For two hours, seniors and varsity cheerleader Abigail Wheeler works on painting a poster for the homecoming football game entrance. The poster read ‘grab some popcorn: we’re about to put on a show’ and included all of the starting offense and defense players’ names. “My favorite part of cheering for the homecoming game was the student section,” Wheeler said. “Everyone comes to that game, so it’s even bigger than it usually is and everyone is super excited no matter if we win or lose, but hopefully we beat Lafayette.”

Practicing child care, sophomore Ava Sticht feeds an electronic baby in Child Development class. Students practiced swaddling, feeding, burping, rocking and buckling the babies into car seats. “Everything was going good until the baby just randomly screamed at me. Normally they scream if you don’t support their head, but I was, so it took me by surprise,” Sticht said.
“I really loved kids and can’t wait to take the baby home for the weekend.”

During the 54th annual graduation commencement ceremony at St. Charles Family Arena, principal Jeremy Mitchell applauds cum laude students academic achievement. Mitchell has been the principal at West High for the past 12 years and plans to retire after the 21-22 school year ends. “Kids are good. I get irritated by news reports and friends [who say,] ‘Oh, I couldn’t do it, how do you put up with those high schoolers?’ Are you kidding me? I mean, you guys are great. Anytime I doubt that something happens, and boom. So I think thats the lesson that has been verified and reinforced year after year,” Mitchell said. “Its fun because I have my own children, and when Im with those kids, its kind of the same thing. I just think the teenage years are really interesting. Thats why I work here. I’ve been going to school since 1978, and its just so fun to see the growth in students. So I think my life lesson is learned from that enjoyment.”
