Principal's Message

November 28, 2022


Dear Deerfield Community,


I hope you had a safe and restful Thanksgiving recess and are looking forward to this short and busy stretch of time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. It’s hard to believe that there are only 19 school days before the December vacation.


National Inclusive Schools Week is December 5th - 9th. The 2022 Inclusive Schools Week theme is “Unity Within Our Community.” During Inclusive Schools Week, all Westwood elementary schools will take part in events and activities intended to celebrate the diversity of our community and promote acceptance and inclusion of everyone.


Below is a list of how we will celebrate Inclusive Schools Weeks at WPS:

  • All-school read aloud: The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig
  • All-school assembly:  Improv for Inclusion: Acceptance & Support, by Young Audiences Arts for Learning Massachusetts
  • Additional activities throughout the week:
    • Class discussions about A gift I bring to the classroom/school 
    • “Five Minutes for Friendship” friendly conversations
    • Students writing about how to be a good friend, including their thoughts on kindness, acceptance, and friendship.
    • Complete the following sentences: 
      • “I feel included when…” 
      • “I feel included because…”

Be Kind. Work Hard. Have Fun!
