WCHS Cultural Gala

Westside’s 2nd annual Cultural Gala is this week! Friday night, April 6, from 7:00 to 9:00pm, you can travel the world, eat traditional dishes, and hear some compelling stories. As you walk in you will be transported to the larger world of Westside where your international friends from eight different countries will be waiting to share. Some will be hosting a table in the Commons with a personal perspective on their own country. Some will be hosting an entire classroom to give a unique window into their culture. A few will be interviewed on stage in the auditorium to give a brief slice of their own story, and how Westside has become a part of it.  And it’s all free!

We hope to see you there!

Apples with bit of sweet honey.

Last week Mr. Westerberg and some of our brand new international students used a Hebrew Rosh Hashana tradition of apples dipped in honey to express a blessing on each other to have a sweet new year. We have 34 international students from 8 different countries as part of our student body.

Here’s wishing them all a sweet new year in their new home!

Enjoying a sweet treat!
