Last month, Westside fifth graders performed their program for the parents and other students at Westside.  The theme of the program revolved around important culture and events throughout the decades in the United States.  Students dressed in clothing fitting any of the decades from the early 1900's on through the year 2000. 

Mummy Exhibit

Recently the sixth-grade students at Westside enjoyed a visit to the 'Mummies of the World' museum exhibit at the Leonardo in Salt Lake City.  As a part of the social studies curriculum, students learn about how mummies are formed.  Students were also able to enjoy a lunch in the park across the street from the museum.
