There will be an All Night Graduation Party organizational meeting on Wednesday, October 18th at 6pm in the media center for parents of any Westwood High School student.  This meeting is not just for parents of seniors.  The party preparation is shared by the parents of the underclassmen students because it is such a busy time for the parents of the graduates.  Many hands make light work and every hand really does help!  Mark your calendar, invite a friend and bring your ideas.  If you need more information please feel free to contact Melissa Tobias at 396-5047 or email her at
