Busy, busy, busy!
February has been a difficult month. The “Flu Bug” hit hard. Students and staff, including substitutes, felt the aches and pains of the flu. Now, as February nears the end, and I am writing this, we are dealing with ICE! Where is SPRING???
March is just around the corner. The 3rd Quarter ends on Friday, March 2nd. Grade Cards will go home on Friday, March 9th. Spring Break is the week of March 19th – 23rd. Kindergarten Round-Up is Tuesday, March 27th, from 9:00 – 11:00 AM. If you have a child that will be entering Kindergarten in the fall, please come to Westphalia, with your child, on March 27th! We are looking forward to meeting all of our upcoming Kindergarten students!
We begin State Assessments in March, so the teachers are preparing the students for them. This year the format of the assessments is a little different – each test area is only 2 days. This makes the process less stressful for everyone!
As always, thank you for your support of your children, the teachers, the staff, and the administration. Westphalia is a strong team because of your support! Please feel free to drop in or call anytime. We always want to hear your concerns, so we can work together to make things better!
