Box Tops for Education
The next submission to Box Tops for Education will be at the end of February. See the attached collection sheet for a fun drawing to win a Five Below gift card. The homeroom class that submits the most Box Tops will win an end of year party. The top homeroom classes are: Ms. Rees, Ms. Jones, and Ms. Robey. Special thanks to Westowne alumni who continue to send their Box Tops to us and teachers who have created their own collection sheets. We love your school spirit!
Save the date! Hot Skates will open just for Westowne families and friends. This evening is a social event for our school community, not a fundraiser.
