The Westfield School Department’s Thanksgiving meal drive went into overdrive this year, with co-chairs Sue and Ralph Figy and Eileen and Jimmy Jachym ordering and delivering turkeys and all the fixings to a record-breaking 230 families this year, 80 more than anticipated. Ralph Figy said the district coordinated with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield, which is providing 100 meals for area families. The school volunteers put together 230 meals, so that between them 330 families would receive meals. https://www.masslive.com/news/2022/11/thanksgiving-effort-goes-into-overdrive-to-help-families-in-westfield.html

With the weather turning cold and stormy this week, School Superintendent Stefan Czaporowski is getting ready for another season of deciding when to call a snow day. It is not a call that he makes by himself, however. “We look at the weather forecast, which is a pretty good guide, although not always 100% accurate,” he said. “We check with the Maintenance Department, the Westfield Police Department, [school Transportation Director] Pam Kortarski, who checks with the bus company, and area superintendents,” Czaporowski said. ”We try to make the call as early as possible to not inconvenience families.” https://www.masslive.com/westfieldnews/2022/11/many-factors-influence-snow-day-call-westfield-school-superintendent-says.html

We had a visitor at our school-wide meeting. Our very own Oreo stopped by our school-wide meeting. Students were surprised and definitely did not expect a visitor. It was a lot of fun as we announced our weekly raffle winners for the week. Students are excited to spend time during our weekly raffles with staff. These opportunities allow students to know all of our staff and build relationships. Teachers are enjoying the time with students to simply have fun and just enjoy being with students.

It is hard to believe that we have been in school for 2 months. With October coming to a close, we are really working hard in our classrooms. We just completed STEM week at Paper Mill and had many fun events taking place for STEM week. Students enjoyed learning about different areas of science. Teachers were using STEM week as launching pads for bigger topics in science. It was a great to see our students loving science!
