Wizards Begin New Year

Happy New Year, Westchase families! Hopefully you have enjoyed some downtime and fun with family and friends and are excited for the new year. What new adventures, accomplishments and discoveries will 2019 bring for your family?

The kids start back to school on Jan. 8 and we know they will be energized from the break and excited to share stories of their holiday and time. What better way to reconnect with other Westchase school families than through a spirit night? Westchase Elementary will be hosting a spirit night at Chipotle (9466 W. Linebaugh Ave) on Jan. 14 from 4-8 p.m. and 33 percent of the proceeds will come back to the school. Come out for a delicious dinner and to reconnect with other Westchase families in the new year.

Jan. 16 is club picture day. Students who are in Chorus, Orffins, World Drums or any other club will have their pictures taken for the yearbook. These pictures will also be available for purchase. It is always great to capture these awesome memories!

If you have a child joining kindergarten in the 2019-2020 school year and you are interested in learning more about Westchase Elementary, please plan to attend the Kindergarten Round-Up on Friday, Jan. 25 from 8-10 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. 28 and runs through Feb. 22. Please be sure to support our Spring Drive. Simply clip your Box Tops and send them to school in a plastic baggie. Remember to include your child’s name, teacher and grade to get credit. This is an important fundraiser for our school. Please encourage friends and relatives to clip their box tops also! More details will soon be available about recognition and prizes.

On Friday, Jan. 25, Westchase Elementary will host a 20th anniversary celebration! The Fall Festival was cancelled in October due to inclement weather. That provided the perfect opportunity to move the festival to January and repurpose it to celebrate the anniversary of this awesome school. Westchase Elementary opened in the fall of 1998 in portables on the Lowry Elementary School campus. On Jan. 5, 1999, our current campus at 9517 Linebaugh was officially opened and students and faculty moved there. Please join us on Jan. 25 from 4-7 p.m. for some fun and to celebrate our wonderful school!

If your kids are looking to try something different in the new year, registration for our Spring ASE (After School Enrichment) will take place Feb. 6-10. For more information about this and all of our PTA programs, please check out http://www.westchasepta.org and like us on Facebook.
