Ways to Get Involved
Student Council (STUCO)
There will be two students from each grade elected to represent their class each year. If you are interested in STUCO and serving your class by providing input into student activities, this is for you. Elections will be held in the second week of school. All three school events are planned by STUCO: Fall Fest, Sadie Hawkins, and Prom. They also host two to three class parties each year with activities such as snow tubing, bullwinkles parties, bowling, movie nights, game nights, karaoke and more.
If you have any questions about STUCO, email Miss. Ashley Ames.
Student ministry team (smt)
This team focuses on the spiritual life of the student body. If you would like to make an impact for Christ among the students, this is a way to foster discipleship among your peers. You will be able to use the talents the Lord has given you to work at events like Community nights and Chapels.
SMT is an amazing opportunity to serve the Westside community through spiritual life and student leadership. If you are at all interested in joining this team, please look over the job description and fill out an application (click here for more info).
If you would like to get involved or learn more, contact Mrs. Streimer.
These students are selected to represent WCHS at a variety of events, which include Open Houses, Back to School nights, and guides for new students and other outreach to the community. If you are outgoing and love to meet new people, this is a great opportunity for you.
You can be a student ambassador by contacting Mr. Housley.

Students can also take Digital Design and learn the skills of Photoshop and Illustrator. Lastly, Westside offers a yearbook class that provides students an opportunity to represent their year at Westside.

Westside started a theatre program in 1987. Students have the opportunity to participate in one play acts and a musical each year.
