Discovering Science Through STEM Activities


This week sixth graders learned about the relationship between the transfer of heat through convection and the density of different temperatures of water. Students poured (red) hot water and (blue) cold water in two sides of a density box. When the partition between the two of them was removed, the denser cold water moved to the bottom, while the less-dense hot water moved to the top. 

Ririe Woodbury Dance


This week Westside was visited by the dance company Ririe Woodbury, who performed during an exicting assembly. Students learned about the elements of dance and watched them exemplified by company members, then several students were invited up on the stage to dance too. As a culmination of their learning, all of the students were given the opportunity to follow movemnets of dance from their seats on the floor. 

Faculty vs. 6th grade Kickball


Last week Westside held our first faculty vs. 6th grade game of the year. This one was a kickball game, and the teachers even had a surprise guest player - Mr. Fox came to play! Everyone put forth a lot of effort and had a great time. 

We Love Our Principal


This week has been principal's week, and we want to say how grateful we are for Mrs. Pruitt, our wonderful principal! She works hard every day helping students, teachers, and parents. She is kind and caring and does an incredible job for our school. Thank you Mrs. Pruitt!!

Teachers Get Pies in the Face


On Friday the whole school gathered in an assembly to celebrate Westside's tremendous success in our fundraiser this year. Grades K - 4 met their goal, so one student from each of those classes was called up to put a pie in their teacher's face. Great job Westside kids, families and friends, and thank you so much for supporting our school!

Congratulations Heather Robinson!
