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.

Grandparent/Special Friend Day

We invite grandparents or a special someone to join us for Grandparent/Special Friend Day on Friday, October 18 at 1:30 p.m. There will be an activity and school-wide bingo. You are free to visit the book fair after bingo. We hope to see you there!

Spirit Wear

Westmont spirit wear order forms will be coming home with students soon. Each Friday, we ask that students wear their Wildcat attire. Apparel that will be available are short sleeve t-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts, hoodies, and crew sweatshirts. They will be available in royal blue and grey. Please note that when we have track and field day in the spring, we ask students to wear Westmont blue. This may help with your ordering decisions. We hope to have orders back by parent-teacher conferences in October, therefore, it will be a somewhat short window to order.

Daily Changes

During the school day we receive many messages which we need to communicate to students. The office will only be able to relay messages of extreme importance. Please make whatever arrangements you need to make with your students before they leave for school. We realize emergencies happen, but last minute changes run the risk of not getting to your student. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.

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.
