Dear Westside Parents,

Thank you for your support of Westside during our first semester of the 2013-2014 school year! Your attendance at our academic awards ceremonies, chorus and band concerts, student-led conferences, and football and basketball games is truly appreciated. The time you invest in your child’s education speaks volumes.

Students are working very hard in their classes and preparing for our spring CRCT testing. All students just completed writing assessments. Sixth and seventh grade completed their mock MGWA, and eighth grade students just completed their eighth grade Middle Grades Writing Assessment. We should have our results around the first week of March. We are looking forward to some excellent scores for our students!

Westside’s student-led conferences were held on Tuesday, March 11th. We appreciate your attendance for our conferences and that you took the time to review your student’s work and progress.

Our PTO put on a fabulous fall festival and is in the process of planning a spring festival. The spring festival will be on Friday, April 25th from 2:30-5:30. Watch for information to come home soon about this exciting event. The biggest hit of the festival was our mechanical bull, and it will return for our spring festival!

Please watch our website for many spring events, such as an April dance, Title I Parent meetings, Honors Night, Field Day, Eighth Grade Dance, and other student and parent events. If you have a rising sixth grade student, please watch for our ice cream social date for sixth grade students, as well as their Westside visitation date. As always, we welcome parent volunteers to assist with any of our events or to volunteer in our school. Our PTO also welcomes any parent volunteers!

Parents, we look forward to the second semester and your participation in Westside events. We are very proud of our students’ hard work. Please know that you may contact me at any time via my email address
(valorie.rolader@barrow.k12.ga.us) or through the school telephone number 770-307-2972. We value your opinions and suggestions that help us improve Westside Middle School.

Thank you,

Valorie Rolader
