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.

Books with Buddies and Dr. Seuss

We at Westmont Elementary are educating our students today to be successful adults tomorrow. One thing we know is that no matter what our students choose to do in their futures, they need to have the support of their families, and they need to be readers in order to succeed. Please join us as we combine families and reading with our students to further our students love of reading and future success. We invite Westmont students with the last names of A through K on Thursday, March 5 and Westmont students with the last names of L through Z on Friday, March 6. Both events will take place from 7:30 to 8:10 a.m. The cost of the breakfast buffet is $1.90 per person, and breakfast and reading will happen together in the gym/cafeteria. We hope to see you there!

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are on Wednesday, February 26 and on Thursday, February 27 from 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. School will dismiss each day at 1:10 p.m., and school will not be in session on Friday, February 28. We look forward to sharing your student's progress with you.

Annual Auction Fundraiser

We will hold the Springfield Platteview Community Schools Educational Foundation Annual Auction Fundraiser on March 6 at Millard Social Hall from 6:30 to 11:00 p.m. This is an adults-only casino themed evening that is sure to fun-filled. Come dressed like a high-roller or a casino-themed movie character. The best costume will win a prize!

Kindergarten Round-Up

We are holding our annual Kindergarten Round-Up on Friday, March 6. Please plan to attend the parent meeting for this event on Thursday, March 5 at 6:00 p.m. Any child who turns five years old on or before July 31, 2020, is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall. 

Kindergarten Round-Up consists of two sessions, an 8:30–10:30 a.m. session and 12:30–2:30 p.m. session. We will assign your child to one of these sessions, information for which we will be mailing in the coming weeks. We will include information regarding online registration, required documentation, and the like. 

We encourage current kindergarten parents to mark your calendars: there will be no school this day for your child.

Cold Weather

Now that the cold temperatures are here, please ensure that your child dresses appropriately. We will go outside each day, weather permitting. Children should wear a coat, hat, long pants, and gloves or keep the items in their backpack. We do have some extra hats and gloves, but preparing your child for recess is best.
