It’s hard to believe that soon our school year is about to come to a close. We’re happy to announce that this year the ENTIRE Westgate School is welcome to synergize together by participating in an ABC countdown leading up to our last day of school! It’s exciting to know that Westgate’s ABC Countdown was completely designed by our Student Communication Action Team. This group of students worked proactively during their lunch and recess times to come up with ideas for our entire student body to enjoy.
We will celebrate each day with a variety of activities and fun that corresponds to the letter of the day. Some days will require participation from home, while others will merely require attendance. Attached are the countdown days. Please put it in a safe place and refer to it daily. We look forward to sharpening the saw with our Westgate School ABC Countdown!
