What a special treat to have artist and author Mavis Stevens on our school campus to inspire and captivate our Lower School students with the magic of storytelling! Ms. Stevens spoke to our second, third, and fourth grade students about being a life-long artist and her journey of writing a heartwarming children's book, Last Chance Trailer Park. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to connect with a real-life author and explore the world of imagination through literature and creativity. On a side note, Ms. Stevens was our own Mrs. Karen Ray's art teacher! #happyart #visitingauthor #reading #educationofmindandheart

Our third grade classes explored the inner workings of our city government and fire department during a field trip to the City of Perry City Hall and the Police, Fire and Emergency Services departments.

Our Middle School commons area is a great space for collaborating on assignments, brainstorming ideas, creating projects, and even reviewing for an upcoming test.

Our Upper School Foreign Language Club had the opportunity to hear first-hand how important the ability to speak a second language can be in a career from alumnae Korah Beth Clark '16, a certified athletic trainer in the Atlanta Braves organization. Korah Beth shared with the students about how she is fulfilling her dream of working as an athletic trainer in major league baseball, a goal she set as a Westfield student in Mrs. Tina Bowker's Spanish classes. Korah Beth earned her Bachelor's degree from Georgia College and State University and her Master's degree from Murray State University where she was a graduate assistant in athletic training for the baseball team. Thank you, Korah Beth, for encouraging our students to learn Spanish -- and to keep using their verb boxes! #westfieldforeignlanguage #WHSAlumni
