Westwood Birthday Book Club Is Here!

Your patience is appreciated as we waited for the books to arrive and be processed into our library system. I am continuing to meet with students to choose their special library book that you have generously donated to the Westwood Library in honor of their birthday. Birthday Club students will be able to check out their book the first week of their birthday month (Summer birthdays will be celebrated in May). Once your student has returned their library book, other students will be able to check it out and celebrate with them all year round. It's a special memento in honor of your student that all Wildcats will enjoy for years to come. Thank you again to all of the Westwood families who participated in this year's Birthday Book Club. 

Maker s Space

This year, I'm so happy to announce that we have a whole room dedicated to our Wildcat makers, coders, builders, and creators! Students will now have the opportunity to work on long-term projects together as we continue to build a community of makers!
