Mountain Man Returns to Westside

Mountain Man Scott “Grizzly” Sorenson visited our 4th graders and shared his personal mountain experiences. He brought several animal animal skins as well. They were able to feel them and wear them. Students had a memorable learning experience.

Wildcat Hero of the Week

Kari Kiefer is our Hero of the Week!  Mrs. Kiefer is responsible for our take home reading book programs. She exchanges every take home book for every student involved. She makes every student she comes in contact with feel special. When she walks down the halls, she has a smile for everyone she sees.

Living Aquarium

Graciela Bartholomew

The Living Aquarium visited our school and shared about the water cycle to our 4th graders. Students were able to conduct an experiment as well.  The aquarium brought different animals for the students to see and touch.  It was a wonderful learning experience.

Fire and the Environment

Graciela Bartholomew

In Mrs. Bartholomew's class, Mr. Nunnally presented about fires and their impact on our environment. They also learned about the positive impact students can have on others as they volunteer in our community. Students timed Mr. Nunnally putting on his equipment and it was very impressive to see him do this under 2 minutes!
