Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year! We’re looking forward to another exemplary year at West U Elementary! Today’s Monday Folder contains an enormous amount of information in what we call our “1st Day Packet”. Even though it may seem a little overwhelming, please take the time to read everything carefully. Please pay particular attention to the General Parent Information, Dress Code, Traffic and Parking Plan, and other important documents contained within the packet. This packet can be found on our web page in one PDF file.
If you can’t find the answer to a question, please ask. A large school such as ours can be a bit intimidating for parents new to our school particularly if you came from a small private school. It’s OK to ask questions. We promise we don’t bite!
Also included in today’s Monday Folder are two color sheets. One sheet is the Texas Education Agency 2014 Accountability Summary for West U. As you can see, our school achieved the highest level of distinctions and achievement for an elementary school. The second sheet is a pie chart indicating where our 2013-2014 5th Graders are attending middle school.
At the time of this writing, our enrollment stands at 1,265 with the vast majority of our children living within our school zone. That’s the good news; that our community chooses our wonderful West U Elementary. We are humbled by their and your trust and will work diligently to maintain the high performance everyone has come to expect from West U.
This Friday is College Colors Day. You can read more about it later on in today’s Pony Express or go to http://www.collegecolorsday.com to read about this nationwide program to encourage children to attend colleges and universities.
That’s it for now! I’m sure 2014-2015 will be another great year.
