We have some amazing things happening at Hammond Westside! Employees on the campus are encouraged to give a shout out to a colleague seen being amazing. The person receiving the shout out is awarded 2 PBIS points and their names are entered into a drawing to win a prize each month. The concept of accentuating the positive and lifting the spirits of our Hammond Westside family is seen daily in emails of encouragement and praise. Our winner for October is third grade teacher, Ms. Phyllis Schenck, pictured here with Principal Jason Oller. The prize this month was a beautiful fall door hanger. Congratulations, Ms. Schenck!
A shout out to our Cheer team and their coaches, Ms. Burch and Ms. Ryan. They did an amazing job at the recent Shake Rattle and Roll Competition. They represented Hammond Westside with grace, dignity, and a ton of school spirit.
On Tuesday, September 13, HWEM received a special surprise from "Backpacks Full of Hope." They donated backpacks and school supplies they had received through donations and purchases. Backpacks and school supplies will be used for displaced students who are at HWEM from the flood. HWEM would like to thank "Backpacks Full of Hope" for their generosity and support of our school.
