In December, the Westside Elementary student council members, along with Principal Sara Matis, presented a check for over $3,000.00 to Dave Smith with Community in Action. During an entire week, student council members counted pennies and change that students brought for the annual Penny Wars. This money will go toward feeding families in need in the area. This is the second year in a row that Westside students raised over $3,000.00. The Penny Wars have become a worthwhile tradition at Westside. Congratulations for empowering others and “Being the Magic”.
