On behalf of the West Portal Parents' Club, we’d like to extend a warm welcome to all families with incoming students in August 2014. We're sure before long you’ll feel right at home at West Portal Elementary.
We’ve planned three summer playdates for new kindergarteners and parents to meet other families before school starts. All playdates are at West Portal Park, down the hill from the school on Lenox Avenue. We hope you can make all three, but we understand summers are busy.
- June 14th: 10am-noon
- July 13th: 10am-noon
- August 16th: 10am-noon (Kinder Fun Day)
We especially encourage you to attend Kinder Fun Day on August 16th. The kindergarten teachers will all be there, so you’ll be able to meet your child’s teacher before school starts. If you have any questions for our experienced Kinder Ambassadors who have older children attending West Portal Elementary as well as incoming kindergarteners, please contact us at
