Westchase Kindergarten Round Up Jan. 19

Happy New Year Westchase! We have one more week until the kiddos return to school, and I hope you are able to relax and enjoy this downtime with your family.

On Friday, Jan. 12, our fourth graders will travel to St. Augustine. They have been learning all about Florida’s history, and they will get a chance to tour the fort and jail and take a trolley ride around the town and Flagler College. This trip is definitely a highlight of their fourth grade year.

Don’t feel like cooking?  Please join us on Monday, Jan. 15 at Chipotle for our Spirit Night from 4-8 p.m. Fifty percent of the proceeds will be donated back to Westchase!

Jan. 16 is club picture day. If you are in Chorus, Orffins, World Drums or any other club, please remember to wear your club’s shirt on Tuesday. These pictures will be available for purchase, and they will also be put in the yearbook.

If you have a rising kindergartener and are interested in learning more about Westchase Elementary, please plan to attend the Kindergarten Round-Up on Friday, Jan. 19 at 8:30 a.m. in the school cafeteria (MPR). Attendees will hear from administration, kindergarten teachers, PTA and guidance. The morning will wrap up with a tour of the campus with a PTA volunteer. Please feel free to bring your future Wizards along!

Our Spring Box Tops Drive begins on Jan. 22 and runs through mid-February. The class who collects the most Box Tops will win a pizza party. Congratulations to Mrs. Barrett’s fifth grade class for turning in 868 Box Tops during the fall drive. Overall, Westchase raised $1,345.90. Please be sure to support our Spring Drive. Simply clip your Box Tops and send them to school in a plastic bag. Remember to include your child’s name, teacher and grade to get credit.

On Thursday, Jan. 25 the PTA will host our second general meeting of the year. PDQ is providing dinner, which will be served at 5:30 p.m. and is free to all PTA members. Not a member? No problem! We will have memberships for sale at the door ($8 for individuals and $25 for families). The meeting will begin at 6 p.m., and there will be supervised games on the covered courts for the kids. We will give an update on our progress for the year, and administration will discuss “celebrating differences.”

Last, registration for our Spring ASE will begin in early February. For more information, please check out and like us on Facebook.
