5th Grade Scientists


This week Discovery Gateway Children's Museum visited the fifth grade classes to present Reaction Time, all about matter. The kids watched a presentation filled with experiments and explanations about chemical and physical changes to matter. Later in the day, each class spent time with the presenter, doing experiments of their own. 

Twin Day!

In celebration of Read Across America Week, Dr. Seuss Day, and Thing 1 and Thing 2, Westside had a Twin Day today. All over the school we had kids, teachers, and office staff dressed as twins, and even a few Thing1s and 2s. 

Orchestra Mini-Concerts


This week the Westside Orchestra broke into small groups and played for people around the school. They are directed by John Wells, and after only five months of instruction, they already sound great. Way to go Orchestra!

Dancing at Westside


This week our Kindergarten, first, and second graders have the opportunity to work with Miss Kimble, our District Dance Specialist. Each class will spend time with her learning components of dance and relating them to their core curriculum.
