Good Evening Westlake Warrior Eagle Families
This the Friday Update for February 8, 2019.
News on Campus:
- Congratulations to our Warrior Eagle Spellers Langston White (6th Grade) and Amajae Allen (7th Grade). They competed in last night’s district spelling bee. They took 4th and 5th place. Way to go! We are looking forward to next year’s Spelling Bee to take 1st and 2nd place.
- The California Healthy Kids Survey is now available for you and your scholar to provide feedback about Westlake. This is a very important survey in that it drives the work that we do as a community. Please go to the Westlake website and click on the links provided to complete both the student and parent surveys. All surveys need to be completed by February 28. We appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback so that we can continue to make Westlake a great place to learn and grow.
- Attention 8th Grade Parents, we are only 3 months away from our Promotion Activities. Today we sent home an updated Activities Sheet with your 8th Grade Scholar. Please note the change in date of the Promotion Ceremony. It is time to order promotion gowns. Forms will be sent home next Friday, February 15 and the money will be due by Friday, March 1. The cost of the gown is $20 and can be paid by cash or check to the main office. If you have any questions please contact our Admin. Assistant, Ms. Ebado.
- You can now order your Westlake Warrior Eagle Hoodie. The cost of the hoodie is $25. Just click on the link on the website and fill out the form. Payment will need to be received prior to the order being placed.
- Parents, please talk with your scholar about the importance of being on time to class and prepared every day. We are still experiencing a lot of scholars tardy to 1st period. Being on time first thing in the morning will set the tone for the rest of the day.
- February is Black History Month. We will have events throughout the month, culminating with two big events at the end of the month. On February 26, our scholars will pay tribute to Unsung Heroes in Black History in an Assembly. On February 27, SF Jazz in partnership with Samba Funk, will be performing live for our scholars as well. Please feel free to stop by and join in the celebration!
