Westmont News

Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout-outs. Please check back often, and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Runza Night

Runza Night in Springfield is Monday, December 4, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Keep checking back for more details on this event.

Family Movie Night

The PTO is sponsoring a family movie night featuring Home Alone on Thursday, November 30 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. There will be popcorn and water, free of charge. Bring your chairs, blankets, etc. We look forward to seeing you there!

Craft Fair

Platteview High School National Honor Society is hosting a craft fair on Sunday, December 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. This is a great opportunity to do some holiday shopping!

Holiday Book Exchange

Westmont students will be participating in a holiday book exchange before leaving for winter break. We are asking for families and community members to please consider donating used books to our event. Students can bring in as many or as few books as they'd like to donate. All students will select books sometime during the week before break. Our hope is that each student will leave for break with one or two books to add to their home library! Please drop off donations to the office by December 15. Thank you!

Thanksgiving Break

In an effort to help with your holiday planning, the following is the Thanksgiving break schedule. School will dismiss at 11:10 a.m. on Wednesday, November 22. We will not serve lunch. School will not be in session on Thursday, November 23 through Sunday, November 26. School resumes on Monday, November 27 at 9:10 a.m. We wish you and your families a happy holiday.

Cold Weather

As the weather continues to get colder, please make sure that you dress your children properly for the anticipated weather. Your child should have their coat, hat, pants, and a pair of warm gloves. We have a very limited amount of cold weather clothing here at school, and we would very much appreciate you sending your children in the appropriate clothing.

Box Tops

Remember to clip and save box tops during the entire school year! Ask parents, grandparents, neighbors, and friends to clip box tops for you to help raise money for our school. For each box top collected, the school will receive $.10 cents. The PTO uses this money to buy needed supplies, fund programs, fund improvements around the school, and help support our teacher's classroom expenses. Every box top collected helps! Please send clipped box tops to school with your child. Each classroom receives rewards for every 250 box tops collected. Currently Mrs. Johnson's first grade classroom has collected the most box tops this school year! Keep on clipping!
