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.

Restaurant Night

Please join us for dinner at Runza on Thursday, September 19 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Westmont PTO. We hope to see you there!

Jukebox Time Machine

Our 5th and 6th grade students have already been hard at work getting ready for their upcoming program. We will be presenting our show on Thursday, October 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the Platteview High School auditorium. We look forward to seeing you at our show!

Good News Club

The Good News Club will meet in the library every Monday from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. Students in kindergarten through 6th grades are welcome to attend. The club has snacks, games, songs, and fun interactive learning. A signed pink permission slip, located in the wooden rack in the entryway, will be necessary in order to attend. Please call Leona Irvin at (402) 312.0517 with questions.

Destination Imagination

Save your Hy-Vee receipts! Westmont's Destination Imagination is collecting Hy-Vee receipts to earn money for their program. Please send in any Hy-Vee receipt, including gas receipts, dated September 1 through December 31. Hy-Vee will donate a portion of that money back to our program. 

Benefit Dinner

Mark your calendar for October 25 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. This will be a night of fun and friendship as we support one of our beloved Springfield Platteview educators, Mrs. Christina Gonzalez. This is a benefit dinner for Mrs. Gonzalez at the final Trojans football game of the regular season. Keep watching for more information about this event.

Back Parking Lot

Please remember that dropping off or picking up students from the bottom parking lot is not allowed for the safety of our students. Drop off for students is up front or at the stairs that lead down to the parking lot crosswalk. Thank you for your help in this manner.

Start of School Reminders

Welcome to the 2019–2020 school year! Please make note of the following reminders:

  • We allow students inside the school at 8:00 a.m. The school day begins at 8:10 a.m.
  • Each Monday that school is in session we have a one-hour late start. School will begin at 9:10 a.m.
  • We lock our doors 24 hours a day. We ask that if you are dropping off your child, you leave them at the door unless your child is tardy. We then ask that you sign them in at the office.
  • At the end of the day, we will release children to you outside.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Visitors Welcome at School

We welcome visitors to school. If you visit us during the day, you will need to press the doorbell located at the right of the door and request to enter the building. After entering the building, we ask you to report to the office to sign in and get a visitor’s badge. The staff and students will then know that you have permission to be here with us.
