The NHS blood drive will be on Friday, May 11 from 7:30 am until 3 pm in the auditorium. Remind those who are giving for you starting in March so they won’t give in another drive (they have to wait 6 weeks before giving again.) We will have T-shirts again and are looking for sponsors. Please contact vdavis@westwoodschools.org if you’d like to have your company name on these shirts.

Community service is what we do at Westwood and there are many projects going on right now that need your support. Please join in.

Please send in your White Christmas assigned item by next Wednesday, December 14th.

Every year the school has several families in need that we work to help fill their pantry. This is a service project of our high school student government led by Jennifer Good. Please be generous and help these families. For those who wish to help who are grandparents and others, talk to Jennifer Good at 229-336-7992.

The Westwood Y-Club collected 56 shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and collected $350 to send boxes. These were delivered to Union Grove Church (the pick up center) on November 17th. Lower middle and high school participated. Mrs. Carla’s class submitted the largest number of boxes per homeroom so her 8th grade homeroom is the recipient of a pizza party. Thank you for supporting this worthy cause!

It is basketball season. Remember to come. Wear your orange and white and support our cats. Fans in the stands always make a difference. When our cheerleaders cheer, we need to hear your voices. Let’s continue to show that Wildcat spirit at everything we do. It is part of who we are.

Mrs. Vicki’s computer fundamentals class is designing Christmas cards in photoshop this year. Look for a selection to be mailed out from our board.
