    OPEN CALL FOR ARTWORK! Students, Staff & West Stakeholders Welcome - Gallery West is open again in the Atrium, and we would love to show your best artwork. No, you don't need to be enrolled in an art class to participate. EVERY WILDCAT IS WELCOME! To submit your work, please visit the Virtual Gallery page on the Gallery West Website and complete the google form. On that page, you will also find a document and video to help guide you through digitally documenting your artwork. Accepted work will be viewable in Gallery West and on the Gallery's website.

    The IMC will still be open during remote learning for library book and supply pickup. Continue to reserve your books through the online catalog or use Bookhub to "order" the kind of books you like. Mrs. Hafermann will do the "book shopping" for you based on the information you provide. Instructions for both are provided here.    

    A group of students at Normal West needs student and teacher volunteers to take a two-week-long, anonymous survey about their mental health. The results will help create an app targeted to your health needs. If you'd like to apply or need more information, email Tucker Nance at 369915396@myunit5.org.

They receive professional certification from Stanford D School, Google, and Disney!  Also, by visiting unique area businesses daily and working with their innovative owners.

Ultimately, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your startup ideas to a panel of entrepreneurs & investors.
