Westfield High School is destined for amazing things in 2016-17. I am so fortunate to lead a school with teachers who are passionate and committed to helping our students learn and grow. I am also fortunate to have such focused, responsible and gifted students, supported by parents who see the value in a quality education. This is clearly a winning combination that allows us to follow the path of excellence. Excellence is not the result of a good intention or clever slogan. It is not a vague value that is easily achieved. It comes from a strong, urgent desire to improve how we do things when we see something we can do better. We are working hard to ensure that Westfield High School will be recognized as a top performing school in academics, athletics and student activities. It has been said that: “Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore give yourself fully to your endeavors. The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths. Remain steadfast. . .and one day you will build something worthy of your potential.” As we strive for excellence, we will not be tentative.
We are excited to share our WHS Quarterly Newsletter with you for second trimester of the 2017-18 school year.

We hope you will take a minute and read about what is happening here at WHS!
Due to the challenging weather conditions we have faced this year, we have exceeded our flex days and must extend the school year by one day. As of now, the last official day of school will be Friday, May 25, 2018. If we experience additional closures, the last day may need to be adjusted. Attention WHS Seniors: Because of the extended school year, it is necessary to move the graduation ceremony. The graduation date will be Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 7pm.
