    Hello West Families,


    Thank you for your help in getting the year off to a great start.  The students are settling in, and I know we are on our way to a great school year!


    As a reminder, the Elementary Student Parent Handbook is on the district web page.  Here is a link: https://ma02202663.schoolwires.net/site/Default.aspx?PageID=89


    In order to prepare for the upcoming school year and better facilitate communication with all of our families, I ask all parents and guardians to take a moment and update your emergency contact and medical information in our ASPEN system.

    If you have any trouble accessing ASPEN please go to the Aspen Help page on the WPS website (http://wpsk12.com/resources/aspenhelp/) or contact the Aspen Help desk at aspenhelp@wpsk12.com


    We are looking for parent volunteers to cover recess duty on Fridays, which gives the grade level teachers a block of time to meet together for planning purposes. If you are interested, email me at dennis.shaw@wpsk12.com . Thanks!

    Hello West Families,


    I hope you are all enjoying the summer!  So far, we have had a busy summer here.  Mrs. Collings, our secretary, has been busy ordering supplies and materials to be ready for opening day. The custodians, Mr. Flibotte and Mr. Gerhartz, are working on getting the building ready for the upcoming year. Many of our teachers are attending workshops, classes and trainings to continue their own learning this summer, so our students can look forward to more hands-on learning opportunities, group collaboration, and engaging, interactive activities throughout the curriculum.  The Shawsheen/ West PAC is already booking enrichment programs and social events to enrich our students’ school experience.


    Don’t forget that the teachers’ Supply Lists are on our West Intermediate web page.  If you have any questions, send me an email at dennis.shaw@wpsk12.com. Please remember if you are purchasing any cleaning supplies for classrooms, they must be Green Works, Seventh Generation, or other EPA registered brand. 


    We have several upcoming dates to share with all of you for August/September:
