From the Office
This week our 8th grade Boys and Girls Basketball teams visited both Erickson and DuJardin elementary schools and read with the Kindergarten classes. This is the second year of this event and it is always a special time for our students and we hope for the Kindergarteners as well! Thank you to the Erickson and DuJardin Kindergarten classes for hosting us and to Mr. Buchholz and Mrs. Siegert for organizing this Community building opportunity for students!
We would also like to highlight our upcoming Talent Cafe! This year our Talent Show will take on a new format in a cafe style environment held in the Commons on February 11th at 7pm! We hope you can make it out to see our showcase of talent here at Westfield!
