Westwood Senior Awards

 Link to Senior Awards:

Now, could you theoretically watch it right now since  you have the link?  Well, sure you could.... But don't!!  Let's wait until 6:30pm to watch it - all together! That way you can text, call, zoom, snapchat, tweet, IG along with your fellow Seniors throughout the awards. Because that's what senior awards is really about, a time to come together and celebrate one another! And we could use more things like that right about now! 

So again, see you tonight at 6:30pm for our crescent moon viewing/Senior Awards event!

We can't wait to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of the Class of 2020 together!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Dear student and families,

Now that we have been practicing social distancing for several weeks and continuing 
to adjust to our new ways of communicating,  it is very important to find the time to take
care of our mental health.  May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we encourage
you to stay connected and reach out to your family and friends.  Attached is a wonderful
resource for tips on how to talk to others about mental health. Remember Westwood H.S.
has  posted on their Counseling Website our mental health resources.

We miss you and are here for you.  Please let us know if we can support you in any way!

After three days of live interactions, this event will remain posted at the event site until the COVID-19 crisis is over.  Students need access to information and this site will remain a robust tool for exploring their options.  
We hope you can join us in this important event!  Register soon, space is limited.
