In an effort to improve safety, security and supervision of
the Westfield Campus, D13 has installed video surveillance cameras
throughout the school building. The cameras will be used in
common areas of the school for the primary purpose of promoting
a safe and secure environment for students and staff. Video
recordings will only be viewed by students, parents and/or staff
with an administrator present. Disciplinary action may be taken
with students based on video documentation.
Westfield has a late bus that leaves school at approximately
5:05 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, beginning
the second week of school. This one bus covers most of our district
bus territory, makes fewer stops, and takes an
hour or more to complete its run.
February Author Visit
Westfield Middle School’s Reading Motivation Committee is excited to announce that the acclaimed author of The False Prince series, Jennifer Nielsen, will be visiting Westfield on Thursday, February 19th. During her visit, Nielsen will be talking to the students about her career and novels along with hosting a writer’s workshop that students will be able to apply to attend. Now until February 18th, our librarians will be selling both hardcover and paperback copies of Nielsen’s books: The False Prince, The Runaway King, The Shadow Throne, and her newest novel, The Mark of the Thief. During her visit, Nielsen will personalize and autograph each copy purchased. Students may pick up a purchasing order form with pricing and information about each novel from their English Language Arts teacher. Thank you for supporting Westfield Middle School’s readers and we are all looking forward to this incredible author visit in February.

Kindles, Nooks and iPads
Students have been asking their teachers if they may use these "e-readers"
(electronic readers) for their silent reading during the school
day. The answer is "YES!" Our students are digital learners
and if this makes them want to read even more, of course we would
want to encourage them to use this personal equipment to enhance
their reading abilities.
To that end, it is essential that you, as the parent,
review the technology agreement that was signed at the beginning
of the year. You can access this information in the gold pages in
the front of the student planner or pages 13, 14 and 15 or go to
our Westfield website and open the link to the "Student Planner",
Please remind your student that they must exercise care in using
these privately owned electronic devices. The school is not responsible
for lost, damaged or stolen personal electronic devices. If you
elect to have your student bring these personal electronics to school,
your student is assuming the liability and responsibility for taking
care of their personal belongings. The privately owned electronic
devices are to be used for ONLY the intended purpose within the
educational environment. The responsibility for appropriate use
of the Internet lies solely with the student user.

RtI: Response to Intervention at Westfield
Students needing additional help with reading and/or math are
participating in intervention programs during their acceleration period. These individualized
learning programs are part of a system of student interventions
called Response to Intervention, or RtI. RtI provides systematic,
research-based interventions to students who have demonstrated
that they could benefit from additional instruction and practice. Students
are identified for this programming based on their MAP, ISAT and
OLSAT test scores, as well as teacher recommendation. Student
progress is being monitored weekly through dynamic progress monitoring
tests and assessments.
We will continue to monitor all students' progress in building
their reading and math skills. Building students' reading and
math skills is a top priority, as a student's reading and math
ability impacts their learning in all of their classes on a daily

District 13 Bullying Policy
On October 25, 2010 the Board of Education updated the Anti-bullying
policy 7:180, entitled "Preventing Bullying, Intimidation,
and Harassment." This policy reflects new state mandated
legislation that gives school greater ability to address bullying
behavior that may occur at school. Please take time to read this
policy as it is aligned with our Code of Conduct in the Student
Westfield students will take part in an Internet Safety program,
as required by law. Students will complete the following anonymous
survey as part of this program:
