Principal's Message

Brian Shepherd

Welcome Back to West Noble Primary

The staff at West Noble Primary School hopes you had a great summer and are now ready to get back to school. We had a great year at WNP and are ready to improve even more in the upcoming school year.

Our custodial staff has worked very hard to prepare our building for the start of the 2018-2019 school year. They have set the tone with a fresh coat of paint and a shine on the floors: Way to go Tim Emely, Cindy Staton, and Vickie Yoquelet!

We look forward to serving your child as a whole person. We care for them from an educational side with great programs such as Pre and Post Assessments,  Fundations, Guided Reading, Guided Math, Tier 1, 2, & 3, Grapeseed, and our newest programs - Dual Language, Makerspace and newest program Leader in Me.

We also focus on the physical wellness of your child. We have a fitness club with, 50, 100, and 150-mile club levels. Each level earns awards with the 150-mile club members receiving shoes. 52 children achieved the 150 miles! We had  147 members in the 100-mile clubs and 281 members in the 50-mile club.

WNP believes in the power of kindness. Our first-grade classrooms will go on several "Kindness Missions". Look for them out in the community doing "The Right Thing" for others! Come see us in our Annual Kindness Parade on the third Thursday in May - the official Kindness Day in Ligonier!

This year, ask your child about Tiering. They will receive on level instruction based on Common Assessments. This will enable your child to work toward grade level or be enriched. The goal is to assure that all students have mastered the critical standards, represented on WNP's Standards Based Report Card, before moving on to the next level.

Our newest program is Leader in Me. This program will focus on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. Mrs. Juday will be heading up the program and her lessons will stress the habits to make staff and students more effective at WNP! The lessons will be built on these 7  habits:

  1. Be Proactive
  2. Begin with the End in Mind
  3. Put first things first
  4. Think Win-Win
  5. Seek first to understand, Then to be understood
  6. Synergize
  7. Sharpen the Saw

Our Meet the Teacher/Back to School Night will be Thursday, August 9th from 5:00 - 7:00 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet your child'ls teacher as well as other staff and look over West Noble Primary School. There will be games, food, and music for all to enjoy! Your child can have their picture taken with our Charger Mascots or pick a face painting picture. Make plans now to come as we look forward to an exciting 2018-2019 school year at WNP!

Your child's supplies will be $5 for kindergarten and $5 for first grade. Please send the money with your child on the first day of school. In addition, there will be a list of other supplies, found online, for your child to bring on the first day.

Great things are happening at WNP! This is due to a great staff that is willing to work with you as a parent to help your child reach their fullest potential.

Please feel free to come visit us. We look forward to working with you!
