WESTSIDE WELDING, FABRICATION AND MANUFACTURING LAB OFFICIALLY OPEN

On Oct. 3, 2019, Westside High School was in the national spotlight. With industry publications across the country watching, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts (’82) stood in front of the new Westside Welding, Fabrication and Manufacturing Lab and declared October Manufacturing Month across the state. 

“Industries nationwide are in dire need of qualified, talented trades workers,” said Tyler Owen (’90) of Owen Industries. Owen was one of 44 supporters, many of them connected to Westside in one way or another, who invested in the $1.2 million facility that offers state-of the-art equipment and training for students interested in vocational education. “This facility will provide top instruction and opportunity for our future workforce,” said Owen. “We are investing in a new generation of engineers, welders and industry experts who we hope join our Nebraska- and Iowa-based companies and economy.”

“It’s important for students, parents and teachers to understand the benefit technical education provides and have the opportunity to explore potential careers with hands-on experience prior to graduating high school,” said Scott Moore, Union Pacific’s senior vice president-corporate relations, chief administrative officer and Union Pacific Foundation president. 

The Westside High School Welding, Fabrication and Manufacturing Lab provides 2,500 square feet of space devoted to trades instruction. Students also have access to mentorships, apprenticeships and handson experience through strategic partnerships with local companies, many of which were represented at the steel-cutting ceremony to tour the lab. The facility has since been featured by both Omaha Public Power District and Union Pacific’s corporate publications and national trade publications The Fabricator and SS Journal. 

“My hope is that the Omaha business community can hold Westside up as a model school example for what others should be doing for workforce development,” said another project donor.

“This facility will provide top instruction and opportunity for our future workforce.”

2019 PROJECTS AND PROGRAMS

NEW HIGH SCHOOL ENTRANCE AND WELCOME CENTER

Westside High School is excited to announce a new secure entrance and welcome center will be open in spring 2020. This will enable the high school to provide the same level of access control as other schools in the district and city. Additionally, this space will provide a single entry point serving as a welcome center for visitors looking to learn more about the district and/or the high school. This project would not have been possible without the guidance and support of one of our own alums, Robert B. Sturm (’77). Please be on the lookout for the dedication ceremony in spring. We are truly excited to announce that the new space will be named the Robert B. Sturm (Class of 1977) Entrance and Welcome Center.

WESTSIDE GOLF TRAINING CENTER

The Westside Golf Training Center is a project that has been in discussion for months, and it was realized that an unused space at the school could be absolutely perfect for its installation. This project will be the first of its kind in Nebraska (and the Midwest) with dedicated space for a golf simulator and a chipping and putting area. Additionally, growing the game of golf has always been a priority within the golf industry, and now Westside will be doing its part with kids across our district. Most important, this project will enable Westside to showcase our great history of girls and boys golf. What better way to highlight former players, coaches and the programs’ successes than with photos, quotes, stories and the Warrior brand throughout the space. The project is off to a great start with over $80,000 committed toward the project.

WARRIOR ENTERPRISE FUND

The Warrior Enterprise Fund is a first-of-its-kind seed fund aimed at helping Westside High School students turn their business ideas into sustainable startups. The School of Entrepreneurial Thinking has been in existence for two years and the program has been instrumental in establishing a curriculum that helps students take an idea on paper to reality, usually over the course of a school year. Moving the idea from paper to existence requires students to have access to seed capital in addition to mentorship. The Westside Foundation is excited to partner with local businesses and alumni on this program by establishing the Warrior Enterprise Fund with a goal of raising $100,000 of seed capital. In addition to funding support, the program is also looking for mentors willing to work with students on all facets of their business ventures (strategic planning, finance, investment, operations, marketing, etc.).

