Placeholder Image
A tradition that dates back to the 1960s will continue in August at Westwood Church of Christ.After a one-year hiatus, kindergarten will return to Westwood Day School under the direction of certified teacher Catherine Stubblefield Bryant.The Westwood school calendar will mirror that of the Warren County School System. The first day of kindergarten is set for Aug. 7.“We started kindergarten here at Westwood in 1967 before it was mandated by the state so we were ahead of the game,” said Bill Webb, who helps oversee Westwood Day School. “Back then, there were so few kindergarten programs available, you pretty much had to get your child’s name on the waiting list as soon as they were born there was so much interest.”Linda Gilbert was Westwood’s first kindergarten teacher.
