Substitute Educator's Day

Westfield High School students talk Subs on Substitute Educator's Day 2021
November 18, 2021 was Substitute Educator's Day and we know that subs can be just as impactful as full-time teachers. These students prove that by talking about who their favorite substitutes are and why they've made such an impact.

If you want to be a substitute teacher in our district, where you can make your own schedule and decide what level and school you want to work in, click the button below. No teaching experience is needed.

Westfield Student-Athletes Sign Letters of Intent

In addition to world-class academics, Westfield Washington School has excellent sports programs and even better student-athletes! Below are pictures of our students signing their national letters of intent to play sports at the next level. Best of luck to all of you!

Monon Trail principal gets taped to wall!

Monon Trail Elementary School recently held their Read-a-thon and the students and families reached their fundraising goal! As a reward, the students got to tape their principal, Mrs. Dietz, to the wall. Don't worry, we were able to get her down after a few hours!

Tom Hakim awarded Elementary Principal of the Year

We previously spotlighted Washington Woods Elementary School's Tom Hakim for being named District 3's Elementary Principal of the Year by the Indiana Association of School Principals, but over the weekend, he was officially received the honor.

We're so proud of you, Mr. Hakim! Keep up the great work.
