Westmont News

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout-outs. Please check back often, and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Wildcats of the Week

Each week, we pick two students for displaying excellence in one of our character traits. This week, we chose Charllotte Berglund and Michael Quinn as the Wildcats of the week. Congratulations Charllotte and Michael, and keep up the great work!

Grandparent Holiday

Westmont Elementary cordially invites grandparents (or a special someone) to visit our students. This special event is on Thursday, December 21 from 12:15 p.m. until 1:00 p.m. Please see the grandparent holiday flyer at the end of our newsletter.

Winter Break

Winter break is on Monday, December 25 through Friday, January 5. School resumes on Monday, January 8. We wish you and your families a very happy holiday season! 

Holiday Book Exchange

Westmont students will be participating in a holiday book exchange before leaving for winter break. We are asking for families and community members to please consider donating used books to our event. Students can bring in as many or as few books as they'd like to donate. All students will select books sometime during the week before break. Our hope is that each student will leave for break with one or two books to add to their home library! Please drop off donations to the office by December 15. Thank you!

Cold Weather

As the weather continues to get colder, please make sure that you dress your children properly for the anticipated weather. Your child should have their coat, hat, pants, and a pair of warm gloves. We have a very limited amount of cold weather clothing here at school, and we would very much appreciate you sending your children in the appropriate clothing.

Box Tops

Remember to clip and save box tops during the entire school year! Ask parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends to clip box tops for you to help raise money for our school. For each box top collected, the school will receive $.10 cents. The PTO uses this money to buy needed supplies, fund programs, fund improvements around the school, and help support our teacher's classroom expenses. Every box top collected helps! Please send clipped box tops to school with your child. Each classroom receives rewards for every 250 box tops collected. Currently Mrs. Johnson's first grade classroom has collected the most box tops this school year! Keep on clipping!
