As part of our redesign, teachers have been implementing social emotional lessons. Sanford Harmony is a program we use. Mrs. Sramek’s 1st graders learned about cooperation and the skills needed for TEAMWORK! Their goal was to create a picture as a TEAM 😊

West Elementary is full of laughs on April Fools Day! In Mrs.Roeder’s class they had an Easter egg hunt with no eggs and learned all about how marshmallows grow on a farm. Mrs. Mason made “brown E’s” to give to her class. She made sure to give them a real one after she fooled them. It was an exciting day down in the kindergarten corner!
We have rescheduled the First Grade concerts for next week. Mrs. Sramek and Mrs. K. Smith's classes concert will be on Tuesday, Feb. 2 at 6:00 High School auditorium. And Mrs. Hollern and Mrs. Horney/Brumbaugh's classes concert will be on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 6:00 at the High School auditorium. A reminder that all 1st grade music concert attendees will be required to wear masks. We will also be social distancing by taping off every other row. We also ask that you keep a two chair distance between families. The concert will also be live streamed on the Goodland voice.
The First grade concert scheduled for this evening is postponed. We will let you know the new date and time as soon as we get it rescheduled.
West Elementary will be having our Back to School Open House on Thursday (8/20) and Friday (8/21). We are limiting the attendance to one adult per each student and asking that no other family members attend. Please enter through the front doors and exit the doors nearest your student’s classroom. Due to the large number of people in our building during this time, we are requiring adults that are visiting wear a mask. If you haven't signed up for your time check our previous posts.
There will NOT be open house at West tonight. See our previous post for alternate dates and times!
Open House for 2nd grade will be on Thursday from 5:00-6:00. Kindergarten and First grade will be on Friday from 5:00-6:00. Please find your child's teacher in this list and sign up for a time to come. We are asking all adult visitors to wear a mask and that only the student and adult attend the Open House. Thank you!

You may recognize our last addition to the team at West! She has been subbing for us for several years and can be seen corralling cheerleaders for GHS most Friday nights. Welcome Chelsey Brown. I have one daughter named Elisabeth who will be in the second grade this year. I also have a fat cat named Peanut, and a boxer named Bonnie. I love animals, gardening, dancing and reading. I’m the high school Cheerleading Coach and this will be my fifth year coaching for Goodland. I love being their coach and teaching them new dances and stunts. I coach some of my favorite people I have come to know! I also teach classes at Soul Steppin Studio! I got my Associates at Northwest Tech, where I was also student of the year for my program and graduating class. I got my Bachelors Degree from Wichita State University, and will have my Masters Degree in May of 2021 in Elementary Education. I love laughing, creating things and teaching others how to create things too. Fun fact- I can speed read just shy of 350 words a minute. I love reading and my favorite books are the Harry Potter books because they were a great escape for me during tough times growing up. I wanted to be a teacher because I love learning and want to share that with others. In my spare time I lift weights, read, play with my daughter and our animals.
We’d like to welcome our newest member to the USD 352 family, Kadia Odd. She will be teaching kindergarten for us at West. About Me/ Free Time: I was raised in Northern Colorado. I am a mother to a very handsome tuxedo cat, Howard. In my free time I try out new baking recipes, catch up on my tv shows, or hike. Schooling: I recently graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. Go Bears! My favorite children’s book is Tacky the Penguin because it is a hilarious book about an odd and lovable penguin. It was written by Helen Lester and illustrated by Lynn Munsinger.
At it again today doing what is best for Goodland kids!!
