The Westwood Girls Basketball Team is participating in the Iowa Hall of Pride Scrimmage on Friday, November 17th vs. Sioux City East at Sloan. The Junior Varsity team will play @ 6:00 and Varsity team will play @ 7:00. In order for the Iowa Hall of Pride scrimmage to occur each school must select a service project that is meaningful for their students and community. The Westwood Girls Basketball Team chose to participate in the Goodwill Shoe and Mitten Party on December 2nd. During their volunteer hours more than 1000 children ages five through eleven in the Sioux City area will receive shoes, socks, hats and mittens. After the $250 contribution from Friday night's gate to the Richard Jacobson Education Fund at the Iowa Hall of Pride, the remaining proceeds from the Pride Scrimmage will go to the Goodwill Industries to support the Shoe and Mitten Party. Please join and support the Westwood Girls Basketball Team this Friday vs. Sioux City East for a great cause!

For over 30 years, the Siouxland Composite Unit has partnered with students and teachers from many of our Siouxland schools. If you are not familiar with CAP, we have an excellent webpage highlighting who we are. To save you some time, I have included a brief synopsis of two of our programs at the end of this email: aerospace education and cadet programs. CAP uses these and other programs to fulfill its three-fold mission:
to assist in local, state and national disaster relief and emergency services,
to educate citizens about US aerospace initiatives, and
to develop future leaders through our cadet program.
