Dear Westside Elementary Family,

We begin this week with our 5th grade students going on their Inspire Trip to the Austin Area Food Bank! This is an extension of our 5th grade leaders running their own Business Fair before the Winter Break, where they collected canned goods!

At Westside, our mission is to “Lead, Grow, and Inspire.” This year we are being extra intentional at understanding what does it mean to Inspire our school, community, and world. While Inspire Trips are not the only area we are building this understanding, it is a new trip that we are finding to be powerful at understanding this part of our mission. We encourage our families to engage in conversation at home around “Inspire,” as we work together to grow and impact our leaders of tomorrow!

Have a wonderful week,

Amanda Lillard

Leander ISD sets weather guidelines each year. With the recent cold fronts lowering temperatures below freezing and noticing not all of our kids are coming to school with jackets, we have decided to be more cautious with the guidelines we put in place.
