Students and staff were encouraged to drop their loose change into an "Angel Bottle" that was placed throughout classrooms and other various spots in the building from November 4 - 15.  After 2 weeks of collecting, Westwood Elementary presented the monetary donation to Mrs. Lori Glace on behalf of the Christmas Angel Tree ministry sponsored by Main Street United Church.  The amount donated exceeded the school's goal of $500.00.  The Christmas Angel Tree ministry strives to provide blessings to those children who are less fortunate during the holiday season.  We are very proud of the Westwood Team for their generosity and thank Mr. David Whitmire who led this initiative for us.
