  • 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

  • Mid-Summer Update

    Posted by Web Master on 7/24/2019

    summer Hello West Families,


    Greetings in the middle of summer!  This is a brief update as we prepare for the upcoming year.  Mrs. Collings is busy ordering supplies and materials to be ready for opening day. The custodians 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 posted here 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.
