Curriculum Enrichment - Grade 5 


On Thursday, October 26th, Grade 5 students will have a visit from the Museum of Science:  Cryogenics, States of Matter.  Students will observe how solids, liquids, and gases change phases and properties when subjected to changes in energy, and learn how to define the states of matter. Our demonstrations involve extremely cold liquid nitrogen. Students will see balloons shrink, metal melt before their eyes, and a piece of paper set on fire using only water!


Halloween Costume Drive


Fourteen years ago, a Westwood family began a Halloween Costume Drive to help children in need. The first year, 25 children received costumes. Through the generous support of our town,10,000 children, who would not have been able to dress up for Halloween, have had the chance to do so. There are many more children waiting for costumes. Here's how you can make a child smile this Halloween.

Between October 10th - October 29th, bring in a gently used costume labeled in a bag or ask your child to help you choose a new costume for another child who wished for one. Place the costume in one of the bins at any Westwood Public School or at 42 Partridge Drive.  There is a bin outside the Sheehan office.  All costumes will be distributed throughout the state based on need. For all the children who will smile this year because of your generosity, thank you!

Support Our Troops Halloween Candy Drive


All Westwood Schools are invited to join Wellesley Dental Group's 10th Annual Community Candy Drive to benefit the U.S. Troops serving overseas. From November 1st to November 8th, we will be collecting candy, handwritten notes and cards for our soldiers.

Our goal is to teach the kids lessons in giving by encouraging them to share their extra Halloween candy with our troops overseas. These sweet treats and the handwritten cards are a reminder of home for these soldiers, and a reflection of our gratitude. The packages will be sent via CarePacks, a non-profit organization, along with oral hygiene supplies.

We are inviting all schools and organizations to participate in our Press Event - November 9th at 10:00 am. Local media and photographers will capture your generous donation. Principals, faculty, parents, and students (with the permission of their teachers, of course) are welcome to attend.

To schedule a candy drop-off, please call (781-237-9071) or email us at candydrive@wellesleydentalgroup.com.

Let's keep this fun tradition going!

Thank you!
