Virtual 4th Grade Family Orientation Slideshow

The faculty of West Hills looks forward to welcoming our third-grade families to our school next year. Given the limits of our current environment, Mr. Gignac and Mr. Durecka have created a slideshow complete with narration to help with the upcoming fall transition to West Hills. Additionally, we have met with third-grade classrooms to answer the questions of our current Lone Pine third grade students. Not surprisingly, these meetings with third-grade students are some of our favorite meetings each year. Their questions are so thoughtful! 

Please review the video slide show, and should you have additional questions, please join us on Tuesday evening for an online questions and answers session. Meeting details can be found in the separate news article below.
