Students from West Lee Middle School AVID program recently visited the Ronald McDonald House at UNC Chapel Hill. The visit was the culminating event for an outreach project in which students organized a school wide campaign to collect the tabs off of aluminum cans as a fund raiser, to help offset the costs for families staying at Ronald McDonald House. The school collected over 100 pounds of tabs, and AVID students were proud to deliver them during their visit. Accepting the collection for the Ronald McDonald House was Chase McBride, Special Events and Marketing Assistant.

West Lee Invaded By a Pirate!!!!
West Lee 6th graders were amazed, entertained and uplifted by the magical illusions of Captain Jim on Thursday, Feb. 6th. Captain Jim performs “Magic with a Message”, using his talent to artfully combine illusions with positive character building lessons. The students enjoyed watching and listening as Captain Jim talked about life’s challenges and overcoming obstacles while performing amazing tricks with rope, balls, swords, and even live birds! West Lee loves Captain Jim!
