As part of a Historical Fiction unit, 5th graders in Westfield Public Schools read Number the Stars by Lois Lowry, a historical fiction novel that follows a friendship between a Jewish girl and a Christian girl in Copenhagen and their journey to freedom during World War II. And, at schools across the district, there continue to be presentations on the Holocaust that provide important real life context to these classroom experiences.
Lots of great news in the April-May 2019 edition of Arts a la Carte, with the District Art Show and many Spring concerts just around the corner. Arts a la Carte, which is produced by the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, also details what each grade level is doing in art, music and drama. Enjoy!
The Westfield Board of Education announced at its meeting on March 26, 2019 that, if no additional snow or emergency day is used, schools will be closed on Friday, May 24.
