Chivas donates 2K tickets to students

DOWNEY - West Middle School students scored big recently by being invited to the final game of the Chivas USA season.The jam-packed game was filled to capacity with fans cheering on the Chivas versus Seattle. Chivas rewarded West Middle School students with family four-packs of tickets for their achievements in the CSTs last May. West scored the highest API in the district, and any student who improved "significantly" in their test scores and moved up a testing band received tickets. More tickets were given away during Character Counts Week last week. Students who showed great character were nominated by their teacher to receive tickets. With more than 2,000 tickets given away to West students, the school represented a large crowd at the Home Depot Center. "The students were ecstatic to attend and had a superb time," teacher Dina Carter said.
