When I had the opportunity to sit with Ms. Deffenbaugh in early March the first thing we talked about was instruction. Westwood Hills faculty are focused on providing high quality instruction and in particular there is a unique focus on technology. She shared information on Little Bits, their after school enrichment program focused on STEM. I also saw the collection of Google Chromebooks for the K-2 classrooms, she said there are five to six per classroom. Westwood is also fortunate to have a very active PTO which funded three of their computer labs.
As I was exiting the school the Kate Collins Middle School Band was coming over to perform for the elementary school students – what a great introduction to the performing arts in our school system!
This coming weekend I am looking forward to participating in the Westwood Hills PTO’s Dash with a Splash 5K – fingers crossed for good weather!
