Seniors:   If you are interested in Westfield State University, and if you have pretty good grades but have test scores that might not be as good, think about going on a field trip to the Open House program on Thursday, November 16, during school, to learn about their excellent Urban Education program.  It includes a free credit-bearing summer program and a support system for students during all four years of college.  If this sounds good to you, please see Mrs. Cappelli to put your name on a list of interested students.
