Important Dates & Events 
 
1/19 (Tue) - 1/29 (Fri) Project Replay Lego Donation Drive  
Project Replay wants to share the power of play with others who may not have the same resources.  By sharing our Legos with others, we can benefit each other while reducing what goes in our landfills. Please bring your Lego branded bricks (duplos included) to the donation bins in front of the school.  They do not need to be cleaned or sorted.  Please take the time to discuss with your kids how we can impact others as well as the environment through Project Replay.
 
1/20 (Wed) 3pm Conference Week Sign Up
Please sign up for a slot for conferences happening 2/1-10.
 
1/25 (Mon) HTV Mask Fashion Show Photos Due
We are looking for photos of you in your favorite mask!  Maybe your mask is bright and colorful, or maybe it has a unique print or saying.  Perhaps it's just so comfortable you don't even know you're wearing it. Send us a photo that shows off your mask personality. Your photo may be included in our next HTV newscast & online mask fashion show for HTV.  Feel free to submit more than one mask photo if you can't decide.

Be in the Know
*Supporting HSF is more important than ever this year. West is currently at 71% participation, which is awesome, but we can do better! Thank you to all who already have contributed! We are just 21 families away from 80% and really want to get to 90% so we can get an additional $5,000 of extra funding for our school! Every little bit helps! Please consider making your contributions today~!

 

*Did you know we have our own West HCSD CARES reps! Thank you Steve Juno and Nicole Salama for stepping up! Please reach out to them with any Covid related questions about school, testing, contact tracing, etc.

 

Gratitude

Thank you to Nisha Somani & Jen Midle, parent volunteers and student ambassadors for making Kids4Kids service learning project a huge success! And as always heartfelt thank you to all West volunteers for continuing to make West BEST! Please look for many other volunteer opportunities coming up on Konstella, including West Virtual BINGO & 5th Grade Promotion! Thank you!
