1st Nine Weeks

Hooray!! We have made it the 2nd nine weeks. Our students and staff have worked so hard to stay on task and achieve all of our goals. We had a very successful first nine weeks. There were changes to our drop off and dismissal procedure. We've even had to close off some of our playground and recess area due to construction. With a spirit of determination, we have found alternatives that seem to be working. Even through the hassle we are still having a ball at WES. Thanks for all of your cooperation and communication thus far. Remember to follow us on all of our social media sites for regular updates. Report Cards were sent home this week. We encourage you to reach out to your child's teacher via Remind, School Status, or email with concerns.


Reminders:



  • Daily drop off is at 7:35 a.m.



Dismissal Times :



  • Prek 2:20
  • Kindergarten 2:15
  • 1st & 2nd Grade- 2:30



Parents, please make sure that your child is picked up on time. We have had a few students picked up late in the last few weeks. Help us ensure that your child is safe by picking them up on time.


Do not drive around the dismissal line to pick up your child. This is not fair to the parents that are waiting in line patiently. It also will not expedite your pick up time. You will have to wait until your child is dismissed. We will dismiss students to parents who have entered the line with pick up numbers first. Students can not check out after 2:00 p.m. After this time we are working to dismiss students to parents who are in line and ready for pick up. If you are sending someone to pick up your child they must have the dismissal tag. Students will not be dismissed to individuals without the appropriate dismissal tag/pik my kid number.


Thanks for working with us,


Tisha Lewis, Principal

Pre-K News

Pre-k teachers will be attending a conference on October 22, 2021. There will be no school for pre-k students on this day.

Kindergarten News

Kindergarten is so excited for the month of October! They will be learning all about pumpkins and bats. During reading, Kindergarten will be working on the letters i, n, c, o and on our October sight words. Don't forget the October sight words are listed on the weekly homework sheet! In math, students will begin learning about sorting and classifying objects! It is going to be a busy, but great month in Kindergarten!

First Grade News

First grade has a lot of exciting things going on in October. In math, we will be learning subtraction strategies with numbers to 20 and adding and subtracting fluently with numbers to 20. In reading, we will focus on short vowel u, words with ending blends, and words with diagraphs. Our comprehension skill will be making and confirming predictions. We will also be able to tell the characters, setting, and events in a story. We will celebrate the 50th day of school on October 22, 2021. This day will be filled with fun and engaging activities. Our students will be presenting their pumpkin storybook character and book report. This will give each student the chance to show off their speaking and listening skills.

Second Grade News

During the month of October, our 2nd graders will be fluently adding 2-digit numbers using the "break apart" strategy.

Our 2nd graders will also be working on reading passages both fluently and accurately, while building comprehension skills. They will be able to identify the main idea and details in their reading passages.

Library News

The library has been busy lately! In September, we had a Scholastic Book Fair that raised $2,746 for our library. It was fun to help students shop for new books. Our 1st and 2nd grade students have been busy reading books and taking Accelerated Reader quizzes. During the 1st Nine Weeks, they passed 2,032 AR quizzes! We celebrated on October 12th with an AR Party in the library for students who met their goals. I can’t wait to see what they do in the 2nd Nine Weeks. Pre-K and Kindergarten students have had a good time listening to Berenstain Bears books like The Spooky Old Tree and Bears in the Night. They also learned the song “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”. The students had lots of fun practicing “over”, “under”, “around”, and “through”.

Nurse's Corner

Hello everyone!


At the moment, our Covid numbers here at WES are looking really good!! We are continuing to clean desks and hard surfaces daily. Please encourage your students to wash hands with soap and water often, and cover their sneezes and coughs with their elbows. Also, we have several students that come to school daily without wearing their mask. Please remind your child to grab their mask from home and put on before leaving out of your vehicle. Please do not send your child to school sick. We have a policy that states students must be 24 hours fever free without having to give medication before returning to school. With flu season just around the corner, we want to do everything possible to keep our kids happy and healthy! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at the school.


Thank you,

Terri Cameron
