NICE Community School District
The NICE Community School District is a rural district nestled in the rolling hardwood-covered hills immediately west of the city of Ishpeming in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The district is comprised of the Aspen Ridge School (pre K-8th), Westwood High School (9th-12th) and the Patriot Online Academy.
The goal of this idea is to promote positive behavior throughout the school and recognize those students who choose to make good choices.

WHS Students Selected to Area Honors Band
The following students were selected for the 2023 WSMA Menominee River Conference Honors Band on January 20th and 21st at Niagara High School in Niagara, WI. Each student was nominated and selected for participation in this year's honors band because of their outstanding musicianship and leadership within the Westwood High School Band.
The Menominee River Conference Honors Band is comprised of more than 80 students
selected from many Upper Peninsula and Northeast Wisconsin schools. Students are nominated by their member school and selected by a committee of conference directors. These students spent two long days rehearsing and improving their musicianship with award-winning and internationally acclaimed band composer and music educator Mr. Paul Murtha from Calabash, NC. The Menominee River Conference Honors Band weekend culminated with a tremendous performance by the Honors Band on Saturday, January 21st in the Niagara High School auditorium.
We congratulate these students for this terrific achievement!
