NATURE NICK VISITS WSS 

NICK JACINTO, ALSO KNOWN AS NATURE NICK, HAD A VIRTUAL VISIT WITH OUR 2ND AND 3RD GRADERS THIS WEEK WHERE HE INTRODUCED SOME OF THE MOST EXOTIC ANIMALS IN THE WORLD! THE KIDS WERE EXCITED TO LEARN ABOUT THE CREATURES. NATURE NICK AMAZED THE CHILDREN WITH AN INTERESTING AND FUN PRESENTATION OF MANY RARE AND EXOTIC ANIMAL SPECIES.  

DARE TO DRAW! 

OUR 5TH AND 6TH GRADE STUDENTS CAME EQUIPPED WITH PAPER, PENCIL, AND A CLIP BOARD THIS WEEK WHILE MARK KISTLER EXPERTLY GUIDED THEM THROUGH AN EXTRAORDINARY IMAGINATION ADVENTURE! MARK TAUGHT THE KIDS VIRTUALLY LIVE HOW TO DRAW WITH HIS AWARD-WINNING ZANY TECHNIQUE. HE SHARED HIS LOVE OF DRAWING AND ART WITH THE CHILDREN AND ALLOWED THEM TO ALL SEE THAT THEY CAN BE ARTISTS TOO. HE MADE IT SO EASY FOR THE STUDENTS TO FEEL SUCCESSFUL. THEY WERE FULLY ENGAGED AND EAGER TO DRAW.  

BREN BATACLAN 

BREN BATACLAN WAS AT WEST SIDE LATE MAY 2021 & WE ARE EXCITED TO SHARE HIS MURAL WITH YOU! HIS PROGRAM EMPHASIZED THE POWER OF KINDNESS & JOY THROUGH HIS ART.

EARTH DAY

IN CELEBRATION OF EARTH DAY, THE THIRD GRADERS EXPERIENCED A VIRTUAL PERFORMANCE BY MARK RUST ENTERTAINMENT.  MARK CAPTIVATED THE STUDENTS WITH A FUN, UPBEAT, ENERGETIC, AND POSITIVE SHOW CELEBRATING NATURE, ANIMALS, AND THE EARTH.  

THE SECOND GRADE CLASSES TUNED INTO VALERIE MARSH ON EARTH DAY. HER PROGRAM HAD THE CHILDREN QUESTION AND WONDER HOW MUCH TRASH JUST ONE HAPPY MEAL CREATES. THEY DISSECTED A REAL HAPPY MEAL AND FOUND OUT! MAKE SURE TO ASK YOUR SECOND GRADERS HOW LONG THEY LEARNED THESE COMMON ITEMS TAKE TO DECOMPOSE. THEY MAYBE CAN EVEN USE SIGN LANGUAGE TO SING YOU A SONG ABOUT REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!

HOPEFULLY THEY TOOK AWAY SOME ACTIONS THEY CAN ADOPT TO HELP OUR EARTH! 🌎 

“The Cultural Arts Committee was thrilled to join in on the fun of West Side School’s latest spirit week by bringing in two different entertainment groups to challenge the children’s learning prowess on Tuesday. The fourth, fifth and sixth graders welcomed back the best program of last year, Hollyrock entertainment’s “Brain challenge”. Students participated in a “Live” tv game show complete with a host, answering questions in a “Lighting Round” manner. Similarly, second and third graders were contestants on the virtual game show. They answered exciting and challenging trivia questions, and enjoyed some friendly competition via a live and interactive multi-media platform. The children buzzed in to answer questions ranging from core subjects to pop culture trivia. Both programs provided a great way for team red and blue to work on their good sportsmanship and team spirit across the grades and remotely!”
