Rio Linda Masons Provide Dictionaries to 3rd Grade Students:

Thank you to the Rio Linda Free Masons for the gift of dictionaries to all of our third grade students. As you can see by the smiles on the children’s faces the gift was very much appreciated.

Kindergarten Winter Performance:

What a delight it was to see our Kindergarteners perform holiday favorites.  Every year, the Kindergarten teachers work hard to provide a wonderful experience for students and families. This year was no exception.  Thank you to Mrs. Bellucci, Mrs. Roberts and Mrs. Sempungu and thank you to all the families for your on going support.

Flag Salute:  Thank you to all of the parents who stop and honor our country by saying the flag salute with us.

Please Be Kind to Our Neighbors: We have wonderful students and families here at Westside. I know that at dismissal time it can be difficult to find a place to park on the street.  However, please be kind to our neighbors and do not block their driveways. Many of the driveways you are blocking are families and friends.  I thank you and they thank you.

Westside ParkSafety before and afterschool is very important to us here at Westside.  Please be sure that students are supervised if they are at the park.  Unsupervised students should not be at the park before school on late start Wednesdays.  After school, students should go directly home.

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminder:  Bus riders and students who eat breakfast may arrive at 7:30 and enter the cafeteria.  All other students may arrive at 7:45.  Please note that there is no supervision prior to 7:30.

Thank you for all you do.

Laura Lofgren

Mission Statement

 At Westside we believe in doing school activities together. Besides all school PE, we have all school Friday morning sing, and on Friday afternoons we all participate in a Friday activity. The sense of family and community is unmatched. If you take a walk around the campus, one of the things that will stand out the most is how recognizable the relationships are, the relationships between staff and students, staff and families, and staff with each other. For Westside staff and families, our school is their home away from home.
