The end of our week was quite busy! Teaming up with the Arlington Heights Library, AHSD 25 brought in author and illustrator Peter Brown to engage Westgate students in conversations about creating a career out of a personal passion. Peter Brown shared his journey becoming an author/illustrator and wowed us with his drawings from The Wild Robot and other children's books. If you notice your child drawing robots on his/her napkin this weekend, you might just have the next Peter Brown in the making!
Following our author visit, students and staff had the pleasure of watching Dr. Carter and Mr. Walton battle it out at Westgate's first ever Lip Sync Battle. Since the planning stages, Dr. Carter and Mr. Walton did not share out their song(s) with each other. It was a complete surprise to find out they both tackled the song “Let it Go” from Frozen. However, Dr. Carter mixed in a little bit of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” to complete his battle. The battle ended in a tie and was a huge “win-win” for Dr. Carter and Mr. Walton!
Going forward, we are continuing with our Wildly Important Goal (WIG) in the lunchroom for the remainder in the year. We will continue to reward students with other Lip Sync Battles by Westgate staff. If our students make their next goal in May, we will have a battle against Team Berger, Miller and Coach K vs. Team Belesiotis, Walsh, Mazzola, Hynek, Nelson, and MacDowell. Way to reach your goal Westgate students!
