Elementary Master Schedule
Figuring out which “special” an elementary school student is participating in during a school week is now just a matter of following the calendar and a short set of numbers.

Beginning this school year, Westside Community Schools has created a common master elementary schedule, which should make things simpler for parents/guardians and their children.  “Specials” (physical education, music, art, and foreign language) are on a four-day rotation.  Below is a pdf that lists numbers, which represent the four different “specials” that take place during the academic year for all elementary school.  Your child’s teacher will communicate which number (one through four) corresponds to the special activity for the day.

Also, for the parents/guardians of fifth and sixth grade band/strings students, the pdf also includes information on band/string cycle days.

ATTENTION: The attached pdf has been corrected to reflect the Feb. 2 and 4 inclement weather school cancellation days.

BOOK FAIR
ARTIST VISITS SWANSON
Lisa Worrell, former Westside elementary teacher, took time to visit Swanson. Worrell shared her talent and love of creating art made of paper. All students created their own version of paper art. These will be displayed at the Art Fair & Pizza Bingo night on March 20.
HAT DAY FOR HEAVENLY HAT FOUNDATION
Swanson Student Council Sponsors A Hat Day And Raises Over $250.00!

The Heavenly Hats Foundation collects and distributes brand new hats of all kinds to those heroes of all ages who lose their hair due to the treatment of cancer or the many other medical conditions which may cause hair loss.  The Heavenly Hats Foundation was founded by teenager Anthony Leanna when he was only 10 years old.

Since it's beginnings in 2001, Heavenly Hats has distributed more than 1,500,000 brand-new hats to hundreds of hospitals and clinics around the United States.  Thousands more have been shipped directly to individuals.  We also send hats to many other countries upon request.  We want to help every patient who is in need of headwear for warmth, comfort, courage and strength.

It's our hope and prayer that one day a cure for cancer and the many other illnesses that affect our family and friends will be found and eventually no one will be in need of a Heavenly Hat, but until then we'll keep sending these special hats (and smiles) to our Hat Heroes. Thank you to all of our donors without you, we would not be able to continue on with our mission.
WESTSIDE MIDDLE SCHOOL REGISTRATION INFORMATION
For 6th Grade Parents
The two document links below are the 2015-2016 WMS Curriculum Book, which contains the course descriptions and a short presentation that was used at our 6th grade parent meetings that explains a bit of what is new.  WMS is trying to do as much of the registration process on-line as possible, so there are a few slides in the presentation that shows how to do that.
