West Chester Elementary News    

By: Emily Brown     



     Congratulations to these boys and girls for having “rocking” behavior last week:

Bray Crouse, Lynden Cox, Eli Massey, Jeb Horton, Karsyn Reynolds, Makenah Carnell, Sam Al-najjar, Addie Cross, Ava Paton, Hunter Hurst, Tambrei Carnell, Brycen Faulkner, Noah Webb, and Mason Wright.  

    West Chester students enjoyed a visit from Chester Co. librarian, Mrs. Nancy Canada.  She told them all about the exciting things that will be happening this summer at the library!  We encourage our students to visit the county library. If you don’t have a library card, this summer would be a great time to get one, while also enjoying all the fun activities that are planned.  

    Faculty and staff enjoyed a joint bridal/baby shower last week.  Congratulations to Miss Sarah Lynn Cox on her upcoming wedding and Mrs. Hillary Gildea on her upcoming arrival of a baby boy.  We wish them the best!

    Third graders visited CCMS on Monday.  They were so excited to tour the building, meet some of the faculty and staff, and hear all about what they can look forward to next year.  It’s hard to believe that they will soon be leaving us!

    Our PTO would like to remind parents that the Fun Run pledge money is due by May 10th and winners will be announced on May 17th. The PTO have provided lunch each day this week for the teachers in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week!  We would like to thank all of the families for donating money to make this possible.

    Don’t forget to continue to save your Box Tops for Education.  Each box top equals 10 cents for our school! This is an easy way for us to earn money for our school.  Please make sure that you check the expiration date on your Box Tops and send it in on the collection sheets that will hold 50.   If you don’t have a student at West, you can still send us box tops! You can drop them off at the school office anytime or contact Mrs. Emily Brown at West and she can pick them up from you.  

    The end of the school year is always an extremely busy time of the year, so please make sure that you mark your calendar for the following dates:

May 9th - Career Day (contact Mrs. Carrie Burns for more info.); May 10th - Kindergarten Mothers Day; May 16th - Kindergarten Awards at 1:00; May 17th - Field Day; May 20th - 1st-3rd Awards at 1:00; May 21st - Last day for students May 22nd - NO SCHOOL; May 23rd - Report Card pick up (10:30-11:00).  

    On a final note, we would like to thank you again for the wonderful support shown this week for Teacher Appreciation Week.  Parents and guardians, we appreciate all of your support and involvement as we press on to finish up another great school year here at West!
