Our Westfield High School Ape-Men sang for the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) major organization evaluation festival held at Chautauqua Lake High School last month. The students were required to sing a short program of three selections for two NYSSMA certified adjudicators. The group was judged according to standards that mirror New York State’s standards for music education. The group of 26 Westfield High School students received the Gold award, which is the hardest and most prestigious to achieve. Group member and senior, Ethan Perdue responded “It felt great to have such an amazing accomplishment! We met the night before to try to get it together, and it really worked out!” Director Kent Knappenberger stated “This was a testament to some super-hard-working kids. Surviving the pandemic as a music student hasn’t been easy, but they did it and even went above and beyond. I’m really happy that they performed so well and received this recognition. It’s nice to get a second opinion on student success!” Congratulations to these talented Westfield High School students. Their plaque will be proudly hung in the

Students competed in the Soap Box Derby on Saturday in Jamestown as a finale to their work with Mr. Martin. Grayson Mazza drove the derby car supported by the crew of Tahner Stow and Tyrick Nadi. Westfield's crew won 3 of 6 phases and finished the day with a STEM race against other school teams in the area. It was a great day working with Dream it Do it of WNY. We hope to add another car to the race next year!
