WHS has a great administration, wonderful teachers, a vigorous academic plan with AP courses required, and an incredible student body. Let’s give them the campus they deserve and that we voted for in 2012. There are ways you can support the school today.
Here is what the principal has to say: “Westbury is an AWSOME place. The students are awesome and so are the parents. We are making progress every single day. We had our first back to school bash, winter festival, cross country event that was out of this world, a big event for middle school track coming in February, and our fine art programs that continue to flourish every time they step onto the stage. Auto-tech and debate are considered to be among the best in the district and respected around the State of Texas. Our scholars just need a chance to shine, have pride in themselves, and understand they are important to us.”
The February Crier devotes 5 pages to WHS. See how you can join the effort to support WHS. https://docs.google.com/a/westburycrier.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=d2VzdGJ1cnljcmllci5jb218Y2l2aWNjbHVifGd4OjEzN2QxMWRkYTllYzM2NGI
Immediate need for VIPS (see page 8). It’s easy, sign up online and then go to the school with your TDL to finish registering.
Tell HISD that You Want Westbury High School to Become a School of Choice and that You support Campus Expansion
Check out the Hot Topics tab for more information!
The HISD Board of Trustees, during closed session next week on November 13, will be discussing the bond scope for Westbury High School - specifically the fate of a campus expansion for WHS that HISD has already begun and had promised to continue as part of the 2012 Bond Program (land acquisition). The fate of the WHS campus expansion is at serious risk.
1. An online petition has been prepared to show support for WHS to become a School of Choice and to support Campus Expansion. We hope that you will sign it as an endorsement of support AND also help us spread the petition link as fast as possible. Here is the link to the petition: http://goo.gl/UX7nyo
Westbury, what do YOU think? https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/westbury2014 The Westbury Civic Club annual meeting will be held September 17, 2014 and we'd like to hear what you think about Metro, garbage fees, the civic club and plans for new development.

Happy New Year! The January Crier is being delivered and the website version is posted. After the December holiday interlude, meetings are back on the calendar. The fund raising for the community garden property is in full swing and we thank all who have donated bringing our total to over $40,000 raised.
We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! December 3rd is Giving Tuesday and we have partnered with Network for Good to fundraise to Save the 7 acre Westbury Community Garden.
We want to raise at least $50,000 by December 31 to help us buy our leased 7-acre Westbury Community Garden site. If we don’t buy the land, then it will be paved over by the owner for an apartment complex.
Our goal is to rescue this award-winning garden to keep it public and green. We ask for your help. We need money AND we need to spread the word about our effort. Total cost of the land is more than $500,000.
The December Crier will be delivered on the 7th and the online version will be available December 3, 2013.
Please donate today. Donations are tax-deductible.
