Fall Conferences

We look forward to showcasing student learning and connecting with families during fall conferences this week. All families are welcome and our goal is 100% participation. Please let your child's teacher know if you are not available on Thursday, October 17th and would like to schedule a different day and time.

Featured Activities

Westford 8th-grade students are preparing for their trip to Washington, D.C. May 12-15. Students will visit memorials such as the Lincoln Memorial, travel to the Arlington Cemetery for the changing of the guards, explore the national zoo, and visit the Smithsonian and Natural History museums.

Haunted Westford, previously known as the Pumpkin Glow is quickly approaching and we ask that you join us for the fun and to support the 8th grade trip. We look forward to also serving you at the Italian Dinner in April, our primary fundraising event for this trip.
