  • Mrs. Ferry's science class students have started learning about Chemical Energy.  As an introduction, students are investigating the physical and chemical properties of matter. Students had the opportunity to observe different properties of matter while mixing baking soda and vinegar in a sealed baggie.  We completed the science inquiry process steps to practice how scientists investigate scientific questions.

  • Student PBIS Committee

    This year we've implemented a Student PBIS Committee.  The Committee meets once a month during lunch to discuss student behaviors around Westwood and share ideas on how to address such behaviors through positive interventions.  PBIS is a national school wide intervention strategy that stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports.  While Westwood has operated a staff PBIS committe for several years this is the first year we've had an organized student group to share continual feedback on behaviors that affect school climate.  So far this year the student committee has held 2 meetings.  From those meetings students indentified inappropriate language, hallway crowding and students making fun of other students as some of their concerns.  Ideas to positively impact such behaviors included increased staff presence in the hallways and creating more poster reminders to encourage students to be kind and remember their language.  All students are welcome to join this committee to share their concerns and bring their ideas to improve the school climate.  Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of the month during lunchtime, students should see Mrs. Costello for a pass to attend.
