Attendance Initiative

According to Attendance Works, poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade, and by 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. These are just some of the serious consequences of chronic absenteeism. 

We at Westmont are launching a concerted effort to improve our students' attendance, and we are asking you to team with us to make sure your children are at school and learning without missing days unnecessarily. Please refer to the calendar for 2023-2024 when you plan trips and vacations, and schedule those for the breaks already built into our school learning days. Thank you for planning ahead and promoting great school attendance. More to come!

Summer Band Lessons

We will offer summer band lessons to all current students in grades 6 through 12. Students can sign-up for either a 30 minute group or 30 minute private lesson. We will offer lessons at Platteview High School between 8:00 a.m. until noon. Please select your day on the registration form. Students signing up for lessons at a school need to fill in the information on the registration form, and attach your check payable to "Springfield Platteview Schools." Mr. Thoendel will contact you with your lesson time before the end of the school year. Get your form turned in early if you need a specific time, day or location. 

Please contact Mr. Thoendel at 402-339-3606 for more information.

Help Wanted: PTO Secretary

Be honest—you're the one in your friend group who filled out every page in your child's baby book...at the right time, no less. If you're the kind of person who documents everything, from your toddler's first steps to how far you jogged yesterday. We have the perfect role for you! You'll get to put your stellar record-keeping skills and attention to detail to good use as our parent group secretary. You must have good listening and computer skills—and extra credit if you can follow what's on TV and play Candy Crush at the same time!
