Veteran’s Day is a time to honor America’s heroes who have served in the Armed Forces. Students welcomed thier veterans to Westgate for Veteran’s Day on Monday, November 11th from 9:00 to 9:30 am. Student Council hosted breakfast for students and their veterans in the media center. This was a nice way to say THANKS for all the veteran's have done for our country!

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.
