The statewide cross country competition wrapped up this past weekend and two local runners showed their speed. Westfield Technical Academy’s Kaylin Hawley and Westfield High’s Megan Moran finished tops in their respective divisions. Hawley finished runner-up in Division 2 and fourth overall in the Mass Vocational Schools championship at the Wrentham Development Center, finishing with a personal best 21:33. That personal best did not last long, however, as she broke it on Saturday at the All-State Cross Country meet, finishing the race in 21:28. She placed 43rd out of 183 runners. https://www.masslive.com/westfieldnews/2022/11/cross-country-runners-megan-moran-westfield-kaylin-hawley-westfield-technical-academy-use-quick-feet-to-achieve-notable-feats.html

Ralph Figy said the district coordinated with the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield, which is providing 100 meals for area families.

On Saturday, Nov. 12, Westfield State University was the setting where hundreds of student musicians from high schools across Western Massachusetts auditioned for the Senior District Music Festival sponsored by the Massachusetts Music Educators Association. One dozen instrumental and vocal students from Westfield High School qualified for the district competition. “These students went above and beyond practicing a prepared solo on their instrument or voice, were required to demonstrate proficiency in scales and sight reading — and in some cases created on-the-spot improvisations as part of their audition,” said Westfield High School Band Director Patrick Kennedy. https://www.masslive.com/news/2022/11/westfield-high-schools-vocal-and-instrumental-students-make-districts.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
