West Park Friday Afternoon Parent Update 5/7/2021
*WPE will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, May 12 from 4-7pm. It is a time for parents to come into the building, informally walk through, and see the work on the walls and get a sense of where your child has been all year, as well as time for community members to visit WPE “one last time” before her demolition in June. Please spread the word to past WPE students and families. A paper copy of the attached invitation was sent home with your child this week.
A few reminders:
*Please ensure that your children leave all toys at home. Checking your child’s backpack each morning is very helpful to make sure our students are set up to focus all day at school.
*Please continue to send warm clothes for outside recess as the weather changes quickly.
*Please continue to send a water bottle every day.
*Please continue to send your child with their completed health screener. We have many students who do not arrive with a health screener paper; we hope to get students to class quickly and avoid congestion at our doorways. If you need more screener papers, please contact your child’s teacher to send more home.
*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.
