West Elementary is proud to introduce “Ask Me” stickers as part of our positive behavioral support system. Students caught making good choices have the opportunity to be awarded an “Ask Me” sticker. This helps facilitate conversation between their peers, school staff, and home about the great things happening at school. If your child comes home with a sticker, be sure to ask them about the positive choices they made at school.
