Setting Goals

Goal setting is part of life. Our students and teachers are busy setting concrete goals for our students. Please ask your child about math computational fluency goals, sight words, and remember to ask them about learning everyday.


Vegetable Garden

Vegetable garden progress

Three classes at Western have been working hard to plant a fall vegetable garden. We have been planting in raised beds and having a lot of fun.


STEM

You may have heard about STEM in the media lately. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The careers today are based in these fields and America's students aren't doing a great job pursuing these degrees. The Coweta County school system is looking for ways to encourage STEM thinking in our students. At Western we are encouraging our students to learn how to think, solve problems, and developing a strong basic understanding of mathematics.


Electronic communication

Make sure you are signing up for Edmodo and Remind101 from you child's teacher. It's a great way to stay connected with what's going on at school.
