______________________________________Westy Snack Pack Program
Thank you SO much for helping us to fill our Westy Snack Packs! Your donations have been steady and plenty! We are so fortunate to have such generous families in our district. Our Westy Snack Pack cupboards are now filled to the top. We have enough food to send home with our 'snack packers' for a while. We will let you know when our cupboards become low and will send out another request for assistance in filling the Westy Snack Packs, until then, we don't have a lot of room to store many more donations (which is a good problem to have, I would say!). Thank you again for helping us to get this program off of the ground with such success!
A special "Westy Shout Out" to Miss Petyak, Mrs. Shoff, Mrs. Shorto, Mrs. Hobbs, Mrs. Thomas and Mrs. Glessner for organizing the snack packs. We'd also like to send a special "Westy Shout Out" to the Cub Scout Pack #217 for donating to our cause, as well. The boys collected over 800 individual items for the snack packs! Way to go, boys!
What wonderful things happen when our Westy Family pulls together....your support has been amazing! THANK YOU!
Outdoors for SURE! The Westmont Hilltop Elementary School is making an effort to help our students to spend as many recess days as possible Outdoors, for SURE!
As the Fall weather is approaching, please remember to send a jacket to school with your child. Students will be having recess outside (unless it is raining). We all know that studies have shown that it is important for children to get physical activity during the day. While children can certainly socialize and relax during inside recess, it just isn't likely that inside recess will provide our kiddos with the opportunity to be physically active, to get fresh air and to use up some of their energy so that they can better focus on academics during the rest of the school day.
Please remember to send your child to school with outerwear appropriate for the weather so that all of our children can enjoy being outside during recess.
Please reach out to me if your child is in need of a winter coat, hat, gloves or boots, as we can assist families in need with those items. We want all of our students to be able to enjoy the benefits of being "Outdoors for SURE!"
