During the week of December 5th-9th, students at Westside participated in their first ever 'CAN you Food Fight?' to collect food items for Community in Action. In place of the Penny Wars which has been the fundraiser for the last several years, the student council decided to have students bring food instead of pennies. Each food item students brought in counted as a point for their classroom, however, certain foods could be brought in to 'bomb' other classes and take away their points. The bombing items included tuna fish, chili, Mac n' Cheese, and peanut butter which are all items that the food bank is in need of. Items that could be brought for points included anything from canned soups to canned fruit, beans and rice. The goal was to reach 2000 items of food which was surpassed after the second day. The final count will be announced at an assembly just prior to Christmas break. Whichever classroom receives the most points, will earn a donut party. Grade-level winners will also receive a prize.
