Our second grade classes are participating in an 8-week research project that examines how integrated science and literacy instruction influences second grade reading and writing ability and science content knowledge. This project is known as SILI – Science Infused Literacy Instruction and is funded by a grant from Brigham Young University for this project. Teachers are effectively integrating science and literacy instruction that aligns with the Utah Core Standards.

6th graders at Westside Elementary had the privilege of going on a field trip to the Clark Planetarium. They were able to see a movie in the Hansen Dome Theater called Extreme Planets and also a 3D IMAX movie called Hubble 3D. These were amazing films which taught the students much about the known Universe. They were also able to interact with hands-on exhibits. It was a great time had by all!
On Friday, November 2, the Spanish Dual Immersion classes at Westside enjoyed celebrating 'El Dia de los Muertos' (The Day of the Dead). The students were invited to make an altar to remember a loved one who has passed away. They also enjoyed ‘Pan de Muerto’ (Bread of the Dead) and some of the Spanish teachers dressed up.
