Apex Fun Run Donations are DUE NOW!
Wow! We had an amazing couple of weeks with the APEX team teaching our kids leadership and character traits and culminating in the always fantastic fun run! 
BUT- it's not over. Now, we need all the money that you all worked so hard to raise. Please turn in your pledge money this week to the office. Your child brought home a donation-collection envelope with instructions on Friday, and you can also complete your pledge online. 

Remember- a pledge is a promise! If you have any questions, please let Whitney Webb know at

It's Teacher Appreciation Week!

Westview Teacher Appreciation Week is here and to help with planning, these are the daily suggestions so there will be similar things for each teacher, each day, HOWEVER, some classrooms may differ, so PLEASE check with your room parent!  
Also included below is the daily schedule of special treats from the PTO for the week.
For the classrooms:
Monday - Note of thanks/draw a picture from each child
Tuesday- Send in one of your teacher's favorite things (lists in office - room parent please send out details)
Wednesday- Note of thanks from parents/guardians
Thursday- Favorite color day: send in something that is your teacher's favorite color (you could even have the kids in the class WEAR the teacher's favorite color!)  
Friday- FLOWERS! - each child bring in a flower (room parent to send a vase for your teacher)
*Friday is also going to be called "High Five Friday" (see below)... have your child give his/her teacher a high five when they come into the classroom in the morning in appreciation!
The PTO has special things planned for the teacher's each day as well. If you would like to volunteer to help out during the week - especially on Thursday for the luncheon- please let Bess know at
Monday - Tasty Donuts and coffee breakfast
Tuesday - Teacher Gift
Wednesday - TBD (most likely some sort of breakfast spread)
Thursday - McAllister's luncheon
Friday - High Five Friday - each teacher receives a $5 gift card from Sonic
Thank you all so much!  Looking forward to a fun week full of appreciation and love for our teachers. Remember that you don't always have to buy something for them to make them feel special! They love all the thoughtful notes, high fives and hugs they will get this week!  
AR Party Games Needed

The end of the year Accelerated Reader (AR) Party is set for Wednesday, May 9th, from 11a.m. - 1p.m. The kids will enjoy pizza, icees, Legos, a photo booth and inflatable fun! 

Volunteering for this event is very easy, enjoyable, and only takes two hours! If you want to be part of the fun this year CLICK HERE or email Evelyn and let her know you are interested in helping:
Please consider helping make this party a success for our kids! We still need lawn games such as bean bag toss, ring toss, yard bowling, Yardzee, etc.  If you are able to loan a game to the party please go to the link above and leave a message that you have a game available! 
Thank you A+ Sanitation for providing the pizza!
