top priority is simply having your child read every day.
This can include times when someone reads to or with them.
Nebraska Reads: The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) has provided an extensive list with many online literacy activities.

2023-24 School Supplies
Hey parents, I am so excited that this year we've partnered with 1st Day School Supplies to provide pre-packaged school supplies which will be shipped directly to Loveland prior to the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year. This is an optional way to obtain school supplies for your child. You can still go to the store and purchase supplies if you prefer. The Loveland Community Club wanted to provide another option to save time for those who choose to do so! We hope you like it.
1st Day School Supplies are going to save us up to 30% over shopping at big box stores like Target, Walmart and Amazon. Better yet, they are the undisputed leader in custom kitting school supplies. Providing us with only brand names you trust and respect like Ticonderoga, Crayola, Elmer's and Clorox.
Some things to note: Headphones and calculators (when required) are optional add-ons, but are required for each student. You can purchase your own, recycle from last year, or purchase new with your kit. Items such as scissors and pencil bags/boxes were not allowed to be optional supplies. Please consider donating any extra supplies you have to the school.
So, what are you waiting for? Buy early and save! http://1stdayschoolsupplies.com/kits.php?sid=63038
