Congratulations to our incredible first grade teacher, Mrs. Leman, who is Westside's Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Leman is a talented and dedicated teacher who works hard to ensure that each of her students learn and feel loved. She brings so much to our school, and we are so grateful to have her here! Mrs. Leman was honored at the school board meeting this week.
This week our first grade students in the Dual Immersion program were guests at the Nebo District School Board Meeting, where they performed for the members of our school board. Great job first graders!
Recently our 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classes in the Spanish Immersion program put on an assembly for Westside. Through song and dance they taught about different cultures and the importance of working together.
Just before Spring Break, Westside held a White Ribbon Week to help kids become more aware of the ways that they use technology. In conjunction with that, we were able to host an assembly by McKay Hatch, who started the "No Cussing Club" at the age of 14 while living in California. He was tired of hearing the cussing that was taking place around him and knew his schoolmates could do better. He talked with the students about the importance that one person can make when they stand up for what they believe in.
