Don't miss our Westfield Has Talent Show, featuring students of all ages on state tonight at 6 pm in the Recital Hall, and our Christmas Chorus Concert next Wednesday, December 6th at 6 pm in the Gymnatorium. Basketball and swimming are underway, and wrestling begins next week.

We are grateful for your support of Westfield, our Annual Fund, and our efforts to give back to our community.

Our first grade's Thanksgiving Program is one of Westfield's longest and most beloved traditions...and the perfect way to begin the Thanksgiving season. These students have learned so much about our country's first Thanksgiving and the God's faithfulness... wonderful reminders of being grateful for so many blessings. Thank you to all of our first graders and their teachers for such a special performance! #westfieldfirstgrade #Thanksgiving #Westfieldtraditions #educationofmindandheart

Thank you to Jason Mangrum, pastor of Kings Cross Church, for sharing the Gospel with our Middle and Upper School students this morning and reminding them of being in and experiencing the kingdom of heaven through a personal relationship with Christ.
