Spring is in the air, and our campus is "buzzing" with activity! Our students are working diligently in the classroom while preparing for state literary, practicing on stage for an upcoming play, competing in athletics, and serving our community. Check out this week's news...

Kindergarten students have been learning about wind. Today, they learned how wind is important for flying airplanes. They designed and created their own paper airplanes and took them outside for test flights. They also tested the pinwheels they made this week on a beautiful breezy day. What a fun way to create art projects and learn about the power of wind! #handsonlearning #westfieldkindergarten #educationofmindandheart
Second graders in Mrs. Tonya Hair’s class are “scooting” around campus to answer questions about their reading assignment - a fun way to improve reading comprehension! #readingcomprehensionscoot #westfieldsecondgrade #interactivelearning #reading #educationofmindandheart

Don't miss the Middle School's upcoming performance of The Ever After on Tuesday, March 14th at 6:30 pm in the Recital Hall.

This fun production takes place during a talk show with a host who invites traditional fairy tale characters who have been estranged for 20 years to reconcile on live television. From Snow White and the Evil Queen to Cinderella and her middle-aged Ugly Stepsisters, this TV show parody asks the question, ’Can’t we all just get along?’ The talk show is punctuated by questions from studio audience members and hilarious infomercials for fairy tale related products. Even Jiminy Cricket — now an occupational therapist and author of ’My Life as Your Conscience’ — makes a guest appearance to lend his professional opinion. Complete with a clairvoyant mirror, an unfortunate prince who is turning slowly back into a frog, and many other wacky fractured fairy tale bits, you will not want to miss this fun production!
Fifth grade students in Ms. Lea Fountain’s music class stepped outdoors this week to perform “Quadraboom,” a piece for graduated sizes of hand drums. This helps students learn Rondo form and syncopation. #handsonlearning #music #westfieldfifthgrade #educationofmindandheart
