Fall Sports Kick-off After Labor Day

Fall sports kick off next week and for the first time ever – all students will be able to attend free of charge. There will also be concessions for sale at all games. So come out and cheer on your fellow Blue Jays.

Garden Club

Garden Club is responsible for planting and maintaining the school garden. We also explore creative ways to use plants–both those we grow and those we find around campus–in cooking and crafting.

Meets: Thursdays, 4-5 PM, starting September 8, 2022

Sponsor/Teacher: Will Sanford (former West End parent and long-time garden coordinator/maintainer)

Great turnout for Open House

It was so nice to see so many students and their families at Open House last week. Thanks to everyone that took the time to stop by, meet our teachers, and tour our classrooms. Dozens of parents got to see how their kids spend the day at school.

Our Big Bluey Thrift was also a big hit. Students were able to pick out some vintage West Wear free of charge. Our goal is to expand to other gently used clothing as well. So stay tuned for more information on that in the coming weeks.

Open House was also the official launch of our 2022 “Invest in West” campaign. Invest is the PTSO’s primary fundraiser of the year. Our goal is to raise $19k to help support teachers and staff.

Don’t Forget Open House

We are so excited to welcome back our Blue Jay families this week for Open House. Join us on Thursday, August 25th from 5:30pm – 7pm. You’ll hear from Mr. Stephens and then get a chance to meet your student’s teachers and see their classrooms.

You’ll also be able to grab some new West Wear, tell us what you think about our new Big Bluey Thrift store (for West Wear and other clothes your kids have outgrown) and even pick up one of our new “West is Best” yard signs.

Can’t wait to see everyone there!
