In the library, classes have been studying Black History month. In particular we have been learning about the Underground Railroad; famous abolitionists such as Harriet Tubman and heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. For more information, the following website is very informative:
October 23rd is National School Library Day. Due to this being a Professional Development Day for our district, at Westridge we hosted a D.E.A.R. (DROP EVERYTHING AND READ) event today, October 24th in recognition of this special day!
After a read aloud over the PA by Mme Papapanagiotou and M. Kane, students, teachers and staff read in the halls, in classrooms and some even assembled outside. Everyone had fun!
