Greetings Westlake Families!
This is Mr. Ferrer, Principal of Westlake Middle School with your weekly update for the week of February 27th. If you miss any part of this message please visit our website.
Westlake Middle School’s Science Department is pleased to announce that we will be holding a Westlake Science Fair the week of April 24th. Our top projects will be then entered into the Oakland Unified School District’s Science Fair in May. Please support your scholar in completing their science project.
This week we handed all of our scholars their progress report, please review it with them. We also recognized over 200 of our scholars who made the Honor Roll with a 3.0 GPA or higher at our grade-level family assemblies. Over more than half of our scholars made the Counselor’s List, Assistant Principal’s List, and Principal’s List.
We are excited to bring in Mr. Moses Omolade, our new Community Schools Manager. As an additional administrator for us, Mr. Omolade will be working very closely with our scholars and parents in supporting them to be successful here at Westlake. Please get to know him as he reaches out to you.
As you may know, Westlake Middle School will be sharing its campus next year with a charter school. This is a legal right under California Law Proposition 39. We will know which charter school will be sharing our campus in May. At our next Parents of Westlake Meeting on March 9th, there will be a district presentation with additional information. Please consider attending.
Please encourage your scholars to continue to do well and to ensure they meet our promotion requirements of 2.5 GPA or higher, no D or F in English, no D or F in Math, no suspensions, and a 96% attendance rate. Please contact Ms. Ruffin to monitor your scholar’s progress.
