Kevin Bracy Coming to Westmore!

Kevin Bracy Speaks to Students at Westmore!

Kevin Bracy, Motivational Speaker, was at Westmore on Thursday, January 8th, for an assembly for all sixth to eighth graders!  He  encouraged and inspired our students to get involved and make a positive difference at our school and in our community.  The assembly covered the complicated dynamics of bullying, (Bullied, Bullies, and Bystanders) and making healthy choices.  The simple and doable solutions that the R.E.A.C.H. One Alliance offers and helps students to make positive choices.  During the assembly students were asked to take leadership roles on campus by creating weekly time to huddle.   We had over 150 students sign up to particiapte in the Leadership Training!  To learn more check out Kevin Bracy at the link below!

MARA Fun Run!

The MARA Fun Run took place on Sunday, December 7th in downtown Sacramento!  It is sponsored by the California International Marathon! They paid for our Westmore Oaks student 's fees to run in the race!  Fleet Feet also sponsored our students by paying for the curriculum and a T-shirt for each child.  Here are some pictures from the event and some pictures of our students in the Project Fit after school Club! Teacher sponsors of the Project Fit Club are Mrs. Shukuya, Mrs. Churchill and Ms. Daykin!

Dinner with a Scientist!

Dinner With A Scientist!

             Our Scientist was Brian Scott.  He is from Ottawa and lives in West Sacramento, California.  Just a coincidence.  He graduated from The University of Ottawa with a Masters Degree in Biochemistry.  He develops and improves enzymes for degrading cellulose.  He has worked for two companies, Iogen Corporation and Novozymes.  He works at Novozymes in Davis, California.  He spent a lot of time with the students talking about his job and how it relates to science!

Designated Drop Off and Pick Up Area on Campus Revised!

Designated Drop Off and Pick Up Area on Campus Revised!

 

           

    

December 11, 2014

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This year we are really trying to keep our campus safe for all students and staff and in order to do that we have revised our parent drop off and pick-up procedures.  Starting on Monday, December 15th the designated drop off and pick up area will be located between the parking lot and the cafeteria only.  Parents are welcome to stay in that area to pick up and drop off their children before and after school.  Westmore Oaks will be implementing new drop off and pick up procedures during school hours from 7:00 AM – 2:45 PM.

All parents and students must enter through the gate located by the office or the gate by the parking lot and bicycle racks.  After entering the campus, parents may wait with their children in the morning in the designated area.  When the bell rings at 7:55 a.m., the children can walk without parents to the playground to line up.  Parents and Guardians will not be able to go out on the playground or walk down the halls to the classrooms.   In the afternoon, parents are to wait at that same designated area until students are dismissed from school.

Parents and guardians who need to enter the campus for other reasons or need to stay for a longer period of time during the stated school hours, must continue to sign in at the office and get a visitor’s badge.

Thank you for helping us in our efforts to keep your child and the Westmore Oaks staff as safe as possible.        

 

Sincerely,

Diane Tope Smith
