Lost and Found March 2021

After a successful reunion of many items before Winter Break, it is time once again to post the latest Lost and Found photos. Any items that are not claimed by Spring Break will be donated. Click here to see the photos!


Please only contact Monique by email to claim items, as these items pictured have been organized in the office and are no longer able to be accessed by students. When claiming an item, please list the student's name and grade/teacher, the photo's title, the item description and location in the photo (example: Clothing, navy Under Armour hoodie, top row). If you are claiming multiple items, please send them all in one email.


Thank you for your assistance in getting these items back to their rightful owner! Please consider labeling your child's items to allow for quick returns of lost items.

Leadership Lunches

Our Student Leaders are such amazing assets to our school, helping with a variety of responsibilities throughout the school from weekly announcements to recess safety! This group of students from all grade levels were recently recognized with a special, private lunch time. Westwood is fortunate to have so many students who are such responsible leaders!
