Principal's Notes:

Hello West Community,

I canít believe that Fall is here! We truly have had a great first month.  Students are acclimated to their teachers, our expectations, and the regular routines of the building.  One area where I could use some help is securing some parent volunteers to work with students in the school store.  It is only open on Fridays during both lunches. Each classroom operates the store for several weeks until all of the students in that room have had a chance to work.  If you do volunteer, we can make sure that your child is also assigned to the same day.  If you are interested, please send me an email at dennis.shaw@wpsk12.com.  Thanks!  

We kick the season off with our annual corn-shucking day. West fourth graders shuck corn which will be served at both the West and Shawsheen schools as part of Farm-to-School Week.  Later in October, we will again have our Wilmington Education Foundation (WEF) Walk.  It will be on October 31st at the West, with each grade walking laps around the building, recess yard, and parking lot for 20-30 minutes. Grade 5 will walk from 9:10-9:30 and Grade 4 will walk from 9:40-10:00. We also expect the Boutwell students to join us at some point, which is always extra fun for us. This is our biggest school fundraiser of the year.  The West will receive 50% of what we raise to use directly in the building.  Think about it, if each child is able to get sponsored for $20, we would be able to raise over $5,000, half of which would go to the WEF and half to the West, which we could use in many ways to enhance our studentís experiences here. Please be sure to Ďsponsorí your child in this fun event!

Thank you!

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.
