To create a sense of community within our school, assemblies are scheduled where we gather together as a school and family to showcase all the cool things going on around campus and all the personal achievements being made. Many students participate on sports teams here at West Hills. To honor them for all their hard work, part of the assembly is set aside to cheer on our athletes. Showing appreciation and respect to our fellow students and peers helps them feel good about their work. An athlete, Alexis Barkley, shares that her favorite part of being in the school assembly is “being able to represent my sport and being there with my team.” Being able to gather together in a fun environment where we can support each other is a positive impact here at school.
