Dear Westside Elementary Family,

We have lots of excitement building up today for our 2nd Annual Apex Rocket Run. Your child will be bringing home their Apex Badge tonight on a lanyard. Please read my “Apex Principal’s Newsletter,” below for more information. Our students will engage in leadership lessons each day leading up to the Rocket Run, which will be held on Thursday, February 27th. If you would like to volunteer on our Rocket Run day, please click here. Each classroom needs about 3 volunteers.

Westside has two major fundraisers each year. The first was our Fall Write A Check and the second is the Apex Rocket Run. Our Write A Check fundraiser helped support the purchase of an instructional easel for each classroom so that teachers could maximize the new Language Arts resources with our kids.

Our Apex Rocket Run supports Student Enrichment Programs, which include: Leader In Me resources for our teachers and students (annual membership), Field Trips, Inspire Experiences (new this year), Author Visits, Science Night, and other community events for our families to engage in. These opportunities are not possible without a strong community partnership with the school and Westside PTA. Our goal is to stay aligned to our campus mission of “Leading, Growing, and Inspiring,” each year. Through intentional alignment we are able to maintain and grow our campus leadership culture and continue to provide exceptional learning opportunities for our kids.

Thank you for helping our campus in bringing our Westside mission to life!

Have a great week,

Amanda Lillard
