West Point Connection
August 26, 2019
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It seems as though we have had a fast and furious start to the new school year. It was amazing and wonderful to see so many of you at Open House. I hope that you enjoyed the new format and felt you received enough information to get the school year started. We have many new families this year, and it was wonderful meeting all of them as well. Please know, that as the days progress, you may reach out to classroom teachers, the school counselor, or me with any concerns that may arise.
I apologize for the unfortunate bus situation. I am hoping that each day it improves. All buses are to be here by 4:00. I will continue to keep you updated through the REMIND app. We have two more trainings for Pikmykid, so I will let you know when we are ready to activate that system. Hopefully, in a few weeks, dismissal is smooth sailing.
Our first PTS meeting is Sept. 10th at 6:30. Please consider attending and becoming even more involved in the “fun” part of your child’s education. We really have a great group of parents who support the educational process at West Point, but we can always use more dedicated family members.
As you can see on the calendar, this Friday is CUSTODIAN APPRECIATION DAY. We like to honor them right away for all the hard work that they have done over the summer. Our hallways couldn’t be more shiny. I also want to publicly thank Will Krueger and his team of Boy Scouts, who redid our existing Rose Garden and gave it a necessary upgrade. It’s beautiful. We are so appreciative that Will chose West Point for his Eagle Scout project.
Our fundraiser will be held throughout the month of September. We appreciate all donations, as this supports many of the fun events held throughout the school year. We will culminate the fundraiser with our Walk for Education, on Sept. 25th. Every child will benefit with a fun day on a Bounce House in October. You will be receiving information soon about all of this.
You may or may not know that three local churches support our Food to Go program, which provides bags of student friendly snacks for needy children on the weekend. Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has agreed to host a Spaghetti Dinner for us. The West Point staff will be planning, orchestrating, and cleaning up for the event. This will occur on Sept. 24, 2019, from 4-7. Eat-in or take-home options will be available. Mark you calendar, and we hope to see you there. All proceeds will support the Food To Go program. Food is sent home twice a month.
Enjoy the rest of August and September, as we work together to do what is best for kids!
