March 2018

Westwood Families and Community -

Happy March! Spring is almost here and signs of new growth are on display outside of Westwood and inside! Much like the flowers, this is the time of year where students start to take-off with their learning! It is very exciting to see.

The following is an update regarding current events at Westwood.

Read Across Westwood March 7 - Join us this Wednesday, from 6:00 - 7:30 PM, for a night of read alouds, cookies and milk, raffles and the book fair. This will be a fun night, focused on reading and the joys of reading!

Book Fair this Week, March 5-9 - All this week, we will have a book fair in our library. Students will have a designated time to buy books with their classroom during the day. Children can also purchase books starting Wednesday at lunch recess. Thank you for supporting our book fair. The proceeds go to new books for our school’s library.

Leprechaun Leap Dance March 16 - Each year Westwood has a visiting leprechaun that makes himself known by triggering our surveillance cameras, leaving candy and making mischief in some of our classrooms. This year, PTO is hosting the Leprechaun Leap dance on March 16 from 6:30 to 8 PM. Join us for music, crafts, food and more. Admission is free but please consider donating to our backpack program.

Kindergarten Orientation March 22 - It is time to start the registration process for incoming kindergarten students. If you have a child who will be turning five by August 31 and lives in the Westwood boundary, please attend our Kindergarten orientation on March 22 at 6:30 PM.

No School March 23 - March 23 will be a nonschool day if we do not have a snow day between now and then.

Attendance H.E.R.O’s - One of our goals if for each student to be an Attendance HERO. HERO stands for Here Everyday Ready On time. Thank you for your help in ensuring school is a priority. Even as young as kindergarten, there is a direct link to school success and high school graduation with regular school attendance.

Thank you parents for your support. In partnership we can build an amazing school where students grow, learn, and love school.
