This week students at Westview Middle School planted a number of trees on our campus. These trees were planted to replace some of the ash trees at Westview that have been affected by the Emerald Ash Borer. This is the culmination of a project where our students partnered with Boulder County Parks and Open Space and the St. Vrain Grounds Department. These students learned about the Emerald Ash Borer and it's impact in Colorado. They learned about a variety of tree species and why they would be best for our school.
Westview Art teacher Elizabeth Nicholson was honored on Saturday night as the Teacher of the Year at Westview.
