November‌ ‌‌1‌5th‌ ‌through‌ ‌the‌ ‌‌23rd‌ ‌students and faculty participated in ‌Spirit‌ ‌Week‌ ‌at ‌WSHS.‌ ‌It‌ ‌was‌ ‌filled‌ ‌with‌ ‌many‌‌ crazy‌ ‌costumes, outfits‌ ‌, and‌ ‌lots‌ ‌of‌ ‌fun.‌ ‌With‌ ‌each‌ ‌day‌ ‌bringing‌ ‌about‌ ‌a‌ ‌new‌ ‌theme‌ ‌to‌ ‌tackle, many‌ ‌people‌ ‌showed‌ ‌school‌ ‌spirit‌ ‌and‌ ‌dressed‌ ‌up.‌ This year featured some new and fun themes including bring anything but a backpack day, celebrity day, and decades day. The week concluded with West Side day on the day of the pep rally. This year’s pep rally games included a relay race followed by tic-tac-toe and then tug-o-war. ‌In between the games, we had cheers from our cheerleaders as well as a ‘dance’ routine by the seniors on the football team. And then the day itself, Thanksgiving. We won the long-awaited game against Agawam 40 – 19.
