Dear West High Families:
I can’t believe where the year has gone. We are cruising right towards Prom in March and then Spring Break shortly after that, and then we will be at graduation before we know it. Graduation will be Saturday, May 30th in the stadium at 9 am this year. I was thinking about the many activities and athletic events we have witnessed this year, and it has been a great year. In case you haven’t heard we have the number one female wrestler in the state, Iman Kazem. She is amazing. Spring Sports will begin on February 9th next week. Athletics is holding an Athletic Night on April 20th, where incoming freshman or returning students get the chance to meet coaches from all the sports. We also have a lot going on in the next month outside of the athletic arena and I wanted to share a few of those activities.
The academic decathlon team is competing this coming weekend in Lathrop. They participate in the super quiz on Saturday and that is a lot of fun to watch.
The Mock Trial team competes in the middle of February as well. The format has changed and is spread out over two weeks. I saw them scrimmage last week and they did a good job and are working hard for the real competition in Stockton.
Science Olympiad took third place at Tracy High school recently. This was a warm up for the big show at UOP on March 7th.
The amazing Robotics team put on a tournament last weekend, and hosted 69 teams altogether. One of our West High teams is also competing in San Jose on March 7th in the hope of a state run. So there is a lot of exiting events going on in the upcoming months. We hope to see as many of you as we can at the athletic and academic events.
Thanks for all your support.
