Good-bye, 2017. Welcome, 2018!
It is hard to believe that we are entering the second half of our school year. Christmas is just around-the-corner, and the weather is beginning to turn crisp and cold!
A lot has happened during these first months of school. MTSS has been successful and beneficial for all K – 4th grade students. Our upper grade students have had the opportunity to participate in softball, cross-country, volleyball, wrestling, and basketball. WE have been focusing on Character Education, usiing a new “focus” word each week. Our Sixth Grade Quiz Bowl Team won 2nd Place in the district Quiz Bowl, in November. We had a wonderful Christmas Program, that was enjoyed by many family and community members. Believe it, or not, along with all this, A LOT of taching and learning went on in the classrooms of Westphalia!
We are all looking forward to a wonderful second half of the year!
Please feel free to drop in or call anytime. We always want to hear your concerns, so we can work together to make things better!
