WE ARE SOUP-ERBLY ONE! 

Please join the Oshkosh West High School community for an evening of celebration.

This event is  designed to highlight the wonderful talents, services and organizations embedded in the Oshkosh West H.S. community that interconnect all of us while community members enjoy a sampling of delicious soups.

The evening is scheduled for Friday, February 7th in the O-room from 4:30-7pm and will precede the Oshkosh West/Oshkosh North varsity boys & girls basketball games.

The cost is $5 to sample a delicious selection of soups.  For $10, you will sample soups, and also take home a gorgeous ceramic bowl created by our Art Department.  There will be only 50 of these unique bowls available on a first come, first serve basis. In addition to soups, the West Culinary Arts program will be providing desserts for sale.  All proceeds will be used to fund the arts.

While you dine, entertainment will be provided by West students in a variety of genres to showcase the talents of our student body.

Hope you can join us!

Fees/Fines in Destiny: A new option was put into place this fall to allow different textbook due dates for semester and year long classes.
