Welcome home for the holidays!

When we say welcome home we mean home. We are inviting you to come and spend alumni week at the place that has truly become home for the entire Westside family, past and present. God has been incredibly gracious to give us this place. It has nearly three times the square footage and all of the warmth of any other place that we have leased, but it is ours. And it is the place where memories will be forged for generations to come. This year we will be enjoying our alumni basketball game for the first time in our new campus gym.

Christmas Concert & Art Show: Monday, December 12 @ 6:00 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.

The evening begins at 6:00 p.m. with our annual Winter Art Show and follows at 7:00 p.m. with our traditional Christmas Concert. One of the standing traditions is to allow choir alums to join the current choir on the final selection of the evening, entitled “Messiah has Come”. Relive those precious memories in choir by joining them. Follow this link to a copy of the music and soundtrack to refresh your memory.

Alumni Chapel: Wednesday, December 14 @ 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. 

John Hanscom, WCHS Class of 2012 and Biola University Class of 2016, graduated as a business marketing major, and now works for Nike in their soccer division. Among his responsibilities he co-leads Nike’s social media twitter accounts for domestic and global soccer. A two-time West Valley League Player of the Year at Westside, John continued to play soccer at Biola and received NAIA All-American honorable mention honors, while twice being named the GSAC Offensive Player of the Week.  Our alumni worship team will be led by Jonathan Wee, WCHS Class of 2015, and current student at Azusa Pacific Univ., who has just returned from a semester in South Africa.

Alumni Coffee & Cookie Reception: Wednesday, December 14, 10:30 – 11:00 a.m.

Right after chapel we will gather in our Commons to allow alums to catch up with each other, while sipping on a complimentary latte or mocha and munching on freshly baked cookies. For those who haven’t made it to our new campus, at 11am there will be a tour of the new facility, concluding with our new gymnasium.

Alumni Basketball Game:  Friday, December 16, from 12:33 — 1:18 p.m. 

This year we are bringing back the tradition of an alumni basketball game on the last day of Alumni Week. Two alumni teams will battle it out for new campus bragging rights. Come relive a little taste of the past and catch a glimpse of the present spirit that continues to be Westside. Once an Eagle, always an Eagle!

Free Admission for Alumni and Family to Varsity Basketball Games:  Friday, December 16, 6:00 p.m. for Girl’s game and 7:30 p.m. for Boy’s game against Toledo.

Come as our guest and enjoy watching this year’s Westside Eagles take on the Toledo Boomers in our 10,000 square foot gymnasium, complete with comfortable bleachers (yes, that’s right, no chairs) that seat 500.  Between the fans, cheerleaders, and Eagle Beat Drum Corp it is bound to be a rockin’ environment.  We look forward to seeing you come “home for the holidays”.
