Please join us for another day of reading! All volunteers will meet in the gym at 12:45 for a short presentation and then move to their children’s classrooms. For safety reasons, we ask that all students stay in their classrooms. Parents may visit more than one classroom.
We look forward to reading with you!
We loved having Mayor John Curtis get tricky (and a little tongue-tied!) reading Fox in Socks to us on Friday. Thanks, Mayor Curtis!
Every 4th Friday from 12:45 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Parents and invited guests are encouraged to come to the school and read with their child(ren). If you would like to volunteer to participate with us, please call the school at (801) 374-4870.
Wear your school shirts from this year or previous years. If you don't have a school shirt, you can wear the school colors of blue and yellow.
Students will receive a ticket for showing school spirit which will be put in a drawing for a large candy bar.
Along with the video you can click this link to see a powerpoint slideshow of the data of Westridge from the last available State assessment.
Safety Information From District:
The district has released the following letter concerning school safety in our district.
We have a new system called Parent Link. This system will call home when a student has been marked absent and it is unexcused. If you receive an attendance message, please take the initiative to call the school and excuse the absence. State law requires us to maintain attendance records and intervene when there is inconsistent attendance. The Parent Link system should also be calling to remind parents to deposit money in lunch accounts, and will have the capacity to send other important messages home as well. Look for more instructions on the Parent Link system in the coming days. You will be able to log onto the system and adjust settings so the calls will come to different numbers or through text messaging as needed.

Important School Safety Reminders:
• ALL visitors need to check in at the office and get a visitor's badge
before going anywhere in the school.
• Please do not park in the drop off zone in the mornings. If you need to walk your children in, please park in a designated parking stall. The same is true during afternoon pickup. Park only in designated stalls.
• When dropping off children, enter on the east side only and exit in two lines only on the west side.
• Roller blades, skateboards, scooters and bikes are not to be ridden or used on school grounds and in the building. Before entering onto school property, students need to remove roller blades, carry skateboards and walk their scooters and bikes. All bikes brought to the school should be properly stored in one of the bikes racks provided by the school. It is strongly recommended that all students lock their bikes.
Thank you for your help and cooperation!
An important reminder that all passengers in vehicles must be buckled up it's the law. Please drive cautiously as you enter and exit school grounds.

We have a superb staff who work diligently to make Westridge an ideal environment for learning and growth! We welcome all students, parents, visitors and volunteers!
2013-14 SAGE Summative average proficiencies shown below reflect a new baseline for Utah's end of level testing. The new SAGE test is different than the previous Criteria Referenced Tests (CRT), and more challenging, and therefore cannot be compared to CRT results from previous years. SAGE tests are adaptive, with questions based on new Utah Core standards, and contain technology-based questions versus all multiple choice.
