Community Service Week

There is no shortage of civic-mindedness in Westfield Public Schools and Community Service Week was no exception. Through the coordinated efforts of school Parent Teacher Organizations, students across the district packed lunches, designed greeting cards, made care packages, picked up litter, and participated in many other activities as a way of giving back to those in need.
