For the 2022-2023 school year:

Based on it being a popular choice in our survey, we have arranged a fall family fun outing with The Pumpkin Hollow again. It is next Monday, October 17th from 4-6 pm. You do not need to pay until you arrive on Monday, but please RSVP this week if you plan to attend so that they can plan on how many of us to expect. See the attached flyer for full details on the group deal they set up for us or you can get directly to our RSVP Google Form here.

We have a rough draft of the 2022-2023 student directory and are working on getting that finalized this month. Please submit your family information through our Google Form by the end of this week if you want to be included. You can choose what information you want to share. For new parents, this directory is used to help find your children’s classmates’ contact information for planning playdates and birthday parties and other social events. Once completed, it will be hosted on ParentSquare for easy access. We only have about 200 entries so far, so could use more participation to make it more helpful for all the families that will want to use it.

Picture days occurred at Walberta Park on Thursday the 6th and at Cherry Road on Tuesday the 11th. Be sure to get your orders in for your child’s photos at bjkphotos.com if you want to order and have not done so already.

Along with the spirit wear that everyone is encouraged to wear on Warrior Friday’s the staff gets some extra attention behind the scenes. Typically WEST does our big staff appreciation event during the month of May, but the school superintendent reached out to WEST and other groups associated with the school and encouraged us all to consider spreading our appreciation throughout the year. After discussing and approving the idea in our September meeting WEST was able to “sponsor” the Warrior Friday that just occurred on October 7th. It allowed us to show our appreciation for teachers and staff at all four of the Westhill buildings!

We have initial permission from the school district to once again plan a Turkey Trot on the morning of Wednesday, November 23rd at the high school track. Please save the date.
Third and fourth graders will have a chance to sign up for this year’s Rubik’s Cube Club soon. The club will be held before school on one Wednesday a month starting in November.

Please note that this is the final time we intend to use our 2021-2022 school year mailing list. For you parents whose youngest students have moved on to OHMS or those of you who have moved out of the district, we hope your children are off to great starts in their new adventure! We are including you a final time so you have a chance to see our gratitude for all that you made possible to end the school year. (The Water Carnival, Field Days and end of year ceremonies would not be the same without WEST funds and volunteers. Field trips would not be possible without WEST funds.) We are attaching our June/September newsletter as a way to emphasize all that you made possible. 

For those families who still have students in Walberta Park or Cherry Road School, please make sure you take the time (if you have not already) to sign up for our 2022-2023 school year mailing list. We refresh our lists every year so need you to take the step to give us your information and explicitly opt in again.

You can get to our email list form, our student directory form and our volunteer interest form here: westhillparent.org/forms/
