WPS Drop Off Reminders

Please remember that Downing Street is for buses only. For the safety of our students, parents should NOT be driving down Downing Street while the buses are unloading to drop off their children. We have a new drop-off procedure in place on Fleet Street to help accommodate parents who drop-off their children.

Parents traveling westbound on Fleet Street are to wait in the coned off standing area adjacent to the curb. Please pull your vehicles into the parking lot and drop-off your students. Proceed through the parking lot and make a right turn onto westbound Fleet Street. This area is drop-off only. No standing or parking is allowed. A teacher on duty will supervise children outside on school grounds.

Thank you in advance for helping keep our students safe!

WPS Morning Song: Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling

Adapted by Westchester Primary School
I got this feeling, inside my brain
It goes electric, wavy when I make those gains
All through our preschool, K, 1 and 2
We're flying up, no ceiling, when we’re in our zone

I’ve got that sunshine in my pocket,
looking for a super day.
I can do most everything … when I try, ooh
I can't stop myself from learning, moving UP academically
Room on lock the way we rock it, so don't stop!

WPS Pledge:

I pledge today to do my best, in reading, math, and all the rest.

I promise to obey the rules, in my class and in my school.

I'll be caring to myself and others too, I'll expect the best in all I do.

If I fail I will be OK, I will just try a different way.

I will say I just can’t do it yet, but someday I will, you bet!
