Students from across the district attended Student Council’s annual Fall Carnival on September 2.

On Friday, September 2, students, parents, and staff from all over the Westside district were invited to attend the annual Fall Carnival held by student council.

Sarah Kleinsasser, a student council co-sponsor and math teacher at Westside, said her favorite part of the event was seeing the community come together. 

“The main reason we have the fall carnival is to bring the community together and celebrate our first home football game,” Kleinsasser said. “I just love seeing all the people that come and have fun. I think being able to see the teachers in the dunk tank is so funny and students have so much fun with it.”

Many students from various schools across the district came to the carnival, including Elias Gutierrez Tapia, a 7th grader at the middle school.

 “I really like the dunk tank because it’s funny to see the teachers fall in,” Tapia said.

In addition to Student Council, many other clubs hosted activities at the event. Student Council had a game of inflatable twister, a dunk tank, velcro wall, and pedestal jousting, and the French club gave out candy. 

According to Kleinsasser, the carnival was a great way to get the community together to kick off the school year.
