Westwood Kick-Off August 2017

The first theme, when Westwood re-opened as an elementary school in 1997 was "Up, Up, & Away!" As we open our 20th year, we revisit this theme, with an addition: "Up, Up, & Away... The Power of Yet!"  It celebrates our original school theme, and includes a growth mindset finish with the phrase “the power of yet!” We will focus on learning and growing, and remember that it’s not “I don’t know that, or I can’t do that…” It’s “I don’t know that YET!” encouraging our students to learn and grow throughout the year.
