Wow, what a wonderful sight to see all the smiling faces of kids, teachers and parents at Meet the Teacher last night!

Did you miss the PTO shirt table?!?!  Did we not have the sizes you needed?!!!  Did you have questions?  No worries we have you covered.  We will go online this Friday morning with all the items we have left in stock.  Those orders will be filled each week on Thursday’s to go home with your student on Fridays.  Thanks Tabitha Maierson for coordinating that each week!   Online orders are credit card only.  Just click here and choose Spirit Store for the link on Friday.
Spirit Friday’s – this is completely optional and your student can wear anything they want (adhering to dress code of course). They can wear a class shirt, school shirt, mustang shirt, blue shirt, etc.  They can wear mustang socks or even just a blue bow.  There is not right or wrong here so please do not stress.  Some kids participate and some don’t. 

School shirts (Westwood and bales specific). We have some YXS and YL shirts left for WW and a few for Bales (need to check sizes). Those in stock will be online Friday.  If we don’t have your size these items will also be available via the online store at the end of the month to pre order your school shirt.  These shirts are also optional as there is not a required day for you to wear them.  These are different then your “class shirts” which will be an order you do directly with your teacher later this year.
Online (pre order) store- will open after parent orientation later this month.  We will have it open for two weeks and then it takes about three weeks to get the items printed and ready for pick up.  This store will be coordinated by the awesome Jamaica Jenny at inked designs who prints all of our shirts.  It’s still a fundraiser and she will cut us a check for what we make beyond the cost of her printing our shirts. She is amazing!!!💙💙  That’s a lot of info about a lot of different shirts and opportunities to buy!   If you have any other questions please let us know.  Thanks again to Taylor Urban, Dana Haney Stanfield, Tabitha and the rest of the spirit store team.  It was a very successful night!!!

Room parent volunteer sign up is open!  Please click here and click on Room Parent – 2019 to sign up.  All those who sign up by the deadline will be entered in the drawing for room parent for your child’s homeroom.  More information is online click here

Class parties – the policy for this year is the same as the past couple of years.  Each child will be allowed one representative per child to attend one of their class parties this year.  The preference is that the representative be a parent.  In the case where a parent is not able to attend the next choice would be a grandparent.  Class party sign ups will be out at orientation.  If you miss orientation, no worries, the room parent will get you signed up for one of the parties. The dates for the class parties are on the calendar on the home page of the PTO site click here 

First day of school is tomorrow!!!!   Doors open at 7:25 and class starts at 7:55am.  Pack your patience as you navigate the car rider line and the streets, if you are bringing your child to school.  Remember if you are riding the bus that the first two weeks they my run a little off schedule – be patient as they are learning new routes, helping new kiddos on the bus, etc.  More about busses below!  As always, don’t forget that the parking spots marked reserved for a family are reserved all the time through the school year.  Please do not park in those spots.  Please also remember that the handicap and 5 min visitor spots are also reserved for those who need them.  Also, there is no parking along 2351.  The breezeway between schools will be open to drop off kids at both schools.  It will only be open the first day.  All other days you will need to sign in and out of each school to gain entry.  The back parking lot is also the “bus loop” so please pay extra close attention in that parking lot as it is very busy.  

Sno Beach – Don’t forget to stop by Sno Beach anytime tomorrow for a 1st day of school treat!  15% of all proceeds will go back to WW and Bales!!

School supplies – School supplies should have been delivered to the classroom, if you ordered from PTO.  If you didn’t order, please make sure and bring your supplies on the first day of school, if you didn’t bring to meet the teacher.  

Lunch – Need help with how to buy lunch?!  Go to my school bucks and sign up today. It’s so easy!  REMINDER There are no lunch visitors the first few weeks of school.  Character courts will open on August 28th and visitors are welcome Wednesday through Friday.  Lunch visitors can only be immediate family members – parents, siblings or grandparents.  Be sure and have your DL on hand anytime you come to school – it will be scanned at each visit
