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.

Trivia Night

Join us for a fun adult night fundraiser to support our PTO and school on Friday, April 5 at 6:00 p.m. at the American Legion. Come up with a theme for your team, and dress accordingly. Bring your own table decorations to add to your theme. The cost is $175 for a table of up to eight people or $25 per person. Payment is due to the Westmont PTO by Friday, March 22. There will be prizes for the best team theme/costume and highest trivia score. A nacho bar is included with your ticket, and there will be a cash bar available. We look forward to seeing you for a fun evening!

Inclement Weather

The doors at Westmont Elementary remain locked all day. If you drop your student off here to catch the bus, please know students may come in the building to stay warm while waiting. Anyone wanting to enter the building will need to ring the doorbell, located to the right of the front door.

Box Tops

We would like to thank everyone for sending box tops to your child's classroom. The school receives 10 cents for each box top label collected. Westmont uses the money to fund field trips, assemblies, special projects, outdoor education, music instrument, and so much more! The top three classrooms that collected are Mrs. Johnson with 828 box tops, Mrs. Blum with 542 tops, and Mrs. Schlange with 524. Keep on clipping!
