What's Up, Westy Academy!
Week of March 20th-24th 2023--SPRING BREAK
What's Up, Westy Academy?
We made it to Spring Break! Once we return, we will only have a little over 8 weeks left of the school year! Can you believe it!?
We hope our families and students take this break week to recharge, and prepare for the final push of academics. Once students return, CMAS testing will start fairly quickly! Teachers have been working hard to prep students, and ensure that they are more than ready to master CMAS! For parents who are curious, CMAS is an acronym for Colorado Measures of Academic Success. Students 3rd-8th grade will take tests through April 28th in all their content areas.
We know though, that the students favorite part of CMAS is the final day....as students will be treated to a "CMAS Cinema" during the afternoon. The teachers will take time to transform classrooms into "movie theaters" with different movies being featured in different rooms. Students will have the chance to purchase concessions with "funny money" they earned during testing weeks. It's definitely one of the end-of-the-year events that the kids look forward to.
Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day today, and we hope your Spring Break is also enjoyable and pleasant!
Trip to the Beach!
Yesterday was Beach Day! The kids were so excited to swim in such a unique and beautiful place!
5th graders head to Washington D.C.!
Many of the 5th graders are headed to Washington D.C. with Ms. Ka over Spring Break! This is one of the largest groups of students that we have had join us for an experiential field trip! The students will get to visit all the major historical landmarks, see the White House, and become experts on our country's history! The Washington D.C. trip is also a nice stepping stone before students start fundraising as 6th graders for their capstone 8th grade international trip!
