News from West Hills

Dear West Hills School Community,

We had a busy week at West Hills with clubs starting up. Please know that it is not too late for your children to join a club. At this point, students can just show up at clubs they are interested in trying out. Our current offerings can be accessed at the following link, CLUBS. Over the years, we have found clubs to be an excellent way for students to build lasting connections!  

Additionally, one of my favorite days occurred today when our fourth and fifth-grade students welcomed family and friends to share lunch with them. The smiles and energy always make me smile! Please know if schedules prevented you from attending, no child eats alone at West Hills, and we did our best as a group to include all children in our greater West Hills family.

Next week, we will have a representative from Gleaners present to our whole student body in recognition of Make a Difference Day. Please see the article below with details on how you can support efforts to stamp out hunger in our region. One dollar feeds an individual for a day!

Finally, please don't forget that on Monday, October 14, 2019, we have a half-day. Students will be released at 11:35 a.m.
