PE Twice Weekly Petition
This school year, students at Westowne have physical education twice a week. Next year, PE may be reduced to once weekly and replaced with a second vocal music or art class. Many families believe that continuing to offer a greater amount of gym time is beneficial for our children's learning, attention, and behavior. If you agree, consider signing this petition to let our administration know that we prefer to keep PE twice weekly at Westowne.
Box Tops Raffle
Keep clipping Box Tops over Spring Break. Each completed "Score One for Your School" collection sheet turned in by Wednesday, April 15th will enter students in a raffle for a $10 Barnes and Noble gift card. If you need extra copies, please print them from the attachment.
