Hello Westminster Families
We've had a busy week this week welcoming NPR to WCS. National Public Radio toured around Vermont to interview students and staff on the effects of our free school lunch program. We were delighted that they chose WCS to stop and chat! We had a small group of very articulate students sharing their experiences with school lunch and singing the praises of our very own kitchen staff Melissa and Sarah. We hope to hear our students tonight on All Things Considered or through a print publication on Friday morning. I'll be sure to share when I know more!

Fifth graders created these owls using chalk pastel on black paper. After studying the traits of owls, these artists were challenged to create owls that were symmetrical and proportional, while using various chalk pastel techniques such as blending, pointillism, and feathering.
