Kindergarten Graduation

Last week, kindergarten students at Westside donned their graduation robes, and performed for their parents and teachers.  This year-end program was a culmination of songs related to what the students learned in Kindergarten throughout the year.

4th Grade County Fair/Parade

Recently, fourth-grade students at Westside displayed their county floats they created.  This project was a representation of the research students came up with after learning about a particular county in Utah.  Students decorated their floats with objects related to the county they chose to study.

Flag Football Faceoff!

Students participating in the flag football intramural program, had the opportunity recently to verse their teachers.  The faculty team was comprised of teachers from all grade levels, and also included Principal Matis and the school counselor.  Students not participating in the game were still able to enjoy the sunshine as spectators and cheered the players on.

6th Grade Orchestra

In the sixth grade, students have the option to participate in the school orchestra.  Students meet before school 2-3 times per week to practice.  These students perform at various times throughout the year and will perform again during the sixth-grade graduation.

Arbor Day Celebration at Westside

On Friday, April 27, Westside fourth-grade students helped plant two trees in honor of Arbor Day. Springville City donated two Norwegian Sunset Maples to Westside Elementary to plant in front of the school.

Springville City is Tree City USA community.  A town or city must meet four standards established by The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters.

Making Comets

As a part of the sixth-grade science core curriculum, students learn about objects in the universe.  Recently, students made a "comet" out of various household products under the supervision of their teacher.
