As the year progresses, there are certain high school milestones that help pace the school year. Homecoming week is one of those events. While last year we celebrated 50 Years of WHS with alumni, past faculty, and alumni brunch, this year will be modified for our current conditions. We hope to make this a memory filled week even with limitations.
We are excited about this year’s 2020 Homecoming activities, as the Student Council is working hard on planning events for the Homecoming Week. Next week (10/12-10/15), Homecoming Court nomination forms will be sent out to students to nominate members for the Homecoming Court ballot. Homecoming Court voting will then occur the week of October 19th. Our Homecoming Court will be announced during a Virtual Pep Rally on the morning of October 30th. Student Council is working in conjunction with Westlake Film and the Westlake TEC to bring us the Virtual Pep Rally featuring performances by the Westlake Chaparral Marching Band, Hyline, and Westlake Cheer, along with our 2020 Homecoming Court announcement.
We will also be having our Homecoming Spirit Week, from October 26th-October 30th. Dress up Spirit Days will include Friday as Red, White, and Blue Day-the other days will be announced soon. Student Council will be having a Spirit Week competition for the most spirited outfits through the Student Council Instagram account - @westlakestuco. We look forward to seeing all of our students, both in person and remote, along with our staff, dressed up for Spirit Days.
The virtual format allows all of our students to watch the marvelous video of our outstanding performance groups. Thanks to the Student Council for making this year as special as it can be for our students, staff and community!
PTO is selling Homecoming Mums for Seniors only this year; additional information can be found at whspto.net.
Have a wonderful three day weekend.
