Westside Insider WPO

Mindful Moments at Westside School, Tuesday, February 23

There has been an incremental and somewhat organic spread of mindfulness practice incorporated here at Westside School. At the next WPO Parent Ed Night we will discuss what mindfulness is, talk about its growth and evolution in education, share some resources, including research in the field, and what is happening in the classroom, and try practicing it during the session. Don’t know much about mindfulness? Then please join us at the WPO Parent Ed Night and learn more. Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 23 at 6:00 p.m. Please click here to sign up for childcare!

Give me a WESTSIDE…because it’s time for the Lower School Family Dance!
The Lower School Family dance is back this year – our first in our new home! So get your Westside School SPIRIT gear (or any spirit gear!) ready and plan to join us this Friday, February 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Westside School’s own Pete Hilgendorf will once again be spinning the non-stop, dance-til-you-drop tunes, and the Westside School Photo Booth is also back — both by popular demand. (What’s a dance without cheesy photos?) As always there are a few more surprises and loads of fun in store…you don’t want to miss it!!!! See you there!
