PTO Fundraiser

Families should have received a fundraiser packet last week. Please check your child's backpack if you have not seen it yet. West Godwin has 2 fundraisers per year to help support field trips and special school events. Register online at www.shopfund.com. Once you register, you can share your selling links with family and friends. If every student just sold one item, we would raise quite a bit of money for our school! Selling has been extended one more week! KEEP SELLING!!

Harvest Festival

On Monday, October 31st, we will be having our Annual Harvest Festival! Students will be participating in a lot of fun activities including crafts, games, a hayride and a petting zoo. Please be sure your child is dressed for the weather that day as we will be in and outside. Also, NO COSTUMES are allowed at school. If parents are wishing to volunteer, please complete the volunteer forms that were sent home with your child. You must be an approved volunteer to participate.

Drop-Off -Students can be dropped off in the rear lot off of 36th street between 8:15 am and 8:30 am. Staff will call you forward to the flag and open the door for your student.

For safety, we ask that you and your student remain in your vehicle until staff directs you to the drop-off area. Please have your child’s coat on and additional items ready prior to pulling into the drop-off zone.

Pick-Up- Students can be picked up in the rear lot off 36th street between 3:15 pm & 3:30 pm. Please remember to have your student information sign in your window.

Please pay close attention to security officers and staff directing traffic daily. For safety please follow directions of staff during pick-up and drop-off and practice slow speeds through the student drop-off pick-up zone.

Please observe the Right Turn Only Sign as you exit the parking lot. Attempts to turn left have resulted in some extremely close calls when entering traffic on 36th street.

At Godwin Heights we believe that all students possess the ability to learn, to experience personal success, and to be productive citizens. Godwin Heights Public Schools deliver quality education enabling each student to work cooperatively and to participate in our diverse, democratic society
