Westwood Goes Solar

Those parents who have been to the building in the past month may have noticed some significant (but not disruptive!) work happening on our roofs - as evidenced by the yellow flags along the roofline over the pool/recreation portion of the building. Ours is one of four Westwood schools that have begun installing solar panels as part of a major town initiative. The panels we are receiving are being installed on the roof of the gym and pool and over the band room. Installation began in November and has, so far, resulted in no noise (i.e. walking around on the roof overhead, drilling into the roof, power disruptions, etc.); the work being done on the roof over the band room will be done after school hours.

The panels should be operational just after the winter holiday. Students won't notice anything different unless their classrooms have windows that overlook the roofs where they are being installed. 



Above: A worker looks over the solar panels being installed on the roof over the pool.

As you might assume, this change is a big win for the environment and for our modeling of making environmentally friendly consumer choices. And, of course, it will deliver savings on energy costs, as you might imagine. Our facilities team has been great about managing the installation schedule to make sure it doesn't impact classes.

Reminder: Parent Teacher Conferences: December 8, 6:30 - 8:30pm

In Case You Missed It: An Overview of “The Impact of Marijuana on Teens and Young Adults”

Westwood Cares organized a parent speaker event on November 15th, featuring Rick Cresta, LICSW, a professor at Boston University School of Social Work and an expert in the field with over 20 year of experience working with teens and young adults. The event was designed to provide factual information and pointers that would help parents determine how to talk about marijuana with their child.

The event was funded by grants from the Foundation for Westwood Education and the Community Health Network Area 18.

If you were unable to make it to the event, you are welcome to view the event here, courtesy of WestCAT:
https://youtu.be/mv_g5p0_UUg.

Summary: Mr. Cresta spoke for more than an hour about the impact of marijuana on young people, a topic of increased importance as the drug’s taboo has been reduced over time in response to legislative changes and enthusiastic support by prominent public figures. However, he underscored the notion that marijuana has harmful and long-lasting effects on the developing brains of teens that the drug’s advocates ignore. Though acknowledging that pot does less harm than other drugs, using the drug at a young age can alter how teens seek and feel pleasure.

Key takeaway points for busy parents:

  • Potency is on the rise: Marijuana sold today is more potent that it was 10 or 20 years ago
  • Benefits are hyped: There are therapeutic benefits of marijuana (i.e. easing pain or discomfort in cancer patients), but these benefits are often overstated by recreational users
  • Teens are particularly vulnerable to long-term ill effects of habitual usage: the earlier in life a user began smoking is crucial; users who smoke at a young age are more likely to develop a chronic habit, and developing brains are impacted more profoundly than the brains of users who began smoking later in life.

Tips for parents:

  • Avoid lecturing. Begin a dialogue with your son or daughter about their opinions.
  • Share your concern about their health - rather than as a comment on their character.
  • Avoid scare tactics (i.e. ‘pot is a gateway drug’, etc.) and focus instead on how smoking marijuana - especially for chronic users - impacts their ability to and motivation for achieving important goals, like going to college. 
  • Delay, delay, delay. Focus on the importance of pushing experimentation off as far into adulthood as possible, or never, ideally. 

For more detailed information, consult the Marijuana Talk Kit.

News From the Nurse's Office

School Lunch/Menu Information: You may wonder what your child eats when they buy lunch at school.  Click here to see the daily menu.  You can also see how many carbs are in each menu item and information about allergens.
There is also an app for your smartphone that shows you the menu. The free app, called School Lunch by Nutrislice, is available in the Apple App Store for iPhones and in Google Play for Android phones. 
The smartphone app shows each day’s menu, including pictures and descriptions of the foods. It also lists nutritional information for each food and makes finding common allergens simple.

It also lists the carbs which is a great feature if your child has diabetes.  Your child can figure out the carbs before school or right before lunch.  It will make it easier to figure out the correct dose of insulin.  Review the site and help your child access it if you feel it is appropriate.


Grade 9:  Important!!  All grade 9 students are required to provide written documentation of a current physical exam done by their health care provider.  The physical must be turned in by February 1, 2017 and must be dated February 1, 2016 or later.  Please turn in the physical as soon as possible. If you don’t have health insurance, you can visit www.MAhealthconnector.org or call the school nurse for information.  If you have a physical scheduled after February 1, 2017, please let the school nurse know. 

Grade 9: All grade 9 students will have a postural screening done during the month of December.  The purpose of this is to find early signs of possible spinal problems in your child.  It is not a diagnostic service but a program to help identify children who may need further evaluation.  If your child needs further evaluation you will be notified and asked to take your child to a health care provider as a precaution.  The majority of students do not need further evaluation.  If you don’t want your child screened at school, you must submit a written request to Mrs. Poreda in the nurse’s office by December 12, 2016.
 
