STUDENT BULLETIN

 


This Morning’s PA Announcements:

 

  • In honor of Black History Month: I will read a fact concerning Black History: Today’s fact is: Ruby Bridges (1954 - )

Bridges probably had no idea that the bold act she committed in 1960 would set off a chain reaction leading to the integration of schools in the South. She was just six years old when she became the first African American student to attend William Frantz Elementary in Louisiana at the height of desegregation. She is now the chair of the Ruby Bridges Foundation, which was formed in 1999 to promote "the values of tolerance, respect, and appreciation of all differences."

  • Anyone interested in trying out for softball, there will be an informational meeting Wednesday, February 26th before school at 8am in B241. 

  • For any girls interested in playing lacrosse this spring, there will be a parent and player meeting this Thursday at 6pm in room D103

  • At the state speech & acting tournament on Friday and Saturday, West placed 2nd at state, one point behind state champion Downer's Grove South.  We had finalists in six events, including THREE state champions:

Delaney Holliday -- state champion in prose, state champion in poetry

Jaylon Muchison -- state champion in declamation, 7th in dramatic interpretation

Max Juhas -- 3rd in extemporaneous speaking

Jojo Holm -- 7th in original comedy

This is the highest team finish in school history.  It's also the first time we have had more than one state champion in a year, and Delaney is the first student in school history with multiple state championships (she also won state in dramatic interpretation last year).

  • Congratulations to Riley Elam for advancing to the state wrestling tournament and to Dustin “Diggy” Olmstead on his 3rd place finish and to Josh Koderhandt on his perfect season of 43 – p and the winning of the state championship this past weekend.
