Elementary Master Schedule
Figuring out which “special” an elementary school student is participating in during a school week is now just a matter of following the calendar and a short set of numbers.

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.

Summer School Registration
It’s almost time for elementary summer school in District 66.  A booklet of class offerings can be found here and has been sent home with youngest and only children.  (Please also note that we found an error in our printed transportation schedule.  The downloadable copy has been corrected.)
 
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.

For 6th Grade Parents
The two document links below are the 2015-2016 WMS Curriculum Book, which contains the course descriptions and a short presentation that was used at our 6th grade parent meetings that explains a bit of what is new.  WMS is trying to do as much of the registration process on-line as possible, so there are a few slides in the presentation that shows how to do that.

State of the Schools Report
The Nebraska Department of Education released the State of the Schools Report on October 24, 2014.  The report includes testing results from the spring of 2014 in the areas of Reading, Math, Science, and Writing.  We are proud of our growth and excited to continue our efforts aimed at increasing student achievement to even higher levels.  Thank you for partnering with us  in the education of your children.
