The Westfield High School Class of 2020 officially received their diplomas on Thursday, July 9 after a thunderstorm cut short the initial commencement ceremony the day before.
There were smiles and sunshine for our elementary Grade 5 Clap Outs, held via car parades this year due to COVID-19. Lots of photographs of those special days can be found here.
At its virtual meeting on June 16, the Westfield Board of Education approved the appointment of Elizabeth Reilly as acting English Language Arts Supervisor for grades K-5 and Warren Hynes as acting English Language Arts Supervisor for grades 6-12. The two educators will share the position on an acting basis, as current K-12 ELA Supervisor Dr. Tiffany Jacobson becomes interim principal at the Lincoln Early Childhood Center for the 2020-2021 school year.
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.
With an in-person graduation planned for July 8, there was no longer a virtual graduation on June 23. However, as part of our continued commitment to honoring the Class of 2020, please enjoy this special Senior Tribute Video. The video premiered at 7 p.m. on June 23.
At Westfield High School’s annual Awards Night on May 28, which was held virtually due to COVID-19, approximately 145 awards were presented to graduating seniors.
