Author Visit


On Wednesday the author Lance Conrad came to talk with the sixth grade classes about writing. He talked about the writing process and the important components of a good book. The students enjoyed hearing about his history as a writer and what he has done with his career. 

Visiting Professor in Sixth Grade


On Tuesday several sixth grade classes at Westside were fortunate to have a guest lecturer, Dr. Allphin, a professor at Brigham Young University, come and present about ecology. One of the sixth grade science strands is ecosystems, so hearing from Dr. Allphin was the perfect segue into the new unit. The students learned about ecological relationships, the food chain, and the role the environment plays in the food chain.
