Get Ready to Read!

Did you know that children can lose up to 3 months of academic progress over one summer vacation?  Reading a minimum of 6 books can help maintain reading levels while school is out of session.  West is having a Summer Reading Club to help our students stay reading this summer!  What is Summer Reading Club? A place to receive reading support from a mentor and FREE books to keep your student reading all summer long!  West’s reading club will be on Tuesday evenings from 6:30pm-7:30pm starting on June 12 and ending on August 7.  There will not be club on Tuesday July 3 due to the 4th of July Holiday.  Everyone is invited, but students less than 9 years old must come with an adult.  Thank you!

What’s Happening at West

Our Girls on the Run team doing a Community Impact Project on a rainy day of no practice! The girls did an awesome job decorating lunch bags for Kids Hope.  They should feel proud- they came up with some really positive messages.
