Wescott Students Rocked Summer Reading!

The numbers are out from the Summer Reading Program at the Northbrook Public Library! For the 5th year in a row, Wescott had the highest number of students participate compared to all the other schools in the area!!! Way to go, Wescott readers!!!

This summer reading success is due in large part to our strong relationship with the Northbrook Public Library. We are so grateful for Ms. Sarah!

New Maker Space Activity: Make the Solar System

This week students were invited to watch the video of Mrs. Marsh taking off on her rocket ship and showing them how to make planets, the moon, and stars. Then, students got creative and tried it themselves! This maker space activity and the ones from the next few weeks will help students prepare for our end-of-year celebration: Out of this World Wescott!
