Aiming to Keep You Informed

September 20, 2019

From the Office

This week we were privileged to have the Lake Park High School Marching Band perform at Westfield! It is always a great assembly that our students enjoy; it connects our school communities together and staff always love seeing several of our Westfield alumni in the Band and Color Guard! Thank you to the Lake Park Marching Band and have a great season!


Today, we also had several cross-country students volunteer to help at DuJardin with their Jog-A-Thon, thank you to our students for their help and Mr. Volkman for coordinating this opportunity. The 7th grade wrapped up the week enjoying the weather with a tug-of-war activity outside!

If you have not had a chance to participate in the PTO Fall "UnFundraiser", please consider doing so. We appreciate the amazing support we receive from our PTO parents!

READ THIS...If You're Going to a Lake Park High School Game

  • Any non-high school age student attending contests at the high school must be accompanied by a supervising adult. Students arriving without an adult chaperone will not be admitted to the game.
  • Backpacks and opened outside beverage containers are not allowed in our stadium so please plan accordingly and bring what you need to be prepared for all weather.

  • Admission of $3 is charged to non-high school age students over the age of five (5) years old.

  • If you are not being driven home by your adult chaperone, please arrange for your ride to pick you up immediately following the contest in the circle drive in front of West Campus and not in the stadium parking lot. This helps to reduce traffic near the stadium.

Good News! The Activity Bus Will Run Monday through Friday

The Westfield 'Late' Bus will take students home after clubs, sports and activities. It will leave about 5:00pm from the front parking lot.
