• Dear Parents,

    I want to thank parents, Nicole Wymore and Denice Bukovansky, for coordinating the Chair Affair Auction during the month of November. They spent an incredible amount of time preparing for this event. I also want to thank our parents and community members who attended and supported this auction. The Chair Affair raised approximately $24,000 after expenses, which is phenomenal! The money received will go towards supporting the artist in residence program at Westside Elementary from January on, where each class will have the opportunity to work with two local artists. The artists are coordinating with the classroom teachers to integrate art with the subject matter being taught in the classroom, all the while working on a piece of art to take home.
     
    The arrival of winter brings along the possibility of school delays or closures. Please click on the link below for the procedures we follow when we are faced with a delay or closure.

    I would like to give a shout out to our parents and community for the awesome support of our school, which has a direct impact on the climate and success of our students. May you all enjoy your friends and family over the upcoming holiday break!
     
    Sincerely,
