  • Summit Students Craft Guitars

    Westwood Summit students have been working after school at completing full scale Fender guitars to learn about circuits, sound and craftsmanship.  Students have measured, drilled and filled their wood guitar bodies with hardware and circuits to produce professional grade electric guitars that will be played and enjoyed for years to come by Westwood Summit students.  Led by Lucas Jensen and Dan White, students have been developing skills in soldering, wiring and constructing through the use of Science Technology Engineering and Math practices to achieve these "rocking" outcomes.  While the finishing touches of paint and glamour are still to be added, students creatively have come up with designs to make their projects show that "Summit Rocks!"

  • Walk To Math

    In Mrs. Guske's Math Extension class we have started our "Walk to Math" rotation groups. Every other day during extension, our students get into their learning groups and rotate between stations that are tailored for their individual learning.  the stations consist of Math Fluencies, Moby Max, iPad Algebra, SBA Stations, and a Teacher guided group where we work on individual skills and text analysis.  These groups provide differrrentiated instructions for our kids and give them a great sense of responsibility as they track their own learning and set goals for themselves.

  • Windsor Family Science Night

    Can you "stack" water the same way you stack a tower of Legos?  Several of our 8th grade students led this experiment during Windsor's Family Science Night, teaching our future Wolverines a little bit about water density.  Thank you to Jaiden Drummer, Hannah Stewart, Colton Foster, Katie Clark, Kiearra O'Neal, Hope Zaragoza, and Nicole Burnett for showing Pride in our Learning and Pride in our Community!!

  • Amazing Art Night At Westwood

    On Tuesday night, the halls of Westwood Middle School were transformed into amazing art galleries.  Original student work, produced in a variety of art classes was on display to the enjoyment of the young artists, fellow students, friends, family, and staff.  Some of the highlights included Fauvist-style paintings and 3-D Doodles of "What's In Your Locker" by the 6th grade art classes.  The 7th and 8th graders proudly exhibited oil pastel Van Gogh drawings, ceramic kiln monsters, clay gargoyles, and pointillist portrait paintings.  Wolverine families appreciated refreshments provided by class parents and the PTO while talking with student guest artists about their work and inspiration.  Creativity is in the air at Westwood!

    Hour of Code

    On Thursday, December 10th, over 100 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Westwood participated in the Hour of Code as a part of Computer Science Education Week.  In their classrooms and in the library, students practiced Scratch, a coding language developed at MIT, to write code for Disney, Star Wars, and Minecraft games.  By the end of the day, students at WMS had written over 3,000 lines of code!  Great job, Wolverines!

    Learning about coding doesn't have to end with the Hour of Code.  Visit Code.org/learn for more information.

  • The weather has been cooling down, which means FISH class has moved inside.  Recently, we began  our racket sports unit, starting off with badminton.  Badminton is a great cooperative game that translates well into other skills such as tennis and pickle-ball.  We start out learning basic skills, such as proper serving form and hand positioning on the racket, then progress into game play.  Badminton is a great game to play indoors during the cold months and can easily be set up in your yard when the weather is warmer.

  • National Junior Honor Society

    Westwood National Junior Honor Society and Ms. Pring recently went to Second Harvest Food Bank for our community service project.  Our mission was to sort through bins of pears donated by local farmers.  We took out all the bad pears in order to serve only good ones to families in need.  We grabbed our food handler gloves and boxed up to 18,200 pounds of pears!  The director told us that our work translates into 15,166 meals!! We listened to music and talked while we sorted, and that made the work go by fast.  We had a lot of fun having a competition to see which group could sort their bin the fastest.  After about two hours, we took a coffee break.  Then we were back to work.  Once the sorting was completed, we helped clean up the warehouse floor.  We took a bunch of funny group photos after a job well done.  We showed PRIDE in ourselves and our community.
