REMINDER - In honor of the Labor Day holiday, CPS will be closed on Monday, September 5th. "Before the reward, there must be labor. You plant before you harvest. You sow in tears before you reap joy." Ralph Ransom Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. This weekend, as we spend time with our families and friends, celebrate the value of an honest day's work, the people who built America, and our nation's advancements because of the American labor force. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
Huge Celebration! CF Industries recently provided an EXTREMELY generous contribution of $20,000 to Westside Elementary students and teachers! The contribution will be used in intentional efforts to provide new academic opportunities to all Westside learners. Our students will have the ability to grow in ways that simply would not be afforded otherwise. This grant/financial gift is greatly appreciated by our entire educational community. Westside wants to thank CF Industries for contributing to the future of our children.

🏈🎥 Little Zebra Football Camp Highlight Video - https://youtu.be/AyU_58KwSjw Over 140 1st - 6th graders were building skills, a love of the sport, and the Zebra legacy on historic Lantow Field this week. Players participated in non-contact drills, made friends, and made memories they will carry with them through high school when they complete their final walk across a stage on that very same field. #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
📖READ READ READ!!!📖 While it is important to relax and enjoy the summer break, it is also important for students to work reading into their summertime activities! 📕Reading is a great way to keep your child’s brain active so they can continue to learn over the break. 📕An average of one month of learning and two months of reading can be lost over the summer break. 📕Students can improve and grow in knowledge, critical thinking skills, and more for the coming year. 📕Reading routines can become quality time with loved ones that children will remember forever ❤️ Make those memories and read some stories together this summer, Zebra Family ❤️ #CPSZEBRAPRIDE
