The weather is expected to grow colder this week!! Just a reminder to dress the kiddos in warmer clothing AND send extra clothes appropriate for the season to swap out with the summer wear in the cubbies!!
REMINDER: Westside's Canned Food Drive for local families in need runs through November 5th. Students can bring cans in with them in the morning and each grade level will have a bin in the hallway. The grade level that collects the most cans will receive a prize!!!
It is Red Ribbon Week!! Tomorrow is "Sock it to Drugs" and students can wear their silliest socks.
Pig the Pug is here to remind everyone that our book fair ends WEDNESDAY night!! Even older students love being read to, so don't ever assume they are too old for a bedtime story!! Our Book Fair goal is to sell over 300 books. We have sold 133 so far!! Help us reach our goal and put new books in the hands of your eager readers. Just 15 minutes a night of reading can improve a student's reading ability. Shop online at: https://www.searcyschools.org/o/westside-elementary/article/545517

A BIG shout out to Ryan Williams for taking the time to invest in our students!

Thank you Ryan!! (see Facebook for more pics)

Peighton, Kayzia, and Hudson all got postcards from Ms. Myers and Ms. Turney this week bragging on them for making great choices and making Westside a better place to be. #WestsidePride #Cubs
Mr. Coffee Bean and Ms. Starks showed Westside teachers some appreciation with Coffee & Cake in the lounge Friday morning. That afternoon, both were busy handing out October "Bean of the Month" awards. Being a coffee bean means handling daily struggles and adversity well. When the water gets hot, a coffee bean releases fragrance and flavor. When we tell students to "Be the Bean", we are looking to see who changes the school for the better. We will post ALL about our winners on Monday so be on the lookout!!
It's here!! Searcy Homecoming festivities begin at 6:30 pm at Lion Stadium! Come out and cheer on our Lions as they take on the West Memphis Blue Devils!
