West's Parent Teacher Organization

Welcome to the Fieldcrest West Parent Teacher Organization Website!

August 26, 2015 
Greetings from Fieldcrest West, 
Thank you for help beginning our school year successfully. 

A few updates as we move forward with a fantastic 2015-2016 school year. 

This Saturday, August 29, we are hosting Dirt and Donuts at West from 9-11. We will spruce up the front of the building with mulch and some flowers. We would love to have you and your families join us. Donuts will be provided. 

Congratulations to all of our students who participated in the Summer Learning Challenge. We will celebrate with a party on the afternoon ofFriday, September 4. We will also soon order t-shirts for those who successfully completed the program. 

Our PTO has some fantastic opportunities for parents to become involved in supporting the school. Please email Mrs. Allen at mallen@unit6.org if you are interested in taking on a leadership role, chairing an activity, or hosting a PTO meeting. 

Finally, we have had a great first few days of school, especially with beautiful weather. We wanted to contact you regarding the possibility of early dismissals due to extreme heat. 
The decision to dismiss early is made on a day to day basis in compliance with state regulations. If the weather becomes excessively hot, a decision will be made by 10 a.m. and parents will be notified by Lumen messenger phone calls. Please make sure that the school has updated phone numbers and email addresses in Lumen in order for you to be notified in a timely fashion. If students are dismissed early, this will occur district wide at 1 p.m. Student dismissal routines will begin two hours early. Bus routes will follow normal routes and times will be two hours earlier. Please make arrangements for your children in case of an early dismissal. Contact your school office with any changes to your child's normal after school routine. Unless we are notified of a change, we will follow your child's normal dismissal routine just two hours prior. 
Thank you for your consideration. 

We are changing to more of a blog format with the school website. Please check it often for pictures and updates about school activities.
