It is very important that we are

Spring Cleaning
As you spring clean your
children’s closets, please donate
to Westwood. We are in need of
shorts or pants with elastic
waistbands in all sizes (children’s
6-12).

Keep Saving Box Tops
During the summer, please
continue to collect Box Tops for
Education from Betty Crocker and
General Mills products. This helps
us earn extra money for the
educational needs of students.

of library books for the
2017-2018 school year.
Students must return books by
Thursday, May 17, 2018. We will
send out notices of overdue
books prior to the last day of

The library wants to thank our
students and their families for
their support of the library.
