Author Sarah Weeks
Exciting News for West School students! Bluestem nominated author, Sarah Weeks, visited West School on Tuesday, April 3rd.  She is the author of numerous award-winning novels, including Save Me a Seat with Gita Varadarajan, Honey, Pie, and Glamourpuss, among others.  West School students had a chance to learn about writing and publishing books, and the process of turning a book into a movie. It was an excellent author visit!

Innovation Station

The West School Innovation Station is a place for students to foster a disposition to creatively solve problems by making and inventing. Students are introduced to the engineering design process that involves asking questions, imagining possible solutions, planning, creating and improving on their plan. The maker movement is all about teaching our children to think for themselves, to think creatively, and to look for do-it-yourself solutions. We would love your help in gathering the following items for our Innovation Station: 

paper or plastic products (plates, cups, spoons, etc.)
glue or tape (duct, painter, Scotch, masking)
toothpicks
pipe cleaners
Please bring your donated items to the West School CLC.
