Westy Academy Weekly Newsletter
Week of January 31st-February 4th 2022
A Message From the Principal...
Here we are, wrapping up the last week of January already! With February on the horizon, there are a couple school events to make note of. To specifically note a couple of agenda items, Spring Parent Teacher Conferences are fast approaching and will be at the end of February. This is your opportunity to talk about your student's progress in class, and get a snap shot of them as we move into a new school year.
Secondly, we are hoping to generate parent feedback with our Highly Reliable Schools Survey that will be open to take from Jan. 31st to Feb. 11th. Check below for details, and offered prizes for participation.
Finally, another reminder that enrollment is open for the 2022-23 school year.
All current students need to complete registration!
Please take a moment when you can, and log in to your Infinite Campus Parent Portal accounts to take care of this for your student. Simply click the link below, to get started. If you need help with retrieving your account information, please give our office a call.
See everyone next week!

Chinese New Year is February 1st! Year of the Tiger
Tigers are the third of the Chinese zodiacs. According to legend, Tiger was confident that no one could compete with its speed and vigor for the celestial race that would decide the order of the zodiacs. However, when Tiger climbed out of the river, thinking it was first, it was informed that Rat placed first for its cunning and Ox placed second for its diligence. This left the king of the jungle having to settle for third place.
Tigers are courageous and active people who love a good challenge and adventure in life.
Like their eponymous zodiac animal, people born in years of the Tiger are vigorous and ambitious, daring and courageous, enthusiastic and generous, self-confident with a sense of justice and a commitment to help others for the greater good.
If you are a student who was born in 2010, this is your year!
