During the 2018 Charity Week, students and staff alike participated in spirit days, and other activities raising funds for student senate to donate. Charity Week was run by Student Senate and all proceeds went to the Falcon Nest and various programs here at West.

“The Student Senate chose to give the proceeds to the Falcon Nest. They feel close ties to the Falcon Nest,” Student Senate adviser and English teacher David Kintigh said.

Spirit days consisted of Fashion Disaster day, Vacation Day, Workout Wednesday, Disney Day, and Blue Out Day. Students were also able to participate in various activities such as the Freddie Falcon pageant, student v. staff basketball game, variety show, and scavenger hunt. These events had great turnouts and successful tickets sales.

“It was a lot of hard work, but I think it was a great turnout. I had a lot of bumps in the road when it came to finding people to play but it was worth it in the end,” student senate member Emily Brooks said about the student v. staff basketball game she planned.

Overall the 2018 charity week raised over $3,500 not including the BOGO (Buy one give one) reusable grocery bags they are selling.

“With the goals we set out to do for the various groups I would say we’re successful. We are also purchasing things off of the wishlist the Nest has,” Kintigh said.
