Girl Scouts Parent Meeting Rescheduled for TODAY

If your daughter is interested in Girl Scouts, there will be a parent meeting tonight at 6:30 in the cafeteria. 
Any questions, please let Tammy Carpenter know. 
Principal's Address Tomorrow
Make plans to attend the school year's first PTO meeting next Tuesday, September 19, at 6:30 p.m. in the gym. 

Principal, Mrs. Margo Williams, will deliver her State of the School Address and the fifth grade will sing. 

This is a wonderful evening to learn about all the exciting events and important updates from your PTO. Please join us!
Coupon Books Sale Extended

KidFirst is an annual fundraiser managed bythe Hamilton County Schools Fund for Excellence, a non-profit fundraising organization. Now in its 30th year, Kids First has raised nearly 15 million dollars for education! There are over a hundred local businesses in the coupon book, offering great deals that more than pay for the book itself. 
Westview will keep $7 for every $10 book sold, which will go towards our technology and school needs. On top of that, students will receive prizes from the Fund for Excellence like roller skating passes or even memberships to the Chattanooga Zoo or Creative Discovery Museum. Westview itself will also be awarding prizes for every book sold, from a Wildcat tattoo, candy and a homework pass and Superfly admission!
As of yesterday, Mrs. Lewis and her class are in FIRST place in overall sales!
So let's keep selling those books! And of course, all this selling means opportunities to help collect the money, tally totals and return book and award prizes. If you are able to help with this first-thing-in-the-morning volunteer need, please call, text, or email Tammy Carpenter at 
423-779-4223 or
