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.

Boys Town Skills

Each week our counselor, Ms. Susman, teaches a different Boys Town social skill. To increase the students’ use of these skills, the skill will be in the newsletter each week. Our hope is that you will reinforce these important skills at home. Our next skill is: disagreeing appropriately.

  1. Look at the person.
  2. Use a pleasant voice.
  3. Tell why you feel differently.
  4. Give a reason.
  5. Listen to the other person.
Progress Reports

Progress reports went home with students in grades 3-6. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher.

Popcorn Friday

Friday, September 28 will be our first popcorn Friday! Students may bring $.50 for one bag of popcorn, or they may pay $5 to cover all Fridays (this is new this year). Students may enjoy the popcorn in the classroom with their friends. All proceeds go back to the students and school community! Look for a flyer with more information and an annual pass order form in the newsletter.

Box Tops

The new school year has started! Now is a great time to start collecting box tops for your child’s school. Each classroom will collect box tops throughout the school year. For every 250 box tops the class collects, the classroom will earn a prize such as an extra recess, extra time on the iPad, and many more fun rewards! Our school will receive ten cents for each box top collected, so this is an easy, fun way to earn money for your child’s school! Please send box tops to school with your child to give to their teacher. You may submit them on a collection sheet or in a baggie. If you have any questions, please contact Theresa Rockwell

School Pictures

School pictures are on Wednesday, September 12 beginning at 8:30 a.m. We will send home picture packets after Labor Day. Order forms with payment are due the day of pictures. We will photograph all children so class pictures are complete. If your child will be absent on this day, picture retakes are on Tuesday, October 23.

Be Crazy Kind 5K

The 2018 Be Crazy Kind 5K run/walk is on Saturday, October 6 at 8:00 a.m. at Platteview High School. This is a great community event and the proceeds go back to our individual school buildings to help with our anti-bullying programs. We would love to get a buddy bench or two with our portion of the proceeds from this event, so please tag us when you register.

Hy-Vee Receipt Collection

Westmont's Destination Imagination is collecting Hy-Vee receipts to earn money for their program. Every $1000 worth of receipts from any Omaha, Council Bluffs, and/or Plattsmouth area Hy-Vee we turn in, Hy-Vee donates $5 for our program. This program will run from September through the end of December! Thank you!
