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!

Third Grade Karate Assembly


Last Thursday Mrs. Arroyo's class and Mrs. Wimmer's class were visited by an instructor from the Bobby Lawrenece Karate school. The kids watched a presentation and were taught about focus, self-control, and confidence. 

Westside Spelling Bee


This morning Westside had our school Spelling Bee. The third through sixth grades each sent a winner from their classes to participate in grade level competitions. Though the words were tricky, and standing up in front of the school to compete took some bravery, the students tried their best and did a great job. The third grade winner was Ben Boucher, in fourth grade the winner was Kaden Cook, in fifth grade the winner was Kate Christensen, and the sixth grade winner was Bria Hammer.

5th Grade Field Trip to the Capitol

Today the fifth grade classes went on a field trip to the Capitol in Salt Lake City. They were able to watch sessions in the Senate and House of Representatives to learn more about the legislative process. Later in the afternoon they were able to meet with Senator Hinkins and Representative Thurston, who talked with them about their jobs and answered questions.
