Westy Families! Welcome to 2019! We are excited to begin the new year with our friends here at WHES! Just a few updates to share.


*We will be hosting a "Math Curriculum Informational Night" on Jan. 9 (see attached flier).

*We also sent home fliers (in back packs prior to break) about the new and exciting offerings through a partnership with the Community Arts Center (see attached flier).

*Just a reminder, we will NOT have school on Jan. 21 (teacher in-service).

*Family Movie Night (PTO) will be held on January 25. Doors open at 6 p.m.; show starts at 7 p.m.

*Report cards will go home on Jan. 25.

*Kindergarten Registration will be held on Feb. 19 and 20. If you know of anyone who has a child who will be 5 years old by September 1 of next school year, please encourage them to register their child for kindergarten! Official registration will take place on Feb. 19 and 20 from 9-2 p.m. We need to get an accurate count of how many kindergarten kiddos to expect for next year (so that we know how many kindergarten classes to prepare to have in place). Please help to get the word out to families who have children who will need to register for kindergarten for next year. Thank you in advance for your support!


I hope that 2019 brings all of your families many blessings!
