Share the love!

Bobcat Families,

Thank you for your support as we move back to face-to-face learning. Our team continues to learn and grow as we push your child's education further every day. We strive to continue finding creative ways to work with small groups of students each day and fulfilling each child's needs while keeping others safe.

Please continue to praise your child and reach out to a teacher or staff member who is doing a wonderful job. As we approach Valentine's Day and with our Positivity Project's character strength being "love" this week, it would be appreciated to share a little love and thank those at West that are making every day better! Everyone feels better when they are recognized for their hard work.

With that said, thank you for all you do and for trusting our team here at Bangor West!

Parking Concerns

Please remember to use the east side lot ONLY for parent drop off and pick up. Our busses are already navigating in a tight area and cars continue to utilize that space and move in and out of our buses putting our students and bus drivers in danger.

If you arrive early for your child, do not take up parking spaces until your child is dismissed. It's appreciated if you drive around the block and come back into the lot to avoid the congestion. Our pick up lot is typically empty 3:15 and students will wait outside with an adult until then.

As a reminder, the dismissal times are below.

3:00 - Kindergarten

3:02 - 1st grade

3:04 - 2nd grade

3:06 - 3rd grade

3:08 - 4th grade

3:10 - 5th grade

If you have any questions please let us know and we will be happy to give you guidance.

Charge Chromebooks

Despite being in person, teachers will still use technology frequently as a way of instruction. Please make sure your child's devices are charging every night and they remember to bring both the Chromebook and charge to school every day.

Snow days

Now that we are back in person, snow days will move to our traditional snow days without having any school (including remote learning) during the day.

Brain Breaks

Each week we will have a magician perform a Brain Break utilizing videos of our students and staff. It is a great way to stay connected and promote positivity through our building while also learning a little magic they can practice at home. Click on this link to check out the site where all of our videos will be hosted.
