Summer Enrichment

While school may be out for summer, parents may still be looking for educational experiences for their children. For those parents who find online educational resources an option for how their children might spend time, the district has compiled and categorized for your convenience, a list of such resources. Our user-friendly site lists activities such as virtual museum tours and zoo visits as well as some academic sites for those who may want to reinforce and review what was taught during distance learning. Other resources that your child may enjoy include educational podcasts and binge-worthy influencer personalities whose expertise is teaching through highly-engaging demonstrations.

No Place for Hate Summer Discussion Series

Many students are seeking to further their education on the subject of race, and hoping to talk about this issue with peers and educators. Also, the events of these past few months leave some students wishing to deepen their skills through enrichment activities during this unique summer. The Westfield High School "No Place for Hate" program has the ability to meet both of these needs, using the wealth of resources that our high school’s committee has prepared on the subject of race. We will be offering a Summer Discussion Series, which is outlined in the attached flyer. All Westfield students in grades 9-12 are invited to attend.