Grade 10: All grade 10 students have had their vision and hearing screened.  You already may have received a letter asking that your child be evaluated by their health care provider.  If you received a letter, please return it to the nurse after having it filled out by the health care provider.  Please call the nurse with any questions at ext. 3353 or 3350.
Fire Safety Quiz: Take this very brief informative quiz about fire safety especially during the holiday season.  It may save your life.

Teens and Drugs: Many of us have medications in our medicine cabinets that are years past the expiration date or we save medications we no longer need.  Remember that teenagers often start abusing medications that are found in a medicine cabinet at home or at a friend’s home.  You can bring medications to the Westwood Police Department and dispose of them in the container in the lobby.  You put them in the container yourself and no questions are asked!  This is a great way to keep prescription drugs out of the hands of teenagers.  It also keeps them out of our water supply as many people just pour medicine down the drain or flush them. 

Information: Please feel free to call the nurse with any questions you may have about your child’s health, forms that need to be filled out, or any other question you may have.  The nurse can be reached at ext. 3353 or 3350.   You can also email Mrs. Poreda or Mrs. Galvin with any questions.  Check out the health office web site for information and forms.  Never  hesitate to call if you have a question.
 
Illness at School: If your child is ill during the school day, tell your child to go to the nurse’s office.  The nurse will call you if your child needs to go home.  If a child texts you we don’t know where they are when you come to pick them up.  It is also beneficial for the nurse to take care of your child until you can pick them up.
 
Hand Hygiene: Remind your child to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer frequently during the school day.  This helps to reduce illness for your child and for the school community.  Also remind them to cough or sneeze into their elbow instead of their hands.  This also will reduce the spread of illness. 
 
If your child has any health concerns or you have any questions, please call Mrs. Poreda at ext. 3353 or Mrs. Galvin at ext. 3350.

A Message from SEPAC

Did you know that there is a Parent Advisory Council in every school district in Massachusetts with the specific role of acting as a liaison between parents of students with disabilities and the School Committee and school administration? 
Westwood Public Schools is lucky to have an energetic and committed group of parents who are looking to increase the visibility and supportive role of Westwood’s Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC).  In order to do this, Westwood Public Schools and the SEPAC are asking for input from the Westwood community about what would be most useful to parents and students. Are you looking for guest speakers?  Interested in attending workshops? Maybe looking to find social connections and brainstorming? You don’t have to have a child in the schools with a disability to share your ideas. Please consider responding to this SEPAC survey.
 You are also welcome to learn more about how to join and support this organization at the Westwood Public Schools’ website.

Foreign Language Department Looking for Community Contacts

We would like to increase the connection between our classroom instruction and applications outside of the classroom.  We looking for native speakers of Spanish, French or Mandarin or individuals who regularly deal with these populations and cultures to come to classes to share experiences with our students.   Additionally we are looking for opportunities for our students to engage more directly with Spanish, French or Mandarin speakers in Massachusetts. If you have any connections that would help facilitate this goal, we would appreciate hearing from you.  

If you have interest but your work schedule prohibits you to come to the school during the day, we can always video tape your contribution!

Please email Kathy Lee 
or call at 781-326-7500 X3313 if you are interested.

Site Council Update

The WHS Site Council is an advisory group to the principal. The group is comprised of teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members. Specifically, the group provides input on the principal's School Improvement Plan (SIP), meeting each month to receive updates on initiatives related to the SIP. 

Summary of the 12/6/16 Meeting: 

  • The group reported their findings after reading a sample guidebook for international travel from an area high school. Suggestions made by the group will be considered and incorporated in a similar guidebook for Westwood.
  • Sean reported out the FY18 budget timeline (tentative): January  -  Proposal to School Committee; February - Proposal under consideration; March - School Committee votes.

  • Sean reported out that the school is continuing to look at the gender achievement gap. The school saw measurable results in a Jump Start academy held in 2015. The school will be looking at possible funding streams for the program in addition to possible programmatic changes and speakers.

  • The group also discussed the success of Homecoming and Spirit Week. Students reported seeing an increase in school spirit and more than 450 students attended the Homecoming dance.

Holiday Toy Drive for Dorchester YMCA

Many of us have a joyful holiday season filled with families, gifts, and smiles! But 42% of children go throughout the holiday season without those three things. How good would it feel to help those children?

As part of WHS student Janiah Jamison’s senior project, she will be hosting a toy drive in support of the Dorchester YMCA. The YMCA hosts over 500 families a year, in hopes of creating a safe place for the children of the community. Many of those children are part of the 42% that can't afford a joyful holiday, and this is why it is so important to give back!

The Toy drive will begin Monday, December 5th and end Wednesday, December 14th. All toys will benefit children ages 5-9 and can be dropped off in the donation box in the main lobby! New and or like-new toys are accepted and appreciated!

