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 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.
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.
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!
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.
