The Westside Wonder
Westside Parent Newsletter
- Instruction begins at 7:45 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.
- Please do not pass in the car rider line. This is not safe for our students or parents. Please make sure your child exits out of the passenger side so that they do not have to cross in front of cars.
- If you have any transportation changes, please make sure that you let Ms. Donna know by 2:30. This helps ensure that she has enough time to alert teachers of the change.
- Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor picnic area.
- Your child may bring a water bottle to school and refill it our touch less water fountains.

Attention 5th Grade Parents!
Mrs. Page's Counselor Corner
I cannot believe we are here. This year has FLOWN by! This is my very last week of counseling classroom lessons.. I am so excited to get to spend some time with them at Track and Field on their day!
So let’s gear up for summer. Being out of routine can be hard on kiddos. Your child’s social emotional well- being in mind is priority! Here are some resources for you and your child to look at together to prepare for the summer months. This week is the Bingo Challenge Board!!
If you have any questions or need anything, please do not hesitate to contact her. firstname.lastname@example.org or 501-679-1029 ext 3.

Parent Reading Resources
These YouTube Read-Alouds Are Perfect For Young Readers - IMSE - Journal
Reading aloud is an essential skill for beginner readers. Not only does it help put together letters and words with corresponding sounds, but it allows teaches students to listen for cues and hear others.
Make Learning Fun with Word Games - IMSE - Journal
Scrabble Junior; Ages 5 and up In this child-friendly version of the long-time board game favorite, Scrabble, the board has two sides. On the first are words for young players to match their tiles to. On the flip side is a blank grid where players can build words and then build on the words of other players.
Research Beat: Read to Babies Now for Better Literacy Skills Later - IMSE - Journal
When it comes to reading to children-parents can't start too early! Children develop better language skills when they're read to and have a jump start on developing literacy skills they will need once they enter school. Yet every year, more than 1 in 3 students entering American schools do not have the language skills they need to master reading.
