    On the final day of the summer session, The Explore Our World unit culminated in a trip to Mr. Hoard's farmStudents got to see all kinds of vegetables and fruits growing in a large garden.  They got to feed the chickens and look for eggs.  Mrs. Hoard shared samples of her canned vegetables and jelly with the students - to their delight!  A highlight of the trip was to learn about bee keeping from Mr. Hoard, and to see his bee hives in action.

  • SUMMER SUMMIT AT WESTWOOD GOES FISHING!
    Last week at Westwood Summer Summit, they took the fishing unit from practice to reality. Students worked on their casting and finesse in the gym by practicing with targets, and then were able to take those skills to Fish Lake for some real world experience. They learned how to hook worms and untangle rods, as well as the patience it takes to reel in the "big" ones. Learning a skill, practicing patience, and applying those skills in the real world will have practical application as these students begin their careers in middle school.
