Westwood News


Our Pennies for Patients Fundraiser has come to an end and the results have been tallied!  Westwood Elementary has done an incredible job of collecting coins to help children and adults fight blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma.  We even surpassed our goal of $2,000 and raised a total of ………$2,910.61  !!!!

All the classrooms worked very hard to find and bring in spare change.  We had six classrooms that brought in between $100 and $199.  They were A4, A5, A6, C3, D5, and B1.  Then, there were two classrooms that brought in between $200 and $299:  A1 and C6.  Finally, there were three classrooms that brought in $300 or more!  Here are the top three classrooms:

Third place - winner of Otter pops with $352, Ms. Johnston’s (E-4)

Second place – winner of ice cream sandwiches with $373, Ms. Busker’s (A-2)

FIRST PLACE           -winner of a pizza party with $620, Mrs. Starick’s (C-2)

Congratulations to these classrooms!!!!

Everyone has done such an amazing job of helping others in our community who are affected by these diseases.  Thank you, Westwood!  Go WILDCATS!
