Dear Westwood Families,
We hope that you have enjoyed a fun and relaxing summer.
Thank you for taking the time to review the first 22-23 Westwood Wire, campus newsletter. Our goal is for parent communication to be proactive, timely, and relevant. Please access our newsletters in your email inbox, Westwood Twitter & Facebook pages, school website and PTA platforms on August 2nd & 9th and every three weeks thereafter. In addition to a message from me, the topics will include campus updates, academics, athletics, counseling and fine arts. We hope to continue our collaboration with you by compiling our communication in a way that is meaningful to you and allows you to best engage with the wonderful work being done at Westwood Junior High.
We look forward to seeing all our Wolves on campus for a safe and successful 22-23 school year. The Westwood leadership team is ready to welcome our new teachers to campus at the beginning of August. We are excited about these new Wolves and know that they will fit seamlessly into our campus's expectation of excellence. The following week, all faculty and staff will return for a week of team building and preparation for our students
Please mark your calendars for Schedule Pick-Up on Thursday August 11th for 8th grade - 3:30pm-4:30pm & 7th grade - 4:30-6pm. Details will be included in the next Westwood Wire.
The first day of school is Tuesday August 16th, when all students will report to campus. Wolf Camp will begin the school day on August 16th and 17th with your student’s advisory period teacher. During this time students will participate in campus orientation, getting to know you activities, presentation of expectations, and 7th graders will receive their Chromebooks. The revised bell schedule for these days will be sent in an upcoming Westwood Wire along with the supply list.
The faculty and staff at Westwood are ready to connect with your students on Tuesday, August 16th. If you have any questions please reach out and ask. We are excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year!
