FastBridge Reports for Reading and Math

During the months of September and October, students took an online assessment called FastBridge.  4th and 5th-grade students carried the Fastbridge reports home today and 6th-8th will bring the reports home on Monday. Please know this one single score does not represent your student, rather it is one data point that allows us to celebrate learning and further develop learning goals together. It allows teachers and families to know what kind of teaching each student needs to help them grow, both individually and as a part of the whole class.

Winter Recess Guidelines Reminder

West Hills holds an outdoor recess daily unless it is raining or temperatures drop below 10 degrees (or 10 degrees wind chill). It is essential that students arrive at school with appropriate winter weather play gear—warm coats, hats, gloves, scarves, snow pants, and other warm clothing. We recommend that all gear be clearly labeled with the student's first and last name.

Defeat the Label's Upstander Program

This year marks our sixth year partnering with Defeat the Label delivering the Upstander Program to all of our sixth-grade students. The Upstander curriculum provided by Defeat Label, along with expert facilitation, is helpful in building a school community with a common vocabulary aimed at giving our kids the tools necessary to recognize bullying and take action to eliminate it.

West Hills is a Nut Restricted School

Please remember that nuts of all kinds are restricted at West Hills because of students with severe and life-threatening allergies. The restriction is in effect in the entire building and at all times, including the school day, after school, evenings and weekends.

West Hills Middle School became a nut-restricted school in January of 2010. As a result, please carefully read and review all food packaging prior to sending food items to school. For further information on food allergies, consult www.foodallergy.org. We appreciate in advance your full cooperation.
