Red Cross Club at Widefield High School
The Red Cross Club at WHS is promoting disaster preparedness. The club put together a large display about how people can get ready and respond to the threat of wildfires in our area.
They also held a bake sale and collected $240 for the Red Cross Measles and Rubella Initiative. Great to see young faces giving back to their community and helping us all be better prepared and more resilient. Red Cross volunteer Jocelyn Schneider is the Southeast Colorado Youth Club Lead and coordinates activities. Cathryn Ford is the faculty sponsor for the Widefield High School Red Cross Club.

Two WHS Students Receive $3,500 Film Fellowship
Janitell TED Talks
Shauna Hershberger's advanced language arts class has been working on a project called 20% Time (based on Google's model). They have had 20% of their class time to research an area about which they feel passionate and then decide how to use that passion to impact the school, the community, or the world at large. Students have held a "Don't Be Greedy, Help the Needy" campaign to collect donation for TESSA and the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region here in Colorado Springs. Another is running a campaign called "3-2-1 No Hate," a school-wide initiative to end hatred and make everyone feel welcome. Some have created PSA videos, others wrote and directed short films and the list goes on!
