West Park Friday Afternoon Parent Update 6/11/2021
Greetings, WPE families!
The beautiful weather matched the sunny adventures of our students this week. Our second graders had the chance to meet a Bee Keeper Field Expert and explore pollinators through our collaboration with GoL!, GARNA and C4. It made for an exceptionally enriching experience!
In addition, last Friday we were able to give our graduating seniors a send-off which was very special. It was the last time these seniors may have had the chance to walk through our WPE hallways- we wish them the very best of luck in their bright futures!
*If your mailing address and/or cell phone information has changed or will be changing, please let the front office know. We will be mailing out registration packets with teacher assignment letters in early July. We need this information to get to you safely and we often use text-based reminders during the busy summer months! The WPE office number is 719-486-6890.
*Virtual parents – please return your child’s device on or before June 17th. We are excited to invite all students back to in-person learning in August. There will be no virtual programming for students next year at our school.
*As the end of the year approaches, please know that we will have small, class-based celebrations that teachers are planning among the grade levels. Out of an abundance of caution, these will be held within the classroom and on a class by class basis, not as a whole group. Only students and teachers will be at these celebrations. We look forward to having our regular, school-wide celebrations next year! The teachers are planning a special ceremony, and each student will get an item to remember the year by to take home and share with their parents.

Kathleen Fitzsimmons and the entire WPE team!
