Westgate was excited to host author Amy Logan who shared how each student can be a superhero by spreading kindness every day! Students wore capes to celebrate the visit, and Ms. Logan shared her story, "A Girl With A Cape," with the whole school. Most people don't see the effect of all their kind acts, which can lead to disappointment and a sense of futility. Ms. Logan's book explores how even the smallest kind acts make a huge difference in the world - even though we might not know it. Now is a great time, on the heels of this assembly, to talk to your children about showing kindness every day - every kid can be a superhero!!!
