Summer Learning

Summer Reading Lists

This summer we want all of our students “unplug” and read!  Our team has compiled a summer reading list and purchased the books for each student.  There will be another opportunity for families to drive through Westside and pick up their individually packaged books on Wednesday, June 24th from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.  If you did not pick up your books in May, please mark your calendar for June 24th.
