Hello, Westview families, 

We are proud to introduce our school magazine, the Wildcat Chronicle. This issue includes a number of great articles highlighting events of last spring and the fall. The publication of our magazine was a collaborative effort including articles written by teachers, staff, and parents. One of my favorite parts is the send off to last year's graduates; as well as updates, from Westview alumni. It is so exciting to see the great things our former students are doing. We hope you enjoy what we have to share, and we encourage you to share things you may want to read about in future publications.

Happy reading,

Head of School

Tutoring can also be done in conjunction with summer camp or as a stand-alone program. Virtual tutoring is available. 
SAVE THE DATE: The Fundraising Luncheon Goes to the Movies
The Westview Development Department did some brainstorming. How do we fundraise during a pandemic? What are our options for in-person but still socially distanced event? Can we do something different?

We are so excited to announce that Westview creativity and outside-the-box thinking reigned supreme. Our 2021 Fundraising Luncheon is going to the movies. Save the date for Friday, March 12 and make plans to join us at Moonstruck Drive-In Theatre located at 100 Bringhurst Street, Houston, TX. All families, children included, are welcome and encouraged to attend this free event to raise money for The Westview School. Families and friends of The Westview School can expect dinner and concessions delivered to your vehicle while viewing Disney's new release "Raya & The Last Dragon". We are so excited to be hosting this event and will be sharing more details in the next few weeks. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to John Moring. Official invitation to follow.
Art Studio to Open to Elementary and Middle School Students
Starting on Monday, February 1, elementary and middle school students will be attending art classes in the 1830 building art studio. Students will remain in their cohorts, they will not have contact with students from other classes, and no supplies will be shared between students and classes. Also, surface cleaning protocols will be strictly maintained between classes in the art studio. We are looking forward to allowing our students to engage more fully in Westview's art program.
