West High’s Student Senate competed in the Hunger Drive Kick-off Skit competition at the new Riverbend Food Bank facility. Out of 13 schools participating, West took 2nd place. Students came up with original lyrics to “We Will We Will Rock You,” accompanied by drummers using buckets decorated as canned goods. It was awesome! Click here for more pictures.

Help West High collect money to purchase food for the Food Drive. Set aside Wednesday, October 15, to bring your hungry family to the Panera near Northpark. If you’re not hungry then, pick up a couple dozen bagels to freeze for later. Our goal is to have 50 people eat at Panera’s or buy takeout between 4:00 and 8:00 Wednesday, October 15. You’ll need to give Panera the coupon they’ve given us. Get your coupon from a Senator or the front desk in the Main Office. As always, we appreciate your help.
