 FEBRUARY is BLACK HISTORY MONTH

It doesn't matter how strong your opinions are. 

If you don't use your POWER for POSITIVE CHANGE, you are, indeed, part of the problem. 

- Coretta Scott King

Thank you for keeping our kids safe! 

We have seen a change this last week in the traffic and safe driving at arrival and dismissal. Thank you for listening. 
If you have to get out of your car to help your child - PLEASE park in the lot and not back up the drop off  line. Pulling all the way forward in a SINGLE LINE helps more than you may realize:)

Girls On The Run

 

Hello Westhill Families, 

Our 2024 Girls on the Run season is almost here! This program is open to ALL girl- or non-binary identifying students in 3rd - 5th grade. Our season runs from the week of March 25th through the week of May 20th with a celebratory regional 5K event at Renton Memorial Stadium on May 19th to cap off the season. Our team will practice twice per week after school from 4:00 - 5:30 on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Registration is open and I have included additional information about the program in the link below.

WANT TO GIVE A STAFF MEMBER A 
SHOUT-OUT?


This year, NSF’s campaign is collecting notes of appreciation as well as donations from the community which will go toward future Classroom Grants at that educator's school. 

The Foundation will display all of the notes to educators on their website and will also post them on their social media channels and send the note to educators directly so they can be sure to see them. 

Now is a great time to start following the Foundation on Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn! Here is the webpage where educators can see the notes of appreciation as they come in.

Of course, donations are always welcome too!
