Red Ribbon Week, 2018

Friday, October 26th, Westport celebrated the end of Red Ribbon Week with the traditional Impact Awareness Day! Random students were selected by their core teachers to have their faces painted white and black. The chosen few weren’t allowed to talk to anyone except for the teachers or staff.

“The paint represents those who died to drug or alcohol related incidents. It’s a very somber occasion that deserves to be recognized!” PT stated to the Scary Clown following her through the seizure inducing Hotel Of Terror.

Ready for the statistics? 28% of teenage adolescents have used alcohol, 15% have smoked cigarettes, 16.5% have used marijuana. 5000 people under 21 die each year from alcohol related crashes, homicide, suicides, alcohol poisoning, and other injuries. More than 190,000 visited an emergency room for serious injuries related to alcohol. Teens who constantly learn about the risks regarding drugs and alcohol are 50% less likely to use them than those who don’t.

What are Sports For?

What are sports for? They can help with your fitness. It includes all forms of competitive physical activity or games which, through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing enjoyment to participants, and in some cases, entertainment for spectators. That is why we should have school sports. Thank you!!!

Happy November! Timely information! Act now!

We would like to share the following information from James River Church.

James River Church is partnering with Westport K-8 to provide a Thanksgiving basket stuffed full of all the food you will need for your Thanksgiving meal! Anyone who is in need of assistance this holiday season is welcome to sign up!

If you would like you family to receive a Thanksgiving basket, simple call the school by Friday, November 9th. This will give enough time to get together all the items necessary for each family to receive an entire Thanksgiving meal, including the turkey and trimmings!

Baskets will be available for pick up at your school on Saturday, November 17th.

We pray for blessings on your family as you enter this holiday season.
