Good Evening Westlake Warrior Eagle Scholars and Families.  This is your Principal, Ms. Taylor, with your weekly update for the week of November 14 - 18, 2022. We hope that you all are doing well and staying healthy. Please find the latest updates below.

Report Cards: Report Cards for the 2nd Marking Period were distributed to scholars on Tuesday, November 8. If your scholar was absent or you did not receive their report card, please contact our school counselor, Ms. Nguyen.

Spirit Week: Westlake will be hosting Spirit Week November 14- 18. There will be theme days/activities for scholars to participate in. Please ask your scholar to share the information regarding this event with you.

School Pictures: Scholars will take their school pictures on Tuesday, November 15. Picture packet information was sent home 2 weeks ago. All scholars will need to take a photo to be added to Aeries regardless of whether or not a picture package is purchased. If you did not receive the order form please ask your scholar to pick up another one from the main office.

If you have any questions please call the main office. 

Wakanda Forever (Private Screening): On Friday, November 18 there will be a private screening of Wakanda Forever for 180 Westlake Scholars. Each day this past week we held a drawing in the morning to announce the names of the scholars that would be able to attend. Those scholars whose names were pulled during the drawing will receive a permission slip on Monday, November 14. We will go to see the movie on Friday, November 18 at 10:30 AM. We also need 4-5 Parent Volunteers/Chaperones to accompany us on this trip. If you are interested please contact Ms. Taylor (maya.taylor@ousd.org).
