Principal's Notes:

Hello West Community,
It has been a busy summer here at the West, getting everything ready for the upcoming school year.  We cannot wait for the year begin, and are excited about welcoming in our new fourth grade class and our returning fifth graders.  Lots of information will be coming home with your children on the first few days of school, and I ask that you take the time to go over everything carefully before sending it back in.  I know it may seem redundant, but we rely on your updated information to keep our data system current, so I appreciate your time and effort in this task.  Bus routes for the upcoming school year will be posted on the district website the week before school begins.

Mark your calendars for the following important dates:

Monday, August 25th, 2014, 4:15 PM-5:15 PM the West will be open for self-guided tours for parents and children new to the school.  You will be able to walk throughout the building on your own to familiarize yourselves with the layout.  This is not our open house, but a courtesy to families whose children have not yet attended the West.

Tuesday, August 26, 2014-Thursday, Aug 28, 2014-regular, full school days

Friday, August 29-Monday September 1-NO SCHOOL

Thursday, September 4, 6:00-7:00 PM West Intermediate School Open House- Specific details will be distributed directly to students and via email and postings here on the website.

Teacher supply lists are posted through a link at the top of the page. 

I hope you fully enjoy the remainder of your summer vacation.  If you need to reach me for any reason, call the West at 978-694-6050 and leave a message, or send me an email at
Dennis.Shaw@wilmington.k12.ma.us and I will get back to you as quickly as possible.  Thanks, and I will see you all soon!

Dennis Shaw


General Mills Box Tops for Education

Great news everyone! Clipping and sending in the box top labels from your favorite brands helps earn money for the West. The spring submission of labels earned $268.00 for the West. Thanks to all of you who clipped and contributed labels for this great effort. The West netted over $500 this year from Boxtops!

Don't forget, when you shop online through the Box Tops Marketplace at your favorite retailer, a percentage of the qualifying purchase can be automatically credited to the West. Also, The Reading Room is a partnership with Barnes & Noble that lets you earn money for the West when you shop online. Please visit their website for more details.

Thank you again for your help and support with this program.
