Fall Fest

Posted on:

2018 Seniors, Kellen Peterson and Eva Lammers were crowned Fall Fest King and Queen.

Students celebrated with spirit this week leading up to their annual Fall Fest at The Maize on Sauvie’s Island.

From dressing up in costumes to wearing all black to cheer on the volleyball team to their victorious win against Riverdale, and donning their flannel for the evening of line dancing, students were in the spirit of Fall.

On Wednesday night, Westside students enjoyed line dancing, walking through the corn maze, painting pumpkins, and enjoying a bonfire together. The Fall Fest King, Kellen Peterson, and Queen, Eva Lammers also received their pumpkin crowns.

The Choir, Soli Deo Gloria, Concert Band, and soloist blessed the audience with traditional and contemporary pieces, celebrating the coming of Christ to the earth. Many alumni joined the Choir in their traditional musical finale of Messiah Has Come and Let Us Adore.

Thanks to Mr. Fox and all of the students for serving us such a special evening!

Cultural Gala: April 24

Posted on:

This coming Monday, April 24th from 7:00-9:00pm, Westside will host its first ever International Cultural Gala. It is a chance to see and hear our 36 international students from 7 different countries tell their stories and share their cultures with us in a special way.

Come sample some of their favorite foods, see demonstrations of some of their favorite art forms, hear them be interviewed about their passions and dreams. Some will share how school is different in their country than in the United States. You can come for all of it or just a little, but please come and join in the fun. You won’t want to miss it!

Live Salted Breakfast

Posted on:

On Saturday (2/18) A Jesus Youth held a breakfast that Westside’s Student Body President Kate Pitcher organized for middle and high school aged girls. Krista Hengesh and Brooklyn Wagner from Live Salted Ministries came and spoke to over 70 young women about their identity and value in the Kingdom of God. After the guest speakers shared, the girls were led through a response time and activity about realizing their identity in Jesus, and then given the opportunity to discuss. The impact for all of the girls was pronounced, and it was a great time of creating new friendships and encouraging one another in faith.

Westside’s Mrs. W & her husband Andrew welcomed adorable Charlotte Ann Witkowski, affectionately known as Charlie, this last week.

From Mrs. W: We’re doing really well! Charlie is 1 week old, loves to sleep and eat and keep mommy up by the hour at night…Such a transition for us but we’re trying to be flexible. Andrew and I love being new parents.
