· The 1st is Picture Day.
· There is no school on the 10th (teacher institute) and the 13th (Columbus Day)
· The 22nd is a 11:45 early dismissal day
· The 24th is the end of 1st quarter and report cards will be sent home on Oct. 30th

I sincerely hope that the school year has started in a positive way for you and your family. All of us here at West are totally committed to helping your child reach and exceed his or her academic potential. As long as the lines of communication remain open between the school and the home, the sky is the limit for our students. Please help us to maintain a positive relationship at all times. We want to work with you and for you in order to help your child succeed. Open communication between the school and the home, along with the hard work and determined effort on the part of students, is the formula for success that never fails.
