As part of the program during 35 Years: A Community Celebration & Auction, our community raised their paddle for Tuition Assistance.
Westside School’s Tuition Assistance program provides need-based scholarships to one in four Westside students each year. The strength of our student body, and who we get to learn beside, affects every student at Westside School. Please take a few minutes to enjoy the video below. The lights on the 2017 Auction have been dimmed, but you too can make a difference!
In eighth grade humanities students have been studying immigration as part of a unit on the Industrial Revolution. Students conducted research on immigration to Ellis Island during the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. Each student was assigned a country to explore its specific “push and pull” factors and asked to create a character based upon their research and country assignment. Today students had the chance to reenact what it was like to be one of the thousands of immigrants who came to Ellis Island, taking on the role of their character. Thanks so much to the eighth grade parents who acted as Immigration officials!
