The Westgate Student Council voted to help the Food Bank for the Heartland this holiday season. It was a success as Westgate students donated generous amounts of canned goods and other nonperishable items. The total was over 800 lbs. of food! The drive was turned into a contest between K-3 and 4-6 classrooms. The classrooms that collected the most items were Ms. Wortmann's Kindergarten class and Ms. Ingles' 4th Grade class. When we all work together, we can achieve greatness!

Sixth grade students attended Outdoor Education. They did an awesome job both days! The weather was great and it is fun to see everyone learning outside of the classroom. Students got to experience a variety of different activities. Students rode horses, did archery, went on nature hikes, did tower studies, went canoeing and fishing along with getting a lot of team building experiences. They even got to break open an owl pellets and use GPS devices when geocaching! Outdoor Education is a great experience for students to build confidence, build teamwork skills and use those skills outside of the classroom.

By developing students' reading comprehension and fluency, we can build confidence, reading skills, and lifelong readers. Since we have been focusing on leaving tracks and monitoring and clarifying our comprehension, Mrs. LaFond's class became a 'reading posse' by donning super-cool glasses to help us 'focus' and 'clarify' our attention on digging a little deeper to gain more meaning from our reading.
