Upcoming Events


  • The 4th Grade Literacy Night

    We want to send a big thank you to all the 4th graders and their families that attended the literacy night on 10/25.   We had a huge turnout and we hope you all had a great time learning about new strategies and resources to support literacy! Each station focused on a different element of reading to promote family-student literacy interactions at home. We had Barbara Raab representing resources  from the Wilmington Public Library, Mrs. Provensal (Technology Coordinator K-5) sharing digital resources via the computer, as well as 10 other engaging stations including one where students got to take home a free “just right” book! The Scholastic Book Fair was open for families to shop for books as well. Thank you for a very successful third annual literacy night!

West Happenings

  • Start of School

    Posted by Mr. Shaw on 8/23/2019

    Dear West Families,

    I can’t believe that the opening of school is right around the corner!  I just wanted to send out a few quick reminders as we make our final preparations for the first week. 

    Mrs. Hannigan, our school nurse, will be at the West on Monday August 26 from 2 until 5 PM, for parents to drop off medications, forms, epi-pens, etc.

    Don’t forget that the teachers’ Supply Lists are posted 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.
