News From the Principal
The end of the first quarter is upon us. We are almost finished with all bus, fire and disaster drills. All students have been tested in our Discovery Education system and teachers have routines for the classroom well established.
Here are a few dates in October for you to put on your calendar for West activities.
· The 1st is Picture Day.
· There is no school on the 9th (teacher institute) and the 12th (Columbus Day)
· The 21st is a 11:45 early dismissal day
· The 23rd is the end of 1st quarter and report cards will be sent home on Oct. 29th
· Our Fall Festivities and Fall Parties are on Friday, October 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.
Please look at our “October News” orange flyer that went home with your child. It gives detailed information on our Red Ribbon Week activities and themes. If you should have any further questions, please don’t hesitate in giving us a call.

Our PTA helps in providing snacks for our after school tutoring program and snacks for each student during PARCC testing. They also provide assemblies and financial support for our Fall Festivities and Field Day. From boots, mittens and hat drives to dances and assemblies, we appreciate all the little details our PTA does to make our school a special place to be!Our doors open at 8:15 a.m. Students dropped off before that time are unsupervised and not allowed in the building. At 8:15, breakfast is served and students can sit in the gym if they are not eating breakfast. Students are sent to classrooms at 8:35. Anyone arriving after that time can go directly to class. We begin school promptly at 8:45 a.m.
