The WMS National Junior Honors Society is collecting money to help a Westside family in need. From December 10th through December 17th, NJHS members are collecting money from students and staff in quite a unique way. Jars labeled with teachers names will be in the PAC hallway every morning so that students can drop change and/or cash in the cup of their choice. The top five winning teachers will be "rewarded" with a face full of pie on Friday, December 19th.  Pictures to come.
