Library Tech Club

The first meeting of LTC was a ton of fun!  If you showed up and want to get the link to all the avatars, the mind map is located here!  There is still time to join.  The meeting dates for the month of September are 9/6, 9/13, 9/20, and 9/27.  All meetings end at 4:50 and there is no late bus, so make sure you get a ride!

Maggie Stiefvater is coming to Westfield!

We are so lucky to have an amazing author coming to our school on Monday, October 1st!  The author is named Maggie Stiefvater and she has written many books, including the popular Shiver seriesThe Scorpio races, and The Raven Boys!
