  • Teacher of the Month- Please join me in congratulating Cathy Nunnally as our October Teacher of the Month!!

    Post-Fall Break- I believe we would all agree that Fall Break came at just the right time!  With that said, I hope all of our families had a wonderful break.  Additionally, it gave us a great opportunity to have the entire building cleaned from top to bottom to ensure that our Bulldogs were returning to a safe and clean learning environment. 

    COVID Update – As we continue through the 1st semester we actively monitor our COVID protocols.  To date, there have not been any significant changes in student protocols; however, we have adjusted some of our faculty/staff protocols to ensure the safety of all individuals.  To provide some comfort, I’d like to share that we are still making this a priority in everything we do; being a parent of two myself, coupled with having both of my parents in their 70’s, we strive to make this the safest and most impactful learning environment we can. 

    West Spirit Night– Our amazing PTO has scheduled a fun-filled evening at Marco’s Pizza October 13th from 4-9PM.  Please inform them that you are with West Elementary both for dine-in, carry-out, and delivery orders.

    House Update- Every student at West will be placed in a House, you may see/hear something about them from time to time.  For more information about tokens and our House philosophy, feel free to refer to your child’s agenda for more info.

    Save the Date – Tuesday, November 3rd will be a district-wide stockpile day.  Students will not be attending school on this day.
