No place for hate week
The theme of this year's annual No Place For Hate Week was 'Know Better, Do Better.' The ASB Culture Commission focused this past week on the idea that the best way to achieve acceptance and tolerance is through education. Throughout the week, ASB organized several educational cultural activities, including Ted Talks from Westview's TED-ED Club, a Culture Rush with performances from SACS, KASA, VSA, and Bayanihan, an End the R Word event with Best Buddies, and an assembly with motivational speaker Tyler Durman.

Black History Month
Westview dedicated this past week to the celebration of Black History Month. Quotes from famous African American leaders and informational posters detailing their accomplishments were hung up throughout our school. Students had the opportunity to win candy if they came up to the ASB booth in the quad and gave us one accomplishment or contribution of an African American figure posted on campus. Recently, ASB has been putting on more of these types of events to really move culture forward on campus. Westview culture is student culture, meaning everyone on campus plays a key role. We aim to facilitate these expressions of culture and get everyone involved.
