HPS Podcast 4.8

This week, we talk with OCSN Reps Lauren Gray and Mallory Timmer about the Power H Shop, a new resource available to all HPS Families.

A grand Opening Open House for the Power H Shop will be held on Wedenesday, October 5, 4-6pm at Longfellow School (24th and State).

Count Day!

Being at school every day is important, but the state designates two days out of the school calendar year to determine school funding, and tomorrow is the first of two days. 

If your child is absent please be sure to call the office in the morning and leave a message with the necessary information as you normally would.

We appreciate your help in making this count day at West a success. 

Attendance matters every day! 

Spooktacular Reading Night!

Join us Thursday, October 27 from 5-7pm for the West Reading Spooktacular
