Beginning this school year, Westside Community Schools has created a common master elementary schedule, which should make things simpler for parents/guardians and their children. “Specials” (physical education, music, art, and foreign language) are on a four-day rotation. Below is a pdf that lists numbers, which represent the four different “specials” that take place during the academic year for all elementary school. Your child’s teacher will communicate which number (one through four) corresponds to the special activity for the day.
Also, for the parents/guardians of fifth and sixth grade band/strings students, the pdf also includes information on band/string cycle days.
ATTENTION: The attached pdf has been corrected to reflect the Feb. 2 and 4 inclement weather school cancellation days.

Registration for summer school will be online again this year and can be completed from home or at your child’s school. Please read the guide for online registration and follow this link to set up an account. If you registered your child for summer school in a previous year, you will be able to log in to your existing account in order to update information.
Please note, registration for classes will not become active until April 27th at 8:00 a.m., but parents are encouraged to set up their accounts in advance. If your child qualifies for free or reduced lunch, summer school tuition may be waived. Complete the form on pg. 5 of the summer school booklet to be considered for a waiver.
The Mission of Westgate Elementary School is to educate each child to achieve his/her full potential in collaboration with school, family, and community.
