Westfield Elementary Dedicates Park Programming Center

On Thursday, August 31, Westfield Elementary School dedicated the new Park Programming Center, a space in the school’s library that will be used to teach students coding and programming skills.

The Programming Center is named in honor of Catherine Park, the mother of three CCSD 89 students. Catherine Park, 46, died unexpectedly during a family vacation in Costa Rica in 2016. Her family made a $22,000 donation to provide opportunities for all students to learn more about the field she worked in. Read the full article here.

GPS Parent Library Now Available

During our PTC meeting we had the pleasure of hearing from Gilda Ross from the Glenbard Parent Series. The goal of the Parent Series is to facilitate real-world parenting skills that enhance social and emotional development, encourage responsible decision-making, and promote respect-based relationships.

We have created a “Parent Library” full of the books that this group has introduced. Feel free to investigate and check out books through Mrs. Cardona in the Westfield office.
