West Chester Elementary News    

By: Emily Brown     

    Congratulations to the following boys and girls for having rockin’ behavior last week: Kevin Burton, Bentley Butler, Andrew Jacobs, Chelsea Mathias, Miley Cupples, Evie Warren, Tessa Rhea, Callie Harvey, Caleb Moss, Maggie Hopper, Stephen Jennings, Taylor McDaniel, Karsyn Knipper, Lillie Swope, David Hampton, and Abbie Neely. Congratulations to these classes that had perfect attendance every day last week: Lisa Scott’s first grade, Heather Bates’ second grade, Kelly Crowe’s second grade, and Hayley Cloud’s third grade.  

     Tuesday was Principal’s Day.  We would like to say “thank you” to Mrs. Amy Wooley, our principal.  Mrs. Amy works so hard to make our school the wonderful place that it is and we truly appreciate all that she does for our students, faculty, and staff.  Please remember Mrs. Amy Frye’s husband, Troy, in your prayers as he was recently diagnosed with cancer and has started his treatments. Also, please continue to remember Mrs. Crystal Rowsey, her unborn son, and her family as she remains in the hospital.  We love you, Mrs. Amy and Mrs. Crystal! Mrs. Emily Brown is back in the library and Mrs. Jill Bland will be filling in for Mrs. Crystal for the remainder of the school year.

    Our PTO officers sent home a note regarding Teacher Appreciation Week which will be May 7th-10th.  The officers have asked that instead of parents cooking and bringing food items that they instead send money to provide our teachers/staff with a catered meal each day from a local restaurant.  The PTO officers will take care of ordering and setting up the meals each day. There is not a set amount they are asking you to send, just what you have normally spent preparing your dish. They hope this is easier on everyone!  Please send the money in an envelop or Ziplock bag labeled “PTO Teacher Appreciation Meal.” Money needs to be sent in by Wednesday, May 2nd to allow enough time to prepare the meal plans. Thank you in advance for helping us show our appreciation to our teachers and staff at West Chester!  Our recent fundraiser was a big success and those items were picked up last Thursday. We appreciate our families working so hard to raise funds for our school.

    Parents please remember that if you ever have any questions or concerns regarding school matters, you may contact the school by calling the school office, emailing your child’s teacher, or by sending a note with your child.  Also, please check folders and return them each day so that you are always informed. Remember...Everyday at West is “rocking” because our faculty, staff, and students strive to be Respectful, Orderly, Cooperative, and Kind!
