· This Saturday at 11:00 am, there will be a children’s theater program at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park (Dole Mansion). “Uncle Em’s Traveling Hootenanny Presents: Keep Your Story Short Cause Your Tale’s Too Tall,” is a family show that combines music, puppets and wild costumes in a vaudeville-influenced storytelling narrative of the American Folklore classics of Paul Bunyan, Molly Pitcher, Johnny Appleseed, John Henry and Pecos Bill. Tickets: $10 parents, $5 children.
· Mr. Belin is again collecting Pop Tops for charity. What is a Pop Top? It is the little ring on the top of Aluminum cans that you can just pop off and save. They are on Pop Cans, Soup Cans, Dog Food cans and many other cans found in your kitchen. We collect the tops all year and recycle them at the end of the year and donate the money to local charities. It is a great way to help and it doesn’t cost any “extra” because you are already buying the items. If you have any questions contact Mr. Belin.
· Please Join Westfield School PTO for our 2nd Annual Back to School Picnic on Friday, September 5th, from 4:30 PM -6:30 PM. All Westfield Students and staff are invited to attend with their families. We will have a raffle to win a iPad Mini. Bring your chair and blanket and enjoy a Complimentary Hotdog, chips, and drink. Come meet the WCS community and enjoy other fun activities!!
