WestFest: September 19 & 20

WestFest: A Carnival of Community

Posted on September 18, 2014

Show your WestFest spirit!

Don’t forget to wear your new WestFest t-shirt at Spirit Day tomorrow (who wouldn’t want to wear an awesome new WF shirt, instead of the ‘ole school uniform?)! If you have been procrastinating—all is not lost! Your child can sport the cool & festive logo along with their fellow classmates; we still have a few child & adult shirts in stock. They will be on sale in the school hall after school today—so stop by and get yours before they are all gone!

Uninterrupted Fun at WF

We are pleased to offer a secure ATM onsite this year, to be located right outside the Teachers’ Lounge! This is generously donated by the West Seattle Veterans Center, a local 501 C3. Now you don’t have to run home or to the bank to keep the WestFest fun rolling! More food, bingo, games, rides, candy, beer…whatever you want can be at your fingertips!

Final Reminders For Volunteers

Encourage your junior high student to show off their school pride AND earn service hours by signing up for a shift or two! We need their help to fully staff and run the event. Help us keep the valued tradition of WestFest a success! Sign them up here!

Please show up on time, stay for your entire shift, be respectful, and smile! You are representing Holy Rosary to our community! Let’s make this a Carnival to remember! If something last minute comes up, please make sure you have a spouse or a friend fill in for you. It’s up to you to make sure your shift is covered. THANK YOU!!!

It’s not too late to volunteer at WestFest!! A parent volunteer is needed to manage breakdown on Sunday morning 8am to noon. Volunteers are already signed up to do the work but we need one person to oversee it all. If you’re interested, please .

Cake Walk

Time to start planning which confections you will bring for our eager cake walkers! Bake your own or pick one up at the store on your way to WestFest. Just make it tasty! Be creative with your cakes, cookies, brownies, krispy treats, cupcakes, or whatever you come up with! You can submit up to 4 fundraising hours each school year for baking. Covered items can be brought to the school hall Friday afternoon, Sept. 19th, or Saturday morning, Sept. 20th. .

Book Sale

The books have rolled in, so please do come by and browse the sale! There’s no need to wait, but if you can hold off until (4p-6p) on Saturday, you can “Fill A Bag For $1 Or A Donation” during the last 2 hours of the sale. Come and see the selection and restock your library!

Raffle Tickets

We are offering three exciting baskets of prizes (including a Kindle Fire and case, Starbucks goodies, and much, much more!). Tickets will be $1 each, and will be on sale at the Back to School Night on 9/10, at the Pancake Breakfast on 9/14, as well as during WestFest in the gym & by our FABULOUS roving sales people. You can purchase many tickets for your favorite basket, or spread them out for a chance to win all 3! The drawing will be at 8pm at the main stage at WestFest. You need not be present to win but it’s much more fun if you are!

Two Great Ways To Play On The Westfest Stage!
