    Westmont Broadcasting is a podcasting club led by our very own Ben Padgitt.  Please listen to Ben's newest shows that include an interview with Mr. Chamberlain and Mr. Dunn.  Also, you won't want to miss the bonus video clips included in our "Latest Creations."

    Please let Ben know if you would like to join us in the studio as a guest on our show.  Westmont Broadcasting meets on Wednesdays after school, during PLC.

    Students interested in attending TCD for the 2019 school year, need to pick up and complete an application. Applications must then be turned in to guidance no later than Jan 19.

    NAMI DuPage, in partnership with Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital, is proud to offer a peer support group free of charge for high school teens dealing with mental health issues like sadness and anxiety.   This group will take place starting February at NAMI's office in Wheaton, and the deadline to register for this group is Monday, January 7th.  For more information about this free support group and to get the link to register, please see the Take Care Wall outside Mrs. Waspi's office.

    Clubs

    In the latest Scholastic Bowl news, the Sentinels traveled to Manteno last night to take on Mr. Chamberlain's old school, and boy did Westmont make him proud! Playing with only 3 players, versus 5, the JV team dominated the first game 370-190 and won again 230-180 in the second match.

    On the Varsity front, Senior Connor Duquette had an AMAZING night, getting 8 tossups in the first match, and ending up with 11 on the night. Fellow Seniors Bernadette Marbach and Katie Rosol also had strong nights, as did Juniors Stephanie Walker and Trishia Cueto. The Sentinels handily won the first match, 350-190, but fell in the second match, 220-180. Varsity is now 3-3.

    Athletics

    Attention boys basketball players ...your cookie dough orders will be ready for pickup immediately after school today.  Please remember to pick them up before heading home today.

    Thank you and have a great day.

    Last night the JV scholastic bowl squad took on Lisle! The team, led by Kiera Sharkey, performed magnificently in what was most of their first scho bo outing ever.  We fell in a close first match 400-310 but returned fire, trouncing the Lions 400-310.  Since the Sentinels had more tossups we are officially beating Lisle this season.  Tossup leaders include Matt with 4, Kiera with 7, and Stephen with 8! Splendid work Sentinels! 

    On the Varsity front, senior Connor Duquette got the Sentinels going in the first match, and juniors Dominic Santore and Trishia Cueto carried the torch. Unfortunately, the Sentinels fell in the first match 320-260. As the second match started, the Sentinels found themselves in an early hole, but clawed back thanks to Seniors Mollie Johnson and Katie Rosol, but were unable to finish the comeback, and the team lost the second match.

    Congratulations to Coach Etheridge on his 300th career coaching victory in their win vs Plano!!
