On Monday, we will be recognizing Veterans Day; Westfield will be collecting items to support Veterans exiting homelessness. We would love to have everyone's support through this collection! Please see the flyer for desired items as well as more information below about our Veterans Day plans on Monday.

Today marks the end of the first Trimester! Please see the information below about our Honor Roll recognition for this grading period on December 6th. Parents and relatives of Honor Roll students are also invited to join us.

Veterans Day - Monday, November 12

We will recognize Veterans Day on Monday, November 12th. We are fortunate to have several local veterans planning to visit our classrooms as part of our Veterans Day activities. Please reach out to us, if you know of a veteran who would like to join us on the 12th. Our Social Studies department is also leading our effort to collect donated items for veterans exiting homelessness. Please see the flyer for a detailed list of requested items.

Conferences will be held on November 19th and 20th from 1-5pm and 6-8pm. These are student non-attendance days; students will not be in attendance the entire week of November 19-23.

Honor Roll Recognition - December 6th

We will have our Honor Roll Breakfast on December 6th from 7:40am - 8:10am. Students who earn a 3.2 or higher GPA for the First Trimester, will be eligible to attend. Parents and relatives of Honor Roll students are also invited to join us! Our PTO will be providing coffee, juice, and treats in the Commons. The morning will include a performance by our Westfield Choir in our gym. Families and students will be able to choose their seating and may sit together. As part of the program, students will be invited to stand and be recognized for their achievement. At 8:15, students will be dismissed from the gym to go to their lockers and all parents and guests will be required to exit the building.

Students will be notified of their GPA in their report cards and will also receive their Honor Roll ribbons with the report card. Attending the Honor Roll breakfast is optional.
