Happening in Our District
WHS Holds Cultural Fair
The Westside High School Cultural Fair featured more than 80 displays on countries of the world. Teams of students spent several weeks getting together information and creating their booths for the Nov. 13 event. The facts and figures students gathered included country customs, language, politics, and more. (Some students even cooked or baked food from the country they studied.) A short slideshow can be viewed byáfollowing this link.
WHS Career Center Students Help in the Neighborhood
Westside High School Career Center students were offered an opportunity to earn service learning hours on Nov. 2. áTwo students and two teachers volunteered to do yard work for an elderly couple in the school neighborhood. Students earned four service learning hours for their participation. The elderly couple stopped by Career Center's front desk on election day and said how thankful they were for the help and that everyone did a fantastic job. A short slideshow is available at this link.
Biometrics Set to Speed Up Cafeteria Lines
Paying for lunch at Westside Middle School and Westside High School will soon take just a quick touch on a pad when a new biometric system goes live in early December. áThe two secondary schools will be the first in the Omaha metropolitan area to use this new technology to help speed up cafeteria lines. áTo learn more, follow this link
