This morning the 6th grade orchestra put on a concert for the fifth and sixth grade classes. Between playing the songs, students explained what each of the instruments in the orchestra are and demonstrated their sound. Several students also talked about why they enjoy being in orchestra, and encouraged the fifth graders to join next year. The kids did a fantastic job with their concert!
This summer we are sponsoring two 2-day coding classes for current 6th-8th graders. Could you please help spread the word to students and parents at your school? I have attached a Google Doc that could be used as a poster, copy and pasted as a PR story on your school website, linked through your school social media accounts, etc. I am also attaching an image if you need to post that separately. Thank you!

Fourth graders enjoyed taking a step back in time last Friday at our pioneer day. We trekked to the Civic Center park for a day of games and past times enjoyed by the pioneers. Students learned to sew buttons, made rag dolls, hammered nails into wood, made buzz saw toys, and listened to tall tales, along with many other fun activities. We ended the day by trekking back to school and making our own ice cream! Students had a lot of fun living like pioneers for the day.
During the month of March the students at Westside worked just a little bit harder than usual on their reading. This week we had several assemblies to honor such outstanding work. Each assembly was attended by two to three grade levels, and at each one names were drawn for kids to choose prizes or to shoot baskets, with money awarded for each basket scored. Three grand prize winners were also chosen to receive $50 savings bonds. We are so proud of all of our Westside kids who work hard to improve their reading and have fun with it each day!
This morning the kids at Westside were treated to a wonderful assembly put on by Marcia Knorr. The kids learned all about American history through music as the group played various instruments and sang songs that had to do with events such as the Gold Rush, the Civil War, and the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. For each song one or two students also came up to help with the performance, and the rest of the students kept the beat or sang along. The assembly ended with a fun twist as two teachers were called up for the last song to portray a cowboy rounding up her steer.
