Westwood Celebrates 50

Students, teachers, parents and alumni will celebrate the school’s first 50 years from 5-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 12, at the new campus located at 10595 Hammerly.

“This is planned as a special night where we will honor past alumni and provide current faculty and staff with a ‘blast from the past’ with special tributes from the different decades,” Principal Kay Kennard reports.

Guests at Westwood Elementary’s 50th anniversary event will be able to meet past principals and teachers, as well as view student grade-level displays honoring the first five decades. The library will pay tribute to the recent decades with a variety of display books. School yearbooks that date back to the first year of operation at Westwood will also be displayed in the library.

Visitors may write messages to put into a time capsule for opening in another 25 years.

“We will end the night with a reception in our cafeteria as a thank you to all the alumni who have provided Westwood Elementary with 50 years of educational excellence,” Principal Kennard said. The public is invited.

For questions, please call Westwood Elementary at 713-251-2100.
