Fifth grade students recently participated in Biztown elections. These Westies campained, designed posters, and candidates gave their final speeches. Westside 5th grade students will join local school districts at Biztown to build junior academic and economic success. These students took a lot of time and effort in preparing for these elections. We are so proud of all the dedication these students have shown. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE

Westside Elementary is thrilled to announce our 2023-2024 Teacher of the Year. Everyone please help us congratulate our incredible, Mrs. Sanders! Mrs. Sanders has taught 1st grade since 2003 and is an integral part of our building. When asked about her motivation behind teaching she shared, "My why is helping my first graders become independent readers. Every day that I prepare them to take their first spelling test or gain more confidence with reading is pure magic. It is an honor to be a small part of their journey and to witness their growth as readers." We are so grateful for Mrs. Sanders and all the love and devotion she brings to her Westside Family. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Here are just a few reminders regarding tomorrow's Halloween celebrations.

It's that time again! With the weather quickly changing, it's important that your child is prepared with clothing appropriate for the temperature. Labeling the tags of jackets and coats is always helpful, just in case the item is misplaced.
These Westies cashed in zebra bucks for special rewards, and Keigan paid to share about her pet hermit crabs. Many of Mrs. Campbell's students were thrilled to experience seeing this tiny creature for the first time! She taught her classmates all about hermit crab care and behavior. We love seeing these cool experiences in our building! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Westside classes participated in a poster decorating competition in recognition of Red Ribbon Week. Our wonderful counselor, Mrs. Lyons, delivered the winning blue ribbon to Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Gatz' Class. This group created a fantastic representation of this week's meaning with, "Say no to drugs and yes to chicken nuggs!" Fantastic job to everyone who participated in this week's events! #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
