They'll be moving on soon...

sandwich buildingSara credits Westfield for contributing to the person she is today. “The friendships I have made, the teachers I have met, the traditions I have experienced, all of these are parts of Westfield that are now a part of me. Westfield is a place of pure joy and unforgettable memories.” 


Sara has many Westfield memories and traditions that she cherishes. “A particularly precious memory I have is from my first year here; a Shakespeare musical we performed, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.  The entire journey, from rehearsals to final performances, was a journey filled with fun, laughter, and memories worth a lifetime.” She also enjoyed her class trips to Camp Dark Waters and Virginia, as well as the end of year performances in June.“It's the perfect way to end the school year.” 


tripSara also recognizes the significance of her academic journey at Westfield. “ My two favorite [science projects] are the rocket project and the colony project. In sixth grade, we had a colony project in which we had to create a colony on a different planet. My group had settled on Europa (one of Jupiter's moons). We had built miniature houses and people, creating a beautifully decorated town. We have also built and launched rockets in science class [. . .] launching them in the rain and trying to catch them as they fell back from the sky was very enjoyable.” 


Sara will take Westfield’s impact with her as she enters into high school. “My time at Westfield has shaped me into who I am today. This school has taught me so much more than academics. It has taught me about Quaker values and life lessons that are a part of my identity. The memories and knowledge I have gained here will forever be cherished. My time at Westfield is not just a chapter in my story; it’s a defining part of my life that I will always remember and love.”
