    On behalf of the West End Academy school community, I want to thank you for an amazing 2016 – 2017 school year. There were a number of exciting events that took place at West End Academy. They would not have been successful without your encouragement, support, and assistance. Again, thank you!


    We are looking forward to a more amazing 2017 – 2018 school year. As you make preparations, I have a few requests. First, please visit the district’s website and complete your child’s online registration. This will make for a smooth start to the first few days of school. If you need assistance, please call the school for available times. Second, encourage your child to participate in academic learning activities while at home for the summer. Reading and mathematics are an essential part of everything we do. Look for opportunities to read with and to your child. Also, encourage your child to read to you. When preparing family meals, allow your child to assist with measuring ingredients, reading recipes, and following directives related to cooking. As you travel in or out of the city, read the street and store signs with your young one. Reading is everywhere! While you are out shopping, allow your child to total the expected bill prior to checking out at the register. Lastly, as you begin to make purchases for the upcoming school year, refer to the supply lists posted on our website for student needs. Also, keep in mind that uniforms must comply with the Code of Student Conduct’s Dress Policy. Refer to the policy to ensure that your child has appropriate uniform attire.


    Enjoy the remainder of your summer! We will see you for Open House on Tuesday, August 8th, 4 – 6 pm. School begins Thursday, August 10th, 8 am.
