Principal's Points

APRIL 14, 2014

Principal’s Points

Today 2nd grader Emma Michael is our Principal for the Day. We understand she runs a tight ship! 

As a reminder, this Friday, April 18 is a make-up day for one of the days we missed school due to the icy weather. We shifted our Early Dismissal Day to that same day. School will dismiss at 12:15 p.m. 

Last Monday we sent home a form with our Kinder through 4th grade students entitled “See You in September”. Please let us know as soon as possible if your child will not return to West U next year. We are in the process of interviewing prospective teachers. Our school enrollment for next year will determine how many classes we have at West U and whether or not we need to hire new teachers. 

Thanks to the Discount Tire on 59 & Kirby for donating new tires to our veteran crossing guard Mr. Raymond. One of our moms took him up there after Mr. Raymond had a flat. They noticed the condition of his tires, heard about his dedication to our kids, and donated new tires for his truck. We appreciate their recognition of a fine senior citizen. 

Next week is our big week for STAAR testing. Please see the calendar for the dates for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. 


Have a remarkable week!

 PTO President’s Column

Science Night was a great event! It was the perfect end to our curriculum enrichment evenings for the school year. Thanks to Anu Venkataraman, Carrie Obenland and their committee for all their hard work. 

Last week at the PTO meeting, we voted in the new slate for next year’s Executive Board. We have a great group of leadership. Thanks to all who volunteer to help our school. 

In the next month, the PTO will be making a budget for the next school year. If you have noticed any improvements that can be made around school, please consider submitting a budget request. We value your input! Please contact Paula Kekish if you have any questions. 


Thanks for your support. Please contact me with any questions. Have a great week.
