Fond Farewell to all of the students, families and staff that I have had the sincere honor of knowing all these years! I am retiring from the WUSD in June, 2015, after working here for 34 years. I was a teacher for nine years and then have been an administrator for the last twenty-five years in this district. I have enjoyed every minute and I thank-you for the privilege of working with your children. I will miss everyone dearly!
Fond Farewell! Mrs. Smith

On Thursday last week we had our very first Eighth Grade Honor Breakfast and presentation of the National Honor Society Recipients! This breakfast was by invitation only for eighth graders who have accomplished great academic success this school year. There were nine students who received the National Honor Society certificate and membership patch. The National Honor Society Members were: Brittany Saetern, Kailee Tinsley, Jose Rodriguez, Hemani Patel, Liliana Jacqueline Flores, Louise Hernandez, Trinity Nicole Taylor, Angelina Vinnikova and Mattia Sayson! Mrs. Zamboni organized the Honor Breakfast and Mrs. Rhinehart-Garcia is our National Honor Society Chapter Chairman. Thanks also to Paula Tapia, our cook manager for making the delicious breakfast! Thanks to the staff and students for a first time wonderful event that we plan to keep as an annual tradition!

Here is the latest on our Garden News! Our school garden has been approved to sell seedlings at the West Sacramento Farmer's Market every Thursday afternoon in downtown West Sacramento. The money the garden students will make will go directly back into the garden funds to help fund more garden supplies and garden tools! Special thanks to Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Straws for making our Westmore Garden a lovely learning place for all students!
This summer the garden will be open for any students who want to help out! If you want to work in the garden this summer you will need parent permission. The permission form is being sent home and it is also located in the locker on the homepage below. Return it to Mrs. Butler if you want to join in the gardening fun!

New Westmore Oaks T-Shirts!
The Westmore PTSA is going to have Westmore T-Shirts in other assorted colors this year! These shirts are inexpensive and can all be worn as an official school uniform. Last year we introduced green and purple, which are class colors. This year we want to also have orange and teal, which are also class colors! The Westmore T-shirt will also be available in black, another popular color. The T-shirt order form will be put on the website soon so you can order your T-shirts for school as early as August 17th for teh 2015-16 school year! Thanks to our wonderful PTSA!!
The PTSA apologizes for offending any parent about the chocolate money collections. The PTSA by no means was trying to threaten any one but merely wanted to let parents know what possible consequences could take place if money or chocolate was not returned. The PTSA is made up of parent volunteers who only want to do the best they can for the school. In fact this year, the PTSA has made enough money to fund a large shade structure that is scheduled to be installed this summer for all students to enjoy! The cost of the shade structure was $35,000.00 and every penny was needed to get it installed. Again our sincere apologies for offending any one with our tone in the notice to parents. Sincerely, Diane Smith, Principal
Eighth Grade Events!
Eighth Grade Events!
The Eighth Graders have a lot of fun activities coming up. On Wednesday, May 27th they walk to the Capitol Bowl Center for a field trip of bowling and a pizza lunch! On Friday, May 29th they have a Swim Party at River City High School! The Promotion Ceremony is on the last day of school on Thursday, June 4th at 9:00 a.m. in the gym. The Eighth Graders will each get six tickets for family members to attend. Students must dress nicely with no red, no jeans, no hats or shorts. We know that families like to give out balloons and flowers but we ask that you please refrain from giving them out until the end of the ceremony. It is very hard for the students to manage to get their diplomas and shake hands with their hands full of other things and balloons make it very difficult for parents to see their children if balloons are blocking the view. We try to make this a very respectful and meaningful ceremony for the children and families to remember. Thanks, Mrs. Smith, Principal

Music Is Language and More
We are learning how to play tunes and make music on instruments, but we are also learning language, math, and science. Look over some the topics and terms we have been exposing so far this year in band class (mastery takes time):
