West Chester Elementary News    

By: Emily Brown     



   West Chester would like to welcome everyone back to school!  We hope that you all had a wonderful summer. There are going to be some new faces this year at West and we would like to welcome them: Andrea Murley, custodian; Angie Evans, Sherry Cook, and Phyllis Morphis, assistants.  Miss Kristen Wilkins will be filling in for Mrs. Melissa Hooker while she is on maternity leave. Mrs. Melissa and her husband, Josh, recently welcomed a new baby girl, Melody, who is absolutely precious! Also, Mrs. Anita Ross will be joining us some as Mrs. Crystal spends more time with baby Milo.       

    Several exciting things have happened recently with our West Chester family!  Mrs. Emily Brown and Mr. Deven Hearn received their 20 years of service pins recently at our county-wide inservice.  Also, Mr. Deven, Mrs. Misty Hall, and Mrs. Kelly Crowe were selected as Hometown Heroes, an honor sponsored by Modern Woodman.  Several of our West Chester girls returned just in time for school after representing Tennessee in the Dixie Youth Softball World Series.  Congratulations to these West girls: Shelbie Cross, Makenah Carnell, Emma Easley, Leura Rowsey, Brinkley Hall, and Oliva Paton. We are so proud of these girls who are not only great students, but great softball players!  

    Morning car riders are dropped off at the front door.  If it is before 7:30 a.m., students will report to the gym.  Breakfast is provided every morning until 7:50. Lunch prices are 40 cents for reduced and $2.00 for full priced.  In the afternoon, please make sure that you have your car rider tags visible. Kindergarten and first grade load by the gym double doors and second and third grade load at the back.  We ask that you not be on your cell phone while in car rider line for the safety of our children and employees who are walking them out. If you need to make transportation changes, please do so by sending a note or calling the school office before 2:30 p.m.  

    Thank you to Creative Kids Learning Center and Mrs. Liberty for the back to school goodies for our teachers!  Thanks to those who attended our Open House Monday night for first through third graders. Kindergarten will have their Open House on the 13th at 6:00 p.m.  Please make sure that you have signed and returned all school paperwork. We are SO very excited about a new school year! At West, we “ROCK” because we strive daily to be Respectful, Orderly, Cooperative, and Kind!
