Note from Superintendent Swanson: Oct. 6, 2021

Dear Westminster Public Schools Community,

Our Homecoming parade on Saturday morning promises to be “Out of this World” and I hope you can join us on the streets of Westminster for this wonderful tradition.

The “Out of this World” theme will stretch the imagination of students across the district as they prepare their floats for the parade. As a long-time judge, I can tell you this event brings out the creativity in our kids and really unites the community as schools come together to celebrate the day.

I’m especially excited to learn that this year our students who participate in the Westy Futures and Juniors program have been invited to grab their team jerseys and march in the parade.

The Futures and Juniors program was created to provide organized team sports opportunities for elementary and middle school students. It is something that parents and students have wanted for a long time and, because of support from our Board of Education and an investment of time and resources, we have been able to put together a program that has exceeded expectations.  It’s a sight to see as parents bring their blankets and pop-up tents to watch the games and practices.

Our soccer program for little ones has already surpassed 300 players, and we expect that number to soar as we expand our programs and choices.

FYI - We are always looking for volunteer coaches. Go to Westyathletics.com to learn more about the program and how you can volunteer.

Don’t forget that the WHS Homecoming football game is scheduled for Saturday, October 15 at 7 p.m., at Memorial Stadium. The Wolves are playing against Adams City High School  Fans are asked to wear black to support the team.

Have a great week and I hope to see you at the parade.

Kindest regards,

Dr. Pamela Swanson

Superintendent of Schools
