ANNOUNCEMENTS

Dear Classmates and Faculty,

How many of these “fun facts” do you know?

  • This month marks the 50th anniversary of the first graduating class of Westchester High School – the Class of 1968!
  • 50 years ago this past fall, Westchester High School opened its doors to the first four classes of 1968, 1969, 1970, and 1971, and a wonderful team of teachers and administrative staff members.
  • In 1970, just 3 years after the school’s opening, our fabulous marching band, under the direction of John Hammerle, and our award-winning drill team the Wranglerettes, under the direction of Anne Oaks, were asked to perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York!  (Check out the video of this trip on our alumni website under High School Pictures or by following this link:  (http://www.westchesterwildcats.com/class_custom8.cfm)

To honor the above 50th anniversary milestones and to possibly include other milestone reunion celebrations, such as the 45th for the WHS Class of ’73, the 40th for the WHS Class of ’78, the 35th for the WHS Class of ’83, and the 10th reunion for the WAIS Class of 2008, your alumni Board of Directors recommends that we have a much larger celebration than our usual all-alumni events!  To start with, we are calling it our "Westchester 50th Anniversary."  We are making preliminary arrangements to host the event on October 20th at a hotel venue.  Usually, membership dues collected throughout the year are used for our events for all alumni.  For an event like this, the fees we have collected will not begin to cover the cost.  To continue our tradition of not charging any fee for attending we are reaching out to you and asking that the cost of this special celebration be underwritten by those who can contribute so that everyone will have the opportunity to attend without an event fee.  At this time, the costs for our celebration are estimated to be as follows: 

  • Hotel Venue - $4,000 -  8,000 (depending on participation)
  • Band - $3,000
  • Decorations - $500
  • Printing - $500

If you feel as we do that this Westchester 50th Anniversary celebration should be treated with great significance and you can help underwrite the cost of the occasion, we must have your donation by June 1 so that we can finalize the commitments to secure the venue, band, etc.  The names of all who help underwrite this event will be included in our event program.  (If not enough funds are donated, we will return the donations we have received and make alternative plans.)  Donations can be made by check or by credit card.  To donate (whether it be $25, $50, $100, $500, $1,000 or more), please use the form that will be sent in a separate email to either mail a check or to call, fax, or email your credit card information.

 

Best regards,

WAA Board of Directors

"Through tall and stately arches
Comes a spirit we hold dear,
To guide us in our future
Whether we be far or near.
 We'll not forget the happy years
 With friends both loyal and true.
 So as we sing, let praises ring,
 Westchester, for you."

National Hsipanic Scholars Recognition

Seventeen SBISD students were named finalists in the annual National Hispanic Recognition program. These students, also known as National Hispanic Scholars, include

Westchester Academy for International Studies two finalists in this category Adam Kassir and Jabob Saenz.

To earn this highly regarded recognition, students must be at least one-quarter of Hispanic/Latino descent, attain a high performance level on the PSAT, and have a GPA of 3.0 or higher at the end of their junior year. About 5,000 students nationally earn this recognition.


Westchester is now authorized to offer International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme for Grades SIX through Twelve!!

Only 13 schools in the state of Texas offer both middle school and high school programs.

Many consider the IB curriculum the best curriculum in the world.

Shaun Wegscheid (a Westchester grad and now faculty member at Westchester) worked alongside many other Westchester staff members to bring this excellent opportunity to Westchester students.
