Westwood Families and Community -

Welcome back! As Fall approaches, we are off to a great start with students and staff settling into the routines of a new school year. It has been fun to reconnect with all of the returning kids, meet our new group of kindergarteners, and welcome many new students who have added so much to our school already. Everyone has done an amazing job to start the year, even having the patience to stay off of the new playground for the first two days of school as safety inspections were completed! Thank you all for a great start!

Below are updates regarding upcoming events at Westwood:

Picture Day - Tomorrow, September 19 is individual picture day. Order forms went home last Thursday but if you need another hard copy, stop by our office, or you can order online at with the picture ID # LS228041Q0

Safety Week, September 17-21 - This week is our safety week. Each day we are focusing on a specific drill. Teachers are leading classroom discussions that are then followed by a walkthrough of the drill. The goal of this week is to ensure each student and staff member knows what to do in case of an emergency as early in the year as possible. You can help us by talking with your child about the importance of safety drills at school.

Open House, September 27 @ 6:30 PM - Join us at Open House to hear about all of the great things that are happening at Westwood and the vision for the new year! We will start in the gym at 6:30 PM for a welcome and then will break out into classrooms to hear from our teachers. PTO will be providing treats for kids! All are welcome! Hope to see you there!

Skate Night - Join us for our first skate night of the year on October 11 from 6-8 PM.

Once again, thank you all for a great start. Your partnership in making Westwood the best place possible for our kids is invaluable and the difference maker in making our school great.
