Reminder - No School this Friday!

Scouting for Food

Great job to Clark's Pack 305 and their siblings in braving the frigid temperatures Saturday to deliver Scouting for Food bags. Everyone reading this should have gotten a blue bag. Please fill it with non-perishable food items and put it out on your front porch before 9 a.m. Saturday, November 20th. The same Cub Scouts will return to collect your donation. If you have not received a Scouting for Food bag and would like one, please text John Murphy at three-one-four seven-zero-seven zero-zero-seven-three. Thank you - John Murphy.

Art Room Needs Envelopes

Mrs. Boyer would love your Amazon envelopes! These are great for wrapping clay projects in so the items make it home safely. Any sizes are great! Thank you!

WGSD Turkey Day Football Game


The annual Turkey Day football game returns this year after being cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year's game will be played at Kirkwood High School starting at noon on Thanksgiving Day.

Click here to be directed to the WGHS athletic website for information about this year's Turkey Day game https://wghs.rschoolteams.com/page/hot_news/view/128. In addition to getting tickets for the game at WGHS, they are now also available online https://www.kirkwoodschools.org/khsathletics.  Be sure to select "Webster Presale General Admission" tickets as all money from presale tickets goes to the school that sold them.

Tickets purchased in advance cost $7 each.  If you wait until the day of the game to purchase tickets they will cost $10 each and that money will be split between the two schools.

The community events on the night before Thanksgiving will also return this year.  The annual Chilifest sponsored by the WGHS Parents Club will be held in the Commons and Courtyard at WGHS from 5:00 - 7:00.  Click here for more information and tickets for the Chilifest: https://wghsparentsclub.org/products/chilifest-tickets
