WESTMONT – Westmont High School celebrated its homecoming week with activities all weeklong, including a pep rally Thursday.

The rally included performances by the dance team and cheer squads showcasing their talents.

“We also had a teachers vs. alumni students dodgeball game,” said Matthew Popielarczyk, the school’s Student Council Sponsor. “We tried to keep it a secret and a surprise for the students.” 

The students really enjoyed the dodgeball surprise, he said.

“Homecoming as a whole was a good success,” Popielarczyk said. “The students in charge did an excellent job. They stepped up to the plate and showed a lot of dedication.”
