Partiot Tickets

In order to recognize positive behavior at Westwood High School, the staff put together a list of expectations/characteristics that define what it means to be a Westwood Patriot. Students who display these behaviors are given a Patriot Ticket which enters the into a weekly drawing for things like gift cards, food, etc. Below is a list of the Patriot Expectations.

The goal of this idea is to promote positive behavior throughout the school and recognize those students who choose to make good choices.

If you are interested in donating rewards, you can reach out to Mr. Fossitt at fossittc@nice.k12.mi.us. We appreciate any support you are able to give.

Mrs. Grout's Advanced Biology class participated in a Forensic Anthropology presentation with Dr. Harris, the director of the FROST lab at NMU.
