Westmoreland Roadside Clean Up is Saturday, June 23, the last weekend of vacation and is organized by the Westmoreland Lion’s Club and the Westmoreland Conservation Committee. It goes from 9am to noon and you can call Mark Hayward, Sr. at 399-4959 if you would like to sign up for a stretch of road. This is a great way to get community service hours.

 

Opportunity to Help: A few of the girls in middle school (Megan, Olivia, and Cheyenne) are having a school wide contest collecting tabs. We would like your help and support by sending the tabs off of soda cans to school with your child. We are going to be bringing these to the Ronald McDonald House. This will be a great help for all of the parents with children in the hospital. If you don't know what the Ronald McDonald House is, it's a foundation in which they help parents with children in the hospital so they can stay close to the child without having to pay for things like a hotel. Thank you so much for your support and please send your tabs in! Every tab counts!

 

Also: And we are still taking Box Tops!

 

Smarter Balanced Testing will be Grade 6 after April vacation.

Guidance News:

School Counselors from Keene High School will be meeting with 8th grade students on Thursday 4/14/16 in the morning at Westmoreland School.  The counselors will be reviewing your child's completed course selection sheet and will answer general questions you and your child might have about the transition to the high school this fall.  Parents/guardians are invited to attend if they are available.  Letters with your child's appointment time were sent home with your student on Tuesday (4/5/16) in an envelope for parents/guardians to review.  A list of meeting times will be left in the main office should you happen to need a reminder of when the appointment is scheduled for that day. 

 

On a related note and as a reminder, students who intend to take Geometry Honors next year and had a recommendation from their Math teacher should be confirming attendance for their Math placement test with Administrative Assistant Leslie Swift in Main Guidance at Keene High School.  Her phone number is (603) 352-0640 x3776.  The test is offered on Monday 4/11 or Wednesday 4/13.  The exam takes place at KHS at 3:00 and is expected to last about 90 minutes.
