Good afternoon,

I wanted to say "thank you" to all of the families that provided food, beverages, and other items for the 3rd Annual Rajiv Paluri International Night.  The night was a complete success and the Paluri Family is grateful to the entire community for the support.  With all of the donations at the door, we were able to raise over $2000 for the Rajiv Paluri Memorial Foundation.  I would also like to send my appreciation to Burton's Grill, Evviva Cucina, the Westford House of Pizza, Westford Convenience  (Main St.) and to Rangoli Grill for their donations to the event.  A special "shout out to Mr. Rich Chenell for providing all of the paper good, cutlery, and tablecloths!  


Students received their pictures from Lifetouch today.  We will be having retakes for any student interested in a retake or missed the original photo day on Monday, November 13th at WA.  Retakes will be take place in the Lecture Hall RM 144 from 8:00-2:00 PM.  Students that need retakes must try to go during their lunch period or free blocks or in between classes.  

From the Westford Academy Guidance Department
Sophomore and Junior students received an email with a survey link to select career speakers they'd like to meet with at the Career Exploration Breakfast which will be held on December 6.  Every effort will be made to place students in two of their top three choices for this mandatory event.  Students are encouraged to complete a career survey in Naviance and review the results which will aid them in their selections.  The deadline for students to submit their selections is Wednesday, November 15th.  After this deadline, careers will be assigned.
