SBAC Computer Assessments Coming!

SBAC Computer Assessments Coming!

SBAC Computer Assessments will begin for all students in grades third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth on Monday, March 23, 2015, and will take place for a month.  Each student will have about a seven to eight hour test time on the computers and we spread that time out over a period of days so students can have enough time to complete the tests.  The tests will cover the subjects of math and English.  Take the SBAC practice tests online to see how they are.  The link is located below.  Thanks, Mrs. Smith

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!

Dear Westmore Families and Staff!

    I just want to let you know that I have decided to make this my last year in education.  I will be retiring in June of 2015.  I have worked in the WUSD for thirty-four years, twenty-five of those years as an administrator.   I have enjoyed meeting and working with many exceptional teachers, support staff, students and families.  I will miss you all dearly but I am very excited to begin this new chapter in my life!

Sincerely,

Diane Tope Smith

Principal
