The Westie Wrap-Up: Your weekly review of West Haven Public School news, updates and reminders.

Welcome back to school, West Haven students, staff & families
first day 
We hope all of our students and staff had a wonderful first day of school! It was nice to see lots of smiles, high-fives and excitement throughout the district. We look forward to seeing families come back to school this year for Open House events, family math and reading nights, PTA meetings and events, concerts and more!

Math Boot Camp preps Westies for algebra
West Haven High School’s Math Boot Camp kicked off its second year with a new group of freshmen the week before school started, focusing on small group instruction and skills needed for students’ algebra classes. Around 25 kids attended the sessions during the week of Aug. 18 and reviewed pre-algebra concepts. The program, which is funded through an Alliance District grant from the state, targets students who are entering ninth grade at WHHS and had some difficulty with math in middle school. More boot camp sessions will be held later this year.
