Orchestra Assembly


Just before the Christmas break, sixth grade orchestra students displayed their talents in an assembly. The sixth graders, some of who had never played their instrument before this year, played Christmas music as the school listened. Several students also showed their instrument and played a solo to demonstrate the sound. 

Fourth Grade Service Project


In December fourth grade students used their division skills to figure out how to successfully create several fleece blankets to donate to Primary Children's Hospital. Great work fourth graders, those blankets will be very much appreciated!

Penny Wars

Westside Student Council will be conducting Penny Wars again this year.

The event will take place January 22 - 26. More details to follow.


Kindergarten Christmas Program


Yesterday our Kindergartners performed a fantastic program, telling about Christmas. In both English and Spanish, they told about the sights, sounds, and smells of Christmas. They also sang songs, getting us excited for the holidays!

Congratulations Mr. Lovell!


Congratulations to our wonderful sixth grade teacher, Mr. Lovell, who won last week's Zion's Bank and KSL Teacher Feature! He was honored during an assembly with a plaque, and will be interviewed on KSL radio in the near future. We are so grateful to have such wonderful teachers at Westside, who do all they can to help our students succeed.  

Jr. High Choir


On Friday morning Westside enjoyed a visit from the Springville Jr. High Choir. They shared holiday songs and even gave Westside's students the opportunity to participate in one of their songs. Westside loved hearing from the choir and getting into the spirit of the season.

Netsmart Assembly

On Friday the kids of Westside had an assembly to learn about safe use of the internet. Kids are always encouraged to be careful with the information that they give, and who they interact with online and when using social media apps. Continue the conversation at home and talk with your children about safe internet use! 

American Heritage Assembly


Last Thursday Westside was treated to an American Heritage assembly, which taught a lot about Utah's history. Through music, photography, and storytelling the kids learned about the formation of the land, and the way the pioneers lived. The kids listened to songs and were also encouraged to participate and sing along as they learned.