Thank you for your support!

Holiday Drive for Cradles to Crayons

From Monday, December 5th through Thursday, December 15th, Westwood High is hosting a holiday drive for winter clothes and toys in affiliation with Cradles to Crayons (C2C). C2C is a non-profit organization which works to supply under-privileged kids within the Boston area with items most people take for granted (all types of clothing, as well as toiletries, toys, and books/backpacks). Donation bins will be located in the Administration Office, Guidance Department, and the Library. We are specifically looking for new and gently used winter clothing (coats, gloves, boots, etc.) and holiday toys. All donations are very much appreciated and will help us meet our goal to provide happier holidays for families in need. Please email Matt Capone with any questions.

Ally Week: December 12 - 16

During the week of December 12th-16th, the high school is recognizing our 9th annual Ally Week, organized by the Gay-Straight Alliance. Ally Week is a celebration of the belief that schools should be safe, supportive places for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. It is a time to be allies against anti-LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer) language, bullying, and harassment. Each year, Ally Week is a beautiful, rainbowy expression of the work we do together to make this school an even better, safer place for all members of our community.

News From Mandarin Club

The Mandarin Club recently celebrated Pengyou Day (Pengyou is "friendship" in Chinese) by inviting friends from the Culinary Arts Club to a Chinese dumpling fest.  Students learned how to bao jiaozi - wrap up dumplings filled with meat and vegetables - and learned about the different methods to cook them.  Students also shared recipes and demonstrated cooking techniques to prepare fried rice, Cantonese noodles and tang yuan - sweet rice dumplings.  All was devoured with dexterous use of chopsticks!  In the spirit of Pengyou Day, Mandarin Club students shared their knowledge of China with others to promote collaboration, inclusion, and mutual understanding in their community.  And to eat good food.

Local Westwood Writer Leads Poetry Workshop

This fall seniors enrolled in Creative Writing had the unique opportunity to write alongside a published author and poet, Kathy Giugliano, parent of WHS sophomore Dante Giugliano.

Kathy Giuliano (who often publishes under her maiden name, Kathleen Latham) has been the grand prize winner of the Writer’s Digest Short Story Competition in addition to having her work published in numerous literary journals.  Over 4 days of visits, Ms. Giugliano led a Q&A on her writing process, guided students through various writing exercises, and finally held 1:1 writing conferences. The week culminated in seniors sharing their own original poetry. As they did, students remarked on the value of her feedback and the power of poetry to express emotion.

Thank you, Ms. Giugliano, for your generosity and support, and kudos to the senior writers who took a risk in exploring and sharing their original poetry!

Small Group Student-Led MFA Tours - A Big Hit!

On November 18th, 44 art students from Ms. Jellinghaus's Advanced Ceramics and Sculpture classes went for an all day field trip to the MFA and Isabella Stewart Gardner museums.  

Attempting to make our one day art field trip to the MFA and Gardner museums more student-centric and engaging, we decided to experiment with entirely student-led discussions (for our morning time at the MFA galleries). The large group of 44 students was divided into smaller groups of 5-6 students with 1-2 "leads." These leads led the small group discussion on 11 works of art, from galleries across the 1st floor of the MFA. (The leads had reviewed the works ahead of time, but the others had not.) These works all related, whether directly or indirectly, to the theme the HUMAN BODY, as part of our larger theme for Term 2.

In these small peer groups, students explored the difference between ancient and contemporary art and posed and responded to each others' questions.  Student groups spent 5+ minutes on each piece and then the groups rotated to the next work.  

As chaperones, Mr. Bevan, Ms. Chaloff and I had the pleasure of observing students teach each other. We occasionally chimed in, but predominately stepped back to let the learning process unfold without us.  It was a lot of fun to watch.  In a student survey, the large majority preferred this to adult-led tours, so I was glad we tried this experiment.
The students in the TEC Moderate Transition I classroom delivered thank you cards to the veterans at the West Roxbury V.A. hospital. The cards were made by the students and their peers from Friendship Club to celebrate and honor Veteran’s day.
As you complete your holiday shopping, don't forget the easy and free way your Amazon puirchases can benefit the PTO: through the Amazon Smile program, the WHS PTO receives 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases.

All you have to do is begin your Amazon shopping by clicking HERE. It's free for you, but the funds add up to help the PTO support our school programs.

Peer Tutoring is Now Available

National Honor Society students are now available for tutoring in Guidance. Please see this SCHEDULE for details. 

WHS Photos for Scholarships

Please feel free to download the images on this website for free. I donate my time to take the photos because I enjoy photography and watching sports. If you enjoy these photos, please consider making a donation to the Westwood Community Scholarship Fund (or another scholarship at WHS).

Thank you.
