Beta Club Fundraisers

posted Jan 14, 2019, 8:28 AM by Jennifer Cox

Beta Club is sponsoring a series of fundraising events for St. Jude Research Hospital for Children. Over the next few weeks, we will be holding the St. Jude Math-a-thon. This is a great time to practice your math skills. Just get a St. Jude Funbook from you math teacher, get people to sponsor you, and do the math. You will be studying and helping sick children at the same time. What a great idea!

We will also be sponsoring some contests. During lunch, you will be able to participate in a Pie in the Face contest. You can vote for the teacher you wish to see get a pie in the face by placing a donation in their envelope. The "winning" teacher will be pied at the Pep Rally next Thursday.

Also during the Pep Rally, we will be holding a half court basketball contest. Participants will pay a dollar for a chance to shoot the basketball from half court. 
Come on Warriors! Let's see what you are made of!

At the Winter Semi-Formal Dance on January 25th, you will have the chance to have a special photo taken with your date, your friends, or even with a teacher for $2.00 per photo. Don't forget to smile!

On February 1st, we will be sponsoring a Balloon Raffle during all three lunches. Students can purchase a balloon for $1.00. At the appointed time, all students will pop their balloon to see if they have the winning ticket inside. 

Last, but not least, we will be sponsoring a Have a Heart contest the week of Valentine's Day to determine which grade level has the biggest heart. During lunch you may purchase a heart to add to your grade level's window and the grade level that has the most hearts covering the window will win the Spirit Stick. Right now, the 6th grade has the Spirit Stick, so this is a good time for 7th and 8th grade to step up to the plate and show their spirit.

All of these fundraisers will benefit the children of St. Jude Research Hospital. Let's go Warriors and show you care!

Join the West-Oak High School Athletic Booster Club!

posted Mar 14, 2018, 10:48 AM by Jennifer Cox   [ updated Nov 14, 2018, 5:39 AM ]

There is currently an effort underway to reinvigorate the West-Oak High School Athletic Booster Club (WOHS-ABC). Booster clubs exist for the purpose of supporting all who participate in the school’s athletic programs. We believe that membership in the booster club by parents and their subsequent participation in WOHS-ABC events, fundraisers and meetings is a crucial first step in developing a strong, vibrant and successful athletic program that is sustainable year after year.

Your membership will run through June 30 2019.

Please download the membership form and mail in today!  

Through this initial stage, we would like to see a strong show of support for our West-Oak Athletic Programs because we believe successful athletic programs not only benefit the athlete, but fosters student pride in their school and community.
