The Athletics Department is running a new contest to see “Who is Westisle’s Biggest Fan?” To participate, head down to the schedules by the gym doors to see when our teams are playing. Then, attend the game, and while you’re there, take a picture of yourself with the game going on in the background. Post your image to Instagram or Twitter with the tag #wolverine-west and you will be entered into a draw for two movie tickets.
The week of Oct. 1, Westisle Student Council organized a theme week that encouraged students to dress up, showing off their school spirit.
