Principal's Message

November 23, 2020


Dear Sheehan Families,


I am writing to let you know that the Westwood Public Schools has partnered with the Westwood Council on Aging to host a Holiday Gift Drive to spread cheer to those senior citizens in our community who will be spending the holidays alone.  Due to the pandemic, many seniors are facing isolation and have little to no family around.  I would like to ask Sheehan families to join our Sheehan staff to make this holiday season a little more cheerful for our elder community.   The Holiday Gift Drive will run through Friday, December 11th.  Suggested small gifts (unwrapped please) include Gloves, Scarves, Socks, Hats, Crossword Puzzles, Sudoku, Pens, Pencils, Slippers, and Boxed and Sealed Candy.


We will have a collection box set up outside at the front door of the Sheehan School beginning, Monday, November 30th.  Thank you for partnering with us this holiday season.


Just a reminder to all families that if you are traveling to a high-risk state or out of the country, you must follow the state requirements and contact the WPS School Covid Team at  State Travel Requirements


This Wednesday, the student school day will end at midday.  If you are looking for a nice activity for your children to do during the afternoon, please ask them to make a cheerful holiday card for our seniors in the Westwood community.  We will include their cards in our collection box for the Westwood Council on Aging.  Thank you!


We look forward to seeing our Sheehan students when we return to school after Thanksgiving on Monday, November 30th.  


This pandemic has disrupted the world in so many ways, yet we have much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving season.  May we express our gratitude through our care of our students, staff, and families, affirming our commitment to do our part for the common good.  Thank you for your continued support and partnership.  


Wishing all Sheehan Families, a Happy Thanksgiving!
