Kindergarten To Fox Hill  - Tuesday, October 31st 


Kindergarten Students will dress in their costumes for this fun field trip to visit Fox Hill in Westwood.



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!

November News:

  • Spirit Day will be on Wednesday, November 22ndCareer Day!
  • Service Project = Sheehan Kindness Rocks Project  


The Kindness Rocks Project

The purpose of the Kindness Project is to promote acts of Kindness towards others that create a positive spirit and sense of community, to celebrate acts of kindness when they happen, and to inspire individuals to demonstrate acts of Kindness towards others.  Students can draw pictures; write sayings, both, or anything they want to create on their rocks. We will spread these rocks throughout the Westwood community with the hope that when the rocks are stumbled upon, they sprinkle a bit of happiness to others. Examples of sayings may be:

Smile Often

Humble and Kind

Amazing things will happen to you

Any kind of positive saying or drawing can be created.


Grade 5 Curriculum Enrichment


On Wednesday, November 1st, 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!
