Mrs. Lamb's Corner ..........

Westlake families,


It has been a cold week back! We do go outside for recess when the weather is above 10 degrees so please continue to send your students with hats, gloves, snow pants, and boots. We do have extra in the building if students need to use them. Students did a great job adjusting back to school this week, although we had a few that said they were tired and missed sleeping in!
