WE REACHED OUR GOAL! Thank you to our students and families and to our community donors. By working together, we were able to surpass our goal and were able to order additional pieces for the Percussion Playground. Our CPS Maintenance Department will be installing the equipment before the end of the school year and we will be having a ribbon cutting ceremony so you can see the equipment and celebrate with us. Thank you for helping this dream become a reality. The playground will enrich West Park students and community visitors for years to come!

Staff members who participated in all the monthly challenges had a chance to win $25 toward something to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle (new sneakers, workout gear, weights, swim goggles, etc.) We want to be healthy role models for our students!

He spoke to the students about perseverance and how working hard now, will help them in the future.

The Kindness Challenge at West Park is going strong! For each act of random kindness, an additional link will be added to our chain. Some examples so far are: Liz helped Tucker trace his hands, Autumn got Colton's math book for him, Mia had tripped over her neighbor's chair and Sophia came to see if she was okay, Hunter picked up a water bottle when it fell,Colt picked up someone's book that fell. Every little bit of kindness helps someone! "Kindness is good for you! Kindness is good for me! Kindness is good for Columbus!
