AS Live Clubs: The spring season of clubs is upon us! Our middle school students, parent volunteers, and community volunteers are preparing an array of options: arts and crafts, improv, soccer, and fishing! Click HERE to see which clubs are being offered for your student’s grade level and to enter your student in the lottery for a spot. If you’re interesting in chaperoning a club led by middle school students (a great way to earn volunteer hours and support the program), please email live@westlakecharter.com. All clubs except for soccer and fishing need adult chaperones.

Ready Set Play Student  Feedback: Recently we launched Ready, Set, Play to better support positive behavior during recess for our students. Our Explorers have now participated in our recess campaign, Ready, Set, Play, for the last few weeks. We now want to hear from them about their experiences with Ready, Set, Go and how we can improve on this campaign. Students who are interested in providing feedback will be asked to record a quick video message to share their experiences and ideas with the Compass Crew team. Teachers will communicate this information to all 3rd to 8th grade explorers in the coming weeks.
