On Halloween, Westside will be holding a parade on the grassy field, behind the school, from 1:30-2:30. All are welcome to attend. You do not need to sign in, but if you choose to take your child home after the parade please sign out your students in your student's classroom.

Students are invited to come to school on Monday dressed in their costume. If students choose to wear a mask, it may only be worn during the parade.

On September 30th the 4th grade attended the Utah Symphony at Maple Mountain High School.  They enjoyed the soothing sounds of music from various composers.  The conductor focused on beats per measure and showed how different beats give character to songs.

This week Westside celebrated Red Ribbon Week. Students and teachers dressed in red, dressed to represent their favorite teams, and dressed in crazy attire as they pledged to stay drug free. Each class also created a poster to remind people the importance of staying away from drugs.

On Tuesday, Westside had an assembly to celebrate our success with our fundraiser this year (thank you so much to everyone who dontated!! Your generosity will go so far to help our school with resources and technology!). Every grade was able to meet their goal, which meant that every teacher got a pie in the face. And since everyone worked so hard, Mrs. Pruitt got one too. Thank you for all of your support Westside students and parents!
