Hunger Hero Food Drive

Dear Westpark Parents, 
This month, Westpark has partnered with WE to organize a Hunger Hero food drive. This year, our food will be donated to the On Rock Community Services Food Bank. The food drive is being organized and sponsored by our Leadership students.
On Rock is dedicated to helping out families in need or who are in a bind. They ensure that all food goes directly to the families who need it most. If you wish to find out more about On Rock Community Services, you can visit
Our food drive will start Tuesday, May 21st and end on Friday, May 24th. 
To celebrate all of the food collected during this week, students who have donated non-perishable food items are invited to come to school dressed in a super hero costume on Friday, May 24th.

We would like to thank everyone who made Carnival week at Westpark a success. We need to thank Home & School for their generous contribution to field trips, and snacks for the kids. We appreciated all the parents who came in to volunteer. We have to thank the teachers who were so willing to participate and encourage their students. Most importantly we have to thank Ms. Iafano and Mr. W. they planned out this week and winter Carnival happened because of their hard work! We are so lucky at Westpark!
