Westridge Announcements
The Science Fair is Coming to Westridge
The annual Westridge Science Fair will be held for 5th Graders on February 18th, 2015. Students who want to participate will get an interest form in their math/science class on Wednesday, December 17th, 2014. These interest forms are due January 7th, 2015. Upon turning this in, students will get the Project Application and a Science Fair Handbook. 

Students will then turn in the formal Project Application on January 14th, 2015, one week later. 

Meetings with Mr. Hoyle will be on January 21st, 2015 with each person or group who turns in an application; however, students can start working on their project as early as they like (if something needs to be changed, Mr. Hoyle will let you know at your meeting on the 21st, so you still have time to do it!). 

All projects will be due on February 18th. 

There are no exceptions or extensions to the dates, unless a “Snow Day” occurs ON A DUE DATE, in which case the form would be due the NEXT school day. 

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Hoyle, HoyleBM@pwcs.edu.​

If you see them, congratulate them!

Hour of Code
Welcome to Computer Science Education Week (December 8-14)! Westridge students will be participating in coding activities throughout the week as they explore the possibilities that computer programing can make into reality. 

We will be using activities from http://code.org to let students explore coding this year. Parents are welcome to try some of the activities themselves and to encourage students to try additional activities at home. The video below is their kick-off video for the 2014 Hour of Code. 



Please encourage your child to give coding a try, because coding will continue to be a key, basic skill for most careers in the future. 
Traffic Concerns on Knightsbridge Road
To our Westridge Families:

Please remember to drive safely and watch out for our children during pick up and drop off. Please remember that all car riders should be picked up in the school parking lot and not on Knightsbridge Road. The exit at door 10 is intended for walkers only. 

Thank you for ensuring the safety of all our children
Cafeteria Menu
Our cafeteria has a variety of menu options for our students each day. New this year, please see the Prince William County Schools calendar that came home on the first day of school. Behind each month is that month's menu. You can also view the menu online under our Cafeteria section to the left.
