Insider middle school
We will be holding a Middle School Information Night on Thursday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m. for prospective fifth grade families, including our current fourth grade families. We look forward to sharing more information with you about this event soon.
Our Westside School Student Council is holding a drive for Nickelsville, a temporary housing space for the homeless in Seattle.  Be sure to read more here, and learn how you can participate. 
The Middle School students get to cheer on their peers this week as the finalists from each grade level compete in the National Geographic Geography Bee at the school level this Wednesday afternoon. This will add to our advisory level conversations about sportsmanship, and dealing with winning and losing with grace and humility – a timely topic. Other forums some of our students are competing in are the Mathcounts competition happening this coming weekend, and the volleyball season gets under way with practices starting this week.
1. Join us for a Town Hall Meeting THIS Thursday, February 5, 6:00 p.m.
