The Westphalia Junior High Student Council would like to thank the Westphalia community for collecting and donating food items to our food drive. We collected 943 pounds of food. The food was donated to Food for Families in Marlin and the Rosebud Food Pantry. This was a great way to help other families in need this holiday season.

Volleyball Tournament

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Words cannot express how thankful I am to everyone who helped make our first Westphalia Volleyball tournament a success. Special thanks to the PTO for managing the concession stand and the hospitality room. Parents…we couldn’t have held the tournament without your help and support! Thank you for providing food for the hospitality room, working in the concession stand, and helping to clean up after the tournament was over. Most of all, thank you for your continuous support throughout the season. Thanks to all of the Westphalia staff members and students who helped before, during, and after the tournament. I am blessed to work with you and am grateful for your willingness to help.

A special thanks to Gaby Hernandez, Eva Hernandez, Donna Schoenemann, Emily Thornton, Tyler Kallus, Deann Meyer, Elizabeth Puente, Mark Vaught, and Jamie Ashford for your help with the books, scoreboard, and gate. Gaby and Donna….thank you for the countless hours you have spent keeping books for the Lady Bluejays. I truly appreciate all of your help, not only at the tournament, but also throughout our volleyball season.

To the Westphalia Lady Bluejays Volleyball Teams….I am so proud of you!! Thank you for the great season and for continuing to challenge yourselves each and every day!

Thanks again for everything!!
