Exciting news at West School! Critically acclaimed author, John David Anderson visited with West School students on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.  Mr. Anderson is the author of the Bluestem nominated and very popular novel, Ms. Bixby’s Last Day.  He spoke to West students about the importance of perseverance and kindness.  We had so much fun with Mr. Anderson!

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.
