Celebrating Black History Month

Whether producing a powerful video series on the Westfield African American History Walking Tour, exploring the many contributions of ancient African societies, or reading and researching non-fiction texts about prominent people and events in African American history, students and educators in the Westfield Public Schools are celebrating Black History Month and paying homage to Black Americans throughout history.

Holocaust Remembrance

Eva Safier Wiener was 10 months old when she and her parents boarded the M.S. St. Louis, a German transatlantic liner docked in Hamburg and bound for Cuba.  It was May 1939 and the Safiers were among more than 900 Jewish passengers desperate to get out of Nazi Germany. Mrs. Wiener told her harrowing story to Edison Intermediate School students on Jan. 28. Her presentation came as students and staff across the district recognized International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

MLK Contest

A Fresh Learning Experience

Honoring our Veterans

Whether writing letters and handmade cards, reading books about patriotism and heroes, holding assemblies, or learning how Veterans Day was established, students in the Westfield Public Schools paid tribute on Nov. 11 to the nation’s men and women in uniform, past and present, to thank them for their service and sacrifice.