If interested in learning more about these projects or other initiatives supporting students and teachers, please contact us at 402-390-2133/westside.foundation@westside66.net

WESTSIDE FOUNDATION

gratitude from Superintendent Mike Lucas for the Foundation and what they do for us:

Simply put, the Westside Foundation is amazing. The support they provide Westside Community Schools makes a difference every single day. We are so fortunate to be part of an organization that values all children and the growing needs of an urban school district like District 66.

The Westside Foundation is a tremendous partner that allows us to continue to push to become better and better. Our students need us more than ever. Westside Community Schools was founded in 1947 on the principles of innovation, community and excellence. A lot has changed in the decades since but our commitment to these founding pillars will never wane. We will always be proud of our rich history and the traditions, support and people that have made, and continue to make, Westside such a special place. Together, with the Foundation, we can ensure our future is bright for decades to come!

CLASSROOM AND INNOVATION GRANTS

GRANT FOR WIRELESS MICROPHONES

Disney Kids musical productions have been alive at Loveland Elementary School since 2016. Disney Kids is a free program offered to a limited number of schools each year. Loveland has since created a musical theater program that combines all the art forms and provides an engaging opportunity for young students to work onstage or behind the scenes. The theater program has helped foster creativity, collaboration, communication, problem-solving, empathy and much more.

The Westside Foundation helped support our theater program by purchasing wireless microphones for the productions. The microphones have allowed our performances to soar to the next level, with audience members able to hear all the students during the productions. The microphones also have helped our backstage crew with creating the best sound production possible.

The productions have brought out many impressive talents and have showcased the students’ willingness to dive in and collaborate toward a shared vision.

WESTGATE GATORS BUILDING HOME LIBRARIES WITH BOOK TRUST

Teachers know that to create a love of reading requires student choice and ownership in their reading selections. Book Trust is a program designed to help low-income communities do just that! Through a grant from the United Way, and support from the Westside Foundation, Westgate kindergartners through third-grade students select $7 worth of books monthly through Scholastic. These books are then taken home to enjoy with the youth’s family and create long-lasting libraries at home. Research has shown that children are more likely to read books that they choose, and having text at home is impactful in building healthy reading habits. Third-grader Sarah Mejia-Trinidad, who is in her fourth year of the program, said “Book Trust helps me read and find books at my level. I like picking my own books that are interesting to me. My baby brother uses my old kindergarten books and I help him read them.” Book Trust has had a tremendous impact on current and future Westgate Gators!

GARDEN CLUB

Through grants and donations, the Garden Club continues to offer elementary students a variety of experiences in gardening, cooking, caring for the environment and making wise nutritional choices. Garden Club meetings involve cooking or food preparation. The club makes snacks and entrees using vegetables from the school garden. The Westside Foundation grant allows for the purchase of planting and craft supplies and groceries. A favorite club activity is choosing from a large selection of herbs and spices, many of which participants have never seen before, to make their own healthy dips and hummus.

During harvest time, the club uses vegetables from the garden as well as vegetables students bring in. In winter, the club uses the garden’s harvested, blanched and frozen tomatoes. When the supply is depleted, vegetables are purchased.

This innovation grant helped purchase last year’s seeds and plants. It also funded vegetable replanting after the hail wiped out the garden! This grant, combined with others, has allowed the club to maintain the garden.

PUMPKIN PATCH AT WESTGATE

April Hoffman’s and Stacy Schnauber’s kindergartners got their own personal pumpkin patch experience right in the garden of Westgate! A Westside Foundation grant funded the purchase of pumpkins for both classes and offered a unique hands-on experience for students. The kids learned about cultivation and life cycle of a pumpkin, from seed to fruit. After picking their pumpkins, students had the opportunity to paint them. The special event also was used for a personal narrative assignment to strengthen writing skills. Students have reflected on this being one of their favorite memories from the year!

