Alumni Spotlight – Open House Ambassadors

We were fortunate to have 7 of our alumni join us on Saturday, February 29 at our Open House/Family Social. We welcomed back James and Giselle Scannella, Bella and Joe Dicristina, Mackenzie Kreitzer, Cydney Fink and Kathleen Whitmore. They acted as Ambassadors for Westmont, greeting new families and escorting them to the classrooms. They also helped our smallest visitors with a craft.

It is always wonderful when our former students return to ‘give back’ to their first school.
