Dear Westside Elementary Family,

Happy Monday! We have a wonderful week ahead, all Westside students will be participating in Hour of Code this week during their library times. Thank you to our parent volunteers for supporting this initiative, while our librarian position is vacant. Parent volunteers is a highlight of our campus, your support of your child’s learning experiences is abundant on campus. We are thankful for all your time and commitment to all our Rockets!

Westside’s Annual Science Night is this Thursday from 5:00 - 7:00. Last year this night was a huge success with several hands on learning experiences. Each year this event grows and becomes more interactive. This year we have a traveling planetarium on campus and all Science Fair Entries will be on display for viewing on Main Street! Thank you to our amazing Science Night Team: Ms. Schram, Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Tovar, Mrs. Montgomery, and Mrs. D’Mello for working all year to plan an awesome event this Thursday! We hope you can bring your family to join us for a wonderful event!

Finally, we want to take the time to say thank you to Grace Barber-Jordan and all other trustees for their service to Leander ISD School Board. This January is School Board appreciation month and we honor our trustees for their commitment to our district! All trustees will be recognized by individual campuses and Westside will be recognizing Mrs. Barber-Jordan this month!

Have a wonderful week Westside!

Hour of Code
At Westside, with the help of the Librarian and parent volunteers, students have used their library time in December for Hour of Code. We have found that some students independently continued with these projects after the introductory week. We plan to host Hour of Code during the week of January 13-17, 2020.

Cold/Hot Weather Guidelines
Leander ISD sets weather guidelines each year. With the recent cold fronts lowering temperatures below freezing and noticing not all of our kids are coming to school with jackets, we have decided to be more cautious with the guidelines we put in place.
