Halloween Parade – Tuesday Oct 31 at 2:15
We hope you can join us for our annual Halloween parade.  Students will come out the front doors and then march to the back of the building to come in the back playground door. Please assemble along the sidewalk in front of the building, as well as the north sidewalk and then back around to the blacktop.  In the event we experience inclement weather, we will hold the parade in the two gyms.

Classroom Parties – Tuesday Oct 31 at 2:30
ONLY those parents assigned to volunteer and students will return to classrooms for Halloween parties.

  • Please only school appropriate costumes, no masks or weapons.  Costumes should be brought to school in a bag to change into just before the parade begins.
  • All treats must be in accordance with the pre-approved food list and are being coordinated by room parents.
  • Please remember no parking is permitted in the fire lane in front of the school building during Halloween activities, as it is a designated bus-loading zone.

Westfield Elementary Dedicates Park Programming Center

On Thursday, August 31, Westfield Elementary School dedicated the new Park Programming Center, a space in the school’s library that will be used to teach students coding and programming skills.

The Programming Center is named in honor of Catherine Park, the mother of three CCSD 89 students. Catherine Park, 46, died unexpectedly during a family vacation in Costa Rica in 2016. Her family made a $22,000 donation to provide opportunities for all students to learn more about the field she worked in. Read the full article here.
