This semester, seniors have two options to fundraise for after prom expenses. 
Option A is to sell Dave and Buster's Power Cards that are $20.00 each. At after prom each senior receives a $5.00 power card for games, however they cannot purchase more time at after prom. These additional cards can be used at any Dave and Busters at any time. 
Option B is to sell 32 oz. tumbler cups with lids. There are many options of different cups including college logos, sports teams, and Westside High School. Students will receive these order forms this week and every cup is $12.00 cash or checks payable to WHS PTO. 
If students want extra arcade time or have tumbler cups to order, all purchase, orders and payments must be placed Thursday, March 13, or Friday, March 14, in the Commons at lunch with cash or checks payable to WHS PTO. 

Contact Ms. Kaylin Brett at kbrett@houstonisd.org with any questions or concerns.

Hosting a foreign exchange student is just like having your own child attend Westside. These students have become a part of the fabric of Westside through participation in academics, athletics, and clubs/organizations. The friendships they have developed have further enrich their stay in the United States.  Everybody involved will tell you that it is truly the experience of a lifetime, for both the host families and exchange students.  


If you are interested in hosting, or have questions about hosting, an exchange student for the 2014-2015 school year, please contact Erik Ostergren at eostergr@houstonisd.org or call 281-920-8075.


This year, Westside is fortunate to have eight wonderful exchange students. We have three students who hail from Germany; the remaining students come from an eclectic mixture of countries: Belgium, Romania, Austria, China and Canada.


The Westside facebook page is better than ever!  Drop by and catch up on events through pictures and posts.

Lawrence Garvin is a 4 year Business Professionals of America member and 2013-2014 chapter president. Lawrence placed 3rd in Medical Office Procedures at state this past weekend. He will represent Texas at the National Leadership Conference May 1-3 in Indianapolis. After graduation, Lawrence will pursue a degree in Nursing. 

Last fall, many individuals, families, and businesses supported Westside's students through the Support Westside Success Campaign. Financial donations were made to help Westside's PTO support students through our PTO's programs such as homecoming and spirit activities, landscaping, teacher appreciation, scholarships, and many more. We truly appreciate everyone's help in supporting our Wolves. If you were not able to contribute in the fall and would like to be a part of the Support Westside Success campaign, please go to the PTO website to access a form.

"Cyber bullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed, or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen, or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies, or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. When it is between two adults, it is called cyber-harassment or cyber stalking.   


Did you know? More than one third of U.S. teens surveyed said that they had been cyber bullied or knew someone that had been cyber bullied. Cell phones, email connections, and Internet social networking sites have given bullies more means and opportunity to target others. The effects of cyber bullying can lead to low self-esteem and other negative emotional responses. Victims of cyber bullying may feel scared, frustrated, humiliated, angry, and even depressed. There have been several reported cases in which cyber bullying has led to suicide. Victims and perpetrators of cyber bullying are twice as likely to be girls, and over half of all cyber bullying is not ever reported to an adult. Victims may become isolated, withdrawn, become jumpy or nervous when receiving text or instant messages, or stop going to school. Perpetrators may have multiple on-line accounts with different screen names or hack into accounts that aren't theirs. 

And don't forget about the three-part bullying seminar called the "Upstander Project" going on in March. The last two meetings will be on March 13 and the 27, from 8:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m. before late start Thursday, held in the mini theater. There will be snacks, great discussion, and if your teen attends all three sessions, they will be in the running to win a gift card. For more info, click here.
