Eighth Grade Promotion is Thursday, June 2nd!
Our 8th graders are moving on to high school next year, so we're acknowledging their promotion! Westmore Oaks' Promotion ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 2nd, in the Westmore Oaks gymnasium.
8th graders who are promoting will receive four (4) tickets each to give to their chosen guests. Please note every person attending must have their own ticket, regardless of age. Also, 8th graders will not be allowed to participate in promotion while wearing or carrying any balloons, leis, etc.; if you would like to give your promoting student these items, please wait until after the ceremony to give them. (There will be a designated area for balloons and other large gift items to be kept during the ceremony, as they will not be allowed in the bleachers.)
Make sure you get in your 8th grader's baby pictures ASAP to be included in the ceremony!
Moving Forward/Latino Literacy Celebration!
On May 12th there was an end of the Moving Forward/Latino Literacy celebration. We had a Sac State representative, Jessica Arauza, speak to our students and parents, enjoyed a wonderful potluck, and had raffle prizes. Mr. Westberg also helped to pass out certificates to the parents and their children!
"Pops for Pups" Success Story!

New Rain Barrels in the WMO Garden!
The Science Club elective classes, led by Mrs. J. Garcia, have painted and installed rain barrels in the Westmore Oaks Garden! This will allow the WMO Garden club to use rain water to water our plants, and help conserve water.
Thanks to Mike Vilhauer for his help and inspiration, and to Nor Cal Beverage of West Sacramento for donating the barrels!
Changes to Electronics Policy Effective FEBRUARY 16th
As of February 16th, 2016, all electronic devices will no longer be allowed to use or display by students on campus. These devices include cell phones, musical devices, headsets/earphones, portable game players and other similar devices. When students enter the campus they should turn off all devices and stow them in their backpacks for the day. They may use their cell phones after school at the gate areas to call their parents. By instilling this policy, Westmore Oaks will be consistent in our Electronics Policy with all K-8 schools in the district.
Informational letters have been sent home with students as of January 29, 2016. Copies of the letters are available in the School Locker as well, in both English and Spanish.
