Greeting Westlane Families,
This is Principal Pitcock with the Weekly Update.
I want to start off by thanking everyone who attended “Muffins With Mom” on Friday – we had over 200 people here and everyone had a good time. To my guys out there – the ladies put up a big number on Friday, so bring Dads, Uncles, and Grandfathers to “Donuts with Dads” on Friday, September 30 from 8:00 to 8:45 to see if we can get 200 people for that as well. I want to thank the PTO for helping register people and give a big shout-out to Ms. Jordan and her cafeteria staff for a great setup.
Fundraising orders will be available for pickup from Westlane Middle School on Tuesday, 9/27, from 3:30 – 5:30. You will have a second opportunity to pick up orders on Thursday, 9/29, from 1:00 – 4:30. We are grateful to our students and those of you who’ve been supportive of their efforts. Everyone did a fantastic job! If you have any questions, you may direct them to Betsy Harvey at email@example.com
Here are a few reminders as we near the end of the nine weeks. 7th graders – if you want to go to EU, you need to turn in your money in the bookstore. Mrs. Monroe at 23702 will have more details. 8th Graders – don’t forget you are going to Job Spark on Friday. Also, if I sent you a call about immunizations – please get those records into Mrs. Anderson ASAP.
