Westside Ringleaders

Each day students have the chance to earn Ringleader cards. Teachers and staff are always looking for opportunities to reward students with a card. After they earn a card, students place them in a basket in the office for a chance to be a weekly winner!

Be a Hallway Hero

Westside is always in need of volunteers to help our students and teachers.

In order to volunteer in our building, you must complete Hallway Hero Training through the Central Administration Office. The next opportunity for training is Tuesday, September 10th.
