A Monday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

October 29, 2012

Westshire is a special little school and as I walk the halls, I realize just how good it is here. Last week we began the Everybody Wins program and as the mentors came in, I felt proud and grateful for our community. This year we have 17 students and 18 mentors reading together at lunch and recess. Just the fact that these students are giving up their free time to read with community members speaks volumes about who we are and what we believe is important.

wseAt the end of the week I was fortunate to attend a performance of Eric Carle's books with the Kindergarten class. Again I was impressed with our children—they were very well behaved and as I watched them laugh and have a good time, I felt that pride again.

Friday was a special day too as students wore pink to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thanks to everyone who participated!

On Monday, our fifth grade travelled with SME students to the Montshire Museum where they began their weather unit. They showed the staff what scholars are like as they used a huge weather globe and an IPad weather App to observe weather patterns and then presented their findings. They asked many pertinent questions about the exhibits and impressed not only their peers, but the staff at the Montshire as well. Kudos to all of our wonderful students!
