Westside Achievement Middle School hosted their "lock in" for the second year in a row Friday night.

The event recognizes students who have exhibited good behavior and have held passing grades in all of their classes.

The school stockpiled snacks for the night and planned some fun activities for the students.

"There's been so much focus on the bad things going on that we wanted to show the focus on something good happening at Westside," said volunteer Felisha Mason. "These children have worked at to get where they're at today. This is not an easy task."

Many local businesses chipped in and donated supplies to make the evening fun for the participants.

Students were "locked" in the school until 7:30 a.m. Saturday.
