Kindergarten Celebration of Reading

Celebration of Reading at Maple Glen Elementary School
Kindergartners at Maple Glen Elementary School celebrated learning how to read by parading through the school and being celebrated by their schoolmates! Each kindergartner displayed their favorite book and marched through the hallways of the school while the other grades applauded, cheered and congratulated the young Rocks on learning how to read.

Westfield Apparel

Contrary to last weekend's weather, it will be getting colder soon. Make sure you're prepared with this new Rocks pom-pom beanie from the Rock Shop!

The Rock Shop is a student-run, student-operated shop with student-designed items. So, in addition to getting the latest apparel, you're also helping students get real entrepreneurship experience before they even graduate!

Passport to the Globe

Big picture
We are excited to announce the third annual Passport to the Globe at WHS! This is a joint collaboration presented by our Steel Pan, Culinary Arts, and World Language students and staff. This event is being held to recognize and celebrate the many cultures within our Westfield community, and will be your "passport" to an evening of international cuisine, culture, music, and art!

Performing Arts

Students from four different steel pan classes will be performing a concert with a variety of music from around the globe in the auditorium. Special guest Steve Lawrie, originally from South Africa, who built his career in steel pan building, tuning, performing, and arranging music, will be joining the concert.

Culinary Arts (Family and Consumer Sciences)- Advanced Global Nutrition and Cuisine Class

Following the concert, we will have a Cultural Cuisine Food Stations set-up, presented by our Advanced Global Nutrition and Culinary students and the Foodies Rock Program. Each team chose a country to research, and from there developed a recipe. The teams will be preparing their recipe for guests to sample. They are also decorating the tables with artifacts that represent aspects of the culture of the country they chose to study and will have some interesting facts to share. Be sure to come hungry for good food and knowledge!

WHS Clubs and World Language

Also following the concert, student lead clubs and organizations, as well as the World Language Department, will be representing different cultures around the world. Come enjoy learning a new language, a cultural dance, and about the many cultures within our school and community!
