2018-2019 Year Recap
This semester and school year have been filled with challenges and triumphs for all of our students. We have come together so many times as a school, supporting and encouraging each other. Thank you, Westview and community, for a wonderful 2018-2019 school year at Westview High school. Now, please enjoy our annual Westview Experience video, brought to you by ASB.
Feb 5 - Lunar New Year
Our winter dance was a formal this year, and the theme was “Tale as Old as Time.” As tradition follows, we had a week of spirit days and activities leading up to our winter rally on the friday before the dance.
This year, we also incorporated a book drive in honor of Belle’s love for reading. We partnered with Reach Out and Read San Diego, a local chapter of a nationwide organization that provides books to underprivileged children.
Finally, our dance was held at the Hilton Del Mar, with music provided by both SOS Entertainment and a student band called Natural Disaster. The dance also featured a photobooth, chocolate fountains, and an outdoor patio area with fireplaces and heaters.
