5th Grade Band and Orchestra Informance - January 29, 2020

5th-grade band and orchestra students have been working hard learning their instrumental fundamentals since the beginning of the year.  On Wednesday, January 29, 2020, we will be having an informal performance during the day to show off what we have learned so far.   The performance will begin at 12:45 PM and will take place in the gym.

This is an informal concert so students should just dress in normal school clothes.

Note: Jazz Band and 6th Grade Orchestra will be featured as well!

As always, please don't hesitate to contact either Mr. Erde or Mrs. Lucas with any additional questions or concerns. 

Kind Regards,
-Mr Erde and Mrs. Lucas

Principal Message: January 22, 2021

Today closed out our first week back with all students returning back to school in the hybrid face-to-face and remote settings.  It was wonderful to reconnect with our students and West Hills staff in both settings.  Once again, not only have our face-to-face students adjusted to coming to school, but our middle school remote students have been making impressive strides as we work together to fully implement our hybrid experience.  As a school community we will continue to partner together to establish the best and safest school environment for our students.

8th-Grade Trip Update - January 22, 2021

Over the past two weeks, we have been able to put together an itinerary shifting the DC trip to be a northern Michigan trip exploring the history and natural wonders our beautiful state has to offer.  With that said, this upcoming week I will be working on the feasibility of running an overnight trip. We are exploring all options, including local day trips that wouldn't require busing, in order to provide our 8th-grade students a unique experience to remember.
