WESTFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — This morning, our ABC40 Honor Roll went live on the road for the very first time. This week’s ABC40′s Brittany Decker joined students and faculty in a celebration to showcase all that is going on at Westfield High School.
Bright and early, 5:00 a.m. Friday, we kicked off the party outside the entrance of the school.
Cookies and hot chocolate were up for grabs…breakfast for everyone! The school mascot was on site and students began rolled out of bed early to join in the action.
“Bomber pride day: a day in which students dress up in our colors, red and black, and we get behind our sports teams, clubs, and our activities,” says Principal Jonathan Carter.
In attendance were also the marching band and cheerleaders, as well as the gymnastics, field hockey, and football teams. Also, there were class officer representatives, Key Club, Student Council, and Honor Society members.
“We raised money, so we could buy backpacks to fill them for student who don’t have what they need for school,” says Key Club member Julianne Kordanna.
They not only have spirit, but also the brains.
“We’ve had a science fair where we’ve had approximately 500 of our students participate each year,” explains Science Teacher, Donna McKay.
And they have the desire to bring home bragging rights. The gymnastics team has been undefeated for 6 years, record 87-0. They practice three hours every single day!
Friday night, they will all be cheering on their football team. Their record is 7-0 and the winner of tonight’s game against Central high School is the Conference champion this year.
The Westfield High School family has set the bar high for our first Honor Roll LIVE.
Our next ABC40 Honor Roll LIVE will be next Friday, in Agawam.
