A message from the principal

Dear Parents,


Thanksgiving is the appointed time for focusing on the good in our lives. In each of our days, we can find small blessings. Let’s be on the lookout for the bits of pleasure in each hour, and appreciate the people who bring love and light to everyone who is blessed to know them.

I am so thankful for this wonderful West Field family that I have joined. I am truly grateful to be getting to work along side amazing staff and families. Thank you for making West Field such a great place to for our students.


As you take time to enjoy your family next week, you may consider having your child continue reading throughout the week. Reading is the heart and foundation of a child's learning. I'd like to provide a few tips to engage in reading with your child.



Here are a few tips for how to make reading fun for our students and you:


Point Out the Details

Notice details and the small changes in the illustrations of a book. It will help your child become a good observer and eventually see differences in the shapes of letters when learning to read.


Be Enthusiastic

When reading aloud, don’t be afraid to “ham it up!” Make different voices for different characters. Show your child by the excitement in your voice, that you enjoy the book too!


Draw Pictures to Go with the Story

Drawing is a special way for your child to retell or create a new story. Write down what your child tells you about the picture he or she makes.


Have Your Child Retell the Story

When children can retell a story it helps them to really understand the meaning of the words in the book. Using their own words to tell the story also builds vocabulary.


Predict the Story

What happens next? Ask your child to guess what will be on the next page of the book you are reading together. Your child will learn that events happen in a sequence.


We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I will miss every student and look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, November 26th.
