Students of the Month

Portillo's Donated to the Westfield Education Foundation

On November 9, the new Portillo's on Route 32 had a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of their newest restaurant. There, they presented the Westfield Education Foundation and Open Doors with the donations that you, the Westfield community, contributed to!

Early in November, Portillo's held a sneak peak event where the Westfield Education Foundation and Open Doors were able to invite community members to sample the food for free and asked for donations to their respective organizations. Portillo's would match up to $5,000 in donations. Our community's generous donations totaled $10,146! With Portillo's match, the Westfield Education Foundation received $15,146, which is the most that Portillo's has ever helped raise for a single organization!

Apply for Financial Assistance

Even though school lunches are free to all students, to receive financial assistance for curricular materials (Chromebooks, textbooks, workbooks, classroom novels, online resources, and supplies like science lab chemicals, and art supplies) families still need to apply to the free and reduced program.

The application must be completed online. If you need access to a computer or assistance filling it out, please contact Gladys Salas at Central Office at 317-867-8002.

If you do not qualify for the free and reduced program, there are payment plans designed to help parents pay their student(s) fees in smaller amounts.