WESTSIDE OUTDOOR EDUCATION PROGRAM

The Westside outdoor education program is a two-day, one-evening program. The objectives of the program are to develop educational, social, cultural and recreational experiences for our learners at the sixth- grade level. During the outdoor education experience, students have an opportunity to develop an awareness of conserving our natural resources, experience scientific understandings and recognize that all things in nature constantly change. The outdoor education experience allows our students to develop relationships between student peers, counselors and educators while experiencing aspects of nature in a setting at Platte River State Park, just west of Louisville, Nebraska.

During this unique experience, students spend an hour at each of nine instructional areas in the span of two days. Students are divided into instructional groups where they experience owl pellet dissection, team building, nature hike/ecology/global positioning, fishing, canoeing, tower study, archery and horsemanship. Certified teaching staff and student counselors from Westside High School oversee cabin responsibilities during the overnight stay at the park. Overnight security and shuttle bus transportation at the park are hired by the district for the safety of students and counselors. On behalf of all students and staff, we appreciate the funding from the Westside Foundation. Without your support, this wonderful student learning experience would not be possible.

The W Club was created in 2016 to help support the K-12 students and teachers of District 66 by providing funding for programs that further excellence and enhance collaboration. In just four short years, over $320,000 has been invested through the W Club! Thanks to all for their past support.

We are excited to announce that the following areas will be supported by the 2019 W Club funds: high school expansion project, academic scholarships, kids in poverty, nutrition, technology, athletics, health exercise, District 66 culture, STEAM education, student recognition and career exploration. A full recap of the W Club projects are highlighted on our website (www.wcsfoundation66.org) and in the 2020 W Club brochure that you will be receiving in June.

Please note, the W Club Campaign kicks off in May and you will be receiving membership in the mail then. You will have the opportunity to join the W Club campaign through December 2020. If you wish to join the W Club today, please contact 402-390-2133 or use the donation form found in this annual report.

LEAVE A LEGACY BY MAKING A PLANNED GIFT

Alumni District 66 residents and friends have supported Westside Community Schools through their estate. Please contact us at 402-390-2133 to learn more about options for making a planned gift.

VI-VI RECAP

Over 500 guests attended VI-VI 2019 ready to “Believe in the Magic”! The record-breaking crowd gathered at the CHI Health Center in downtown Omaha on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019, and helped to raise over $273,000 for Westside students and teachers.

VI-VI’s cocktail hour featured a silent auction packed with fabulous items. Magician Ryan Chandler entertained guests prior to the delicious dinner of grilled beef fillet, chicken breast with pesto cream, vegetable medley with roasted potatoes and caramel apple cheesecake and red velvet cake for dessert. A spirited live auction was the highlight of the evening with Westside alum Andy Liakos (’94) serving as emcee and auctioneer.

The proceeds from the event support student success through annual grants and collaborative initiatives at Westside schools.

Joy and Gordon Watanabe were the honorary chairs of VI-VI 2019, and the chairs were sisters and alumni Kelly (Schnauber ’94) and Kevin Buscher, Kim (Schnauber ’97) and Matt Pape and Stacey Schnauber (’98).

A Record $273,000 Rasied!

PACIFIC HEIGHTS EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER

On Sept. 4, 2019, the Westside Early Childhood Centers opened their ninth early childhood center. The new center is called Pacific Heights and is in the lower level of the Coram Deo Church at 8787 Pacific St. Kaycee Meister is the Pacific Heights site director. There are currently 40 children enrolled. This center provides programming for children 3 to 5 years old. One unique feature of Pacific Heights is the proximity to Westside High School. As this center grows and establishes itself in the community, our goal is to develop a working relationship with the high school. We have already worked together to provide high school students opportunities to come and volunteer in the center. Our hope is to continue to foster this relationship. This year Pacific Heights worked with families to collect donations and delivered “Sunshine Baskets” to local businesses. Pacific Heights is excited to see what next year will bring!

Student in a large group practicing Second Step listening skills during story time

Paws for Friendship therapy dog Tess visits our learners once a month to listen to them read; she helps boost their confidence and supports their love for reading

WHS students created stations and played games with learners to assess different skills
