Papillion-La Vista School District

​Welcome to La Vista West Elementary Website

Kindergarten/Jump Start 2014
      REGISTER NOW to be considered for an exciting opportunity for your upcoming Kindergarten student! The 2014 Kindergarten Jump Start program is a partnership between Papillion-La Vista School District and the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties, that will take place July 14th-August 1st. The purpose of the program is to offer students a “Jump Start” into the school year by providing them with reading, writing and social opportunities prior to the start of school. Students who will be entering Kindergarten at Carriage Hill, G. Stanley Hall, Golden Hills, La Vista West, and Parkview Heights are eligible to apply. Entrance to the program will be based on a screening process.
      Selected students will be eligible for free programming, free breakfast/lunch, and if needed, free childcare through Kids Club during the three-week program, and/or free transportation. In addition, these students will receive free health, dental and vision screenings, as well as free immunizations.
       To be considered for the program, please call your child’s school for an application.
"Jump Into A Book" Summer Library @ LVW
          My name is Natalie Masada and I will be running the summer library program.  The LVW Library will be open this summer on Monday and Thursday 1:00-4:00.  (June 9th through July 24)  (except during the week of July 1st)  beginning June 9th.  Come browse, check out books, enjoy book readings and do a craft activity.  Hope to see you all there!
Avoid the “Summer Slide”!  Read, Read, Read!

Did you know that when kids don’t read over the summer they are likely to fall behind when they head back to school? These learning losses are often called the “Summer Slide,” and our school has made it a priority to keep our students’ skills sharp by encouraging them to read all summer long.       

Our school has signed up to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free online reading program that invites children to log their reading minutes to help set a new world record for summer reading. The goal this year for schools around the world is to break last year’s reading world record of 176,438,473 minutes!  We have also set an individual goal for our students to read 1,000 minutes each by August 15.  With your help, we can do it, and your child will earn a “Park & Popsicles Party” in August if he/she reaches the goal!  Current 6th graders will earn a free Monarch spirit item (we wouldn’t forget about you)!!

The fun began on May 5, 2014, and ends on August 15, 2014! The school that logs the most minutes will win a visit from a bestselling children’s book author and will be featured in The 2015 Scholastic Book of World Records.
