Teacher Appreciation Week
With your help, we celebrated Westowne's faculty and staff throughout the week. Thanks to the many who helped run events, donated supplies, and brought in heartfelt gifts.
Teacher Appreciation Week wraps up with snacks today. Then tomorrow morning, we'll serve breakfast at 8:00 thanks to a generous donation from Panera Bread. We'll top it all off with a gift card raffle for the teachers.
Join us next Tuesday, May 9th at 7:00 for the final PTA meeting this school year. Special guest, Delegate Pat Young, will join us to share highlights from the recent legislative session. Agenda topics will also include the 5th Grade Recognition Ceremony and how you can help the PTA serve our community next year. The meeting is held in the library, so please enter the building through the courtyard at the rear of the school.
Pajama Day and Movie Night
On Friday, May 12th, all students can show their school pride by wearing their PJs to school. This month, our pajama alternative is Island Vacation! Dress like you’re heading to a party on the beach. Please remember to wear shoes and shirts.
And then plan to join us that evening at 6:00 for the last pizza and movie night this school year. See Moana (PG), a family friendly adventure about a girl who saves her island community. Admission is free. Bring blankets to picnic in the gym. We will have pizza, drinks, and snacks for sale.
