Back to School Supplies

Hey parents!

I am happy to announce our continued partnership with 1st Day School Supplies. If there were ever a year to order your school supplies early, this is it! With all the supply chain issues, it makes back-to-school shopping easy and hassle free. Plus they have guaranteed our school the high quality brands you know & trust like Crayola, Ticonderoga, Elmers, Purell and Clorox. Your child's school supply box will be delivered directly to the school and will be waiting in their classroom on their first day, eliminating the need for you to shop and haul everything in. Click here to pre-order your box today!

6th Grade Warrior Walkabout

Hello, 6th Grade Parents!

We are excited to welcome your student to Westside Middle School next year! To help your child and family transition smoothly to a new building, we have a few important dates scheduled and hope you can join us.

May 12, during the school day is Warrior Walkabout

  • We will bus our 6th grade students to Westside Middle School for a special event: Warrior Walkabout! This opportunity allows students to see their new school firsthand and learn about what their new school day/year will look like.

  • Warrior Walkabout is split into two groups based on school. Information will be sent from all elementary schools for specific times and details.

  • Students will be transported back to their elementary schools for regular dismissal times and procedures.

We are excited to meet our new students and their families! If you have questions, please reach out to communications@westside66.net.
