Dear Westside Elementary Family,

We are so excited that the construction team has broken ground on our sunshades. You will quickly notice several safety features put up to ensure a clear barrier between our play area and the construction site. All entrances to the construction site will be padlocked each night and orange fencing is up to divide our field. In addition, we have begun using cones to stop through traffic in the back area of our school during the school day. This allows for us to establish safe crossing paths for our students. Cones will be moved each day at 2:15 to allow for the Car Rider and Bus Rider pick up lines to begin.

Did you know that our school has an Inspire Wall in our Westside Library? Last year we began truly exploring what it means to inspire our self, our community, and our world. We have begun the year with celebrating important scholars. You will notice our Inspire Wall is set up to spark student interest in discovering inspirational people and events around our world. Currently we have displayed important scholars such as: Johannes Gutenberg, Louis Pasteur, Marie Curie, Antoine Lavoisier, Zhang Heng, George Washington Carver to name a few. Students are able to check out books about these people and events to continue their learning beyond our campus. Teachers and the librarian will be using this wall to guide research and instruction all year long. We hope you enjoy it as much as we are!

Have a wonderful week,
Amanda Lillard
