Monday, November 28th is a School Day

In past years, students in Westwood Public Schools have not had school on the Monday after Thanksgiving. This day was reserved for professional development for Westwood Public Schools staff members. This year, that professional development day was held on Tuesday, November 8th. Therefore, Monday, November 28th will be a full school day for all students and staff members.


Candy Donation Thank You

The following message is from the Wellesley Dental Group regarding the Candy Donation:


Hope you're enjoying this beautiful fall weather. On behalf of the caring team at Wellesley Dental Group and the Ali family, I would like to thank you for your participation in this year's Candy Drive and continued support. Schools and organizations that foster coming together as a community and celebrating the spirit of generosity are the reason why the drive was so successful (this year, we had close to 40 schools/organizations donate 8,600 pounds of candy!) We applaud your efforts. Without you, this would not have been possible! 

We welcome your feedback and suggestions on how to improve this experience and look forward to working with you in future drives.
