Westside Dance is busy... very busy.  This week, we have two dance performances to look forward to. First, the annual "No Costume Concert" will be held in the Auditorium on Thursday at 5 p.m. Tickets are $5. 

This show will feature all of the dance students enrolled in Mrs. Demartino, Mr. Rivera, and Ms. Roberts' classes.

The week wraps up on Saturday as the Inertia Dance Company hosts "The House of Hip Hop" in the Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.  This can't miss performance is an invitational concert featuring dances from local dance companies, other HISD schools, and of course Inertia. Tickets are now on sale, they are $5 in advance and $10 at the door. See you there! 

On Thursday, December 5, the Practicum in Business Management & Genesys Works interns will gather in the Mini Theater at 8 a.m. to answer the big question: What is Practicum in Business Management? 

Students in grades 9-11 are invited to attend. They will receive important information about the program and taking the next steps to take to prepare for participation in the program. Current interns will be on hand to discuss how the program has impacted and changed their lives for the better!

The Practicum in Business Management program currently works with these corporate partners: ExxonMobil, Genesys Works, Parkway Insurance Group, Shell, and The Church Without Walls.

Genesys Works is a program designed to offer high school students the technical and professional skills training to succeed in the corporate world. Genesys Works also helps students prepare college applications and apply to scholarships during their senior year.

If students or parents have questions about the program, please contact Lauren Garcia at lsmith21@houstonisd.org or stop by L203.

Our cadets kicked off off Veteran's Day Weekend by hitting up an Eagle's Trace Retirement Community celebration along with West Briar Middle School. Both organizations were extremely pleased and honored  having our cadets being a part of their ceremony.  


Monday, the cadets marched in the Veteran's Day parade with another group of cadets supporting Shell Oil's tribute to Veterans.  Below are some photos from the parade.






In our society, we are often bombarded with the dangers of social media. While it is very important for us to be aware of what is going on in the mysterious online world, it is also important to highlight the benefits of social media. 

Teens use social media to stay connected with their friends and family, share photos, play games, blog, do homework, and promote causes they are passionate about. Teens can use social media to enhance their creativity by sharing musical and artistic projects, expand their ideas by creating blogs, videos, and podcasts, can raise money for charity, and teens can even collaborate with other students on class projects outside of school through social media.

What is the lesson here? Social media isn't all bad. But as parents, it is your right and duty to become as informed as you can on what is going on in social media. Make sure you know how your kids are using it, how to set limits and boundaries concerning their use and make sure you are always openly communicating with your teen. By building an atmosphere of trust and understanding about what your teen is experiencing in the social media world, it is more likely that he or she will come to you if something disturbing happens to them.
