Our Explorer students came to school this week prepared to smile and say cheese! Thank you to our Explorer families for making our first picture day of the 2019-2020 school year a success!

Our 7th grade Explorers kicked off their new unit in Humanities with a feudalism simulation! We are so impressed by these explorers and their willingness to try new things. #JoyfulLearning

School Dismissal Manager: Please remember to update your student’s school dismissal manager. As enrichment classes, athletics, and other after school opportunities launch, it is important that we know where your student is going after school each day. Click HERE to log into your School Dismissal Manager account.

If you plan to have your older student pick up their younger student, please select “Walking with an Older Sibling” on School Dismissal Manager.  Also please put the name of the older sibling in the note. The younger sibling’s teacher will not allow your student to leave until their older sibling arrives at the classroom. If you need help accessing your account, please email admin@westlakecharter.com. 

Call for Coaches: Thank you to Chris Chan, Edwina and Beau Climo, and Jedd Douhab for signing up to coach a volleyball team, and to George Martinez, Aaron Ramirez, Kyle Johnson, and Lorenzo Lee for signing up to coach a flag football team!

If you can coach volleyball for us, or are able to referee flag football or volleyball games, click HERE for the detailed fall schedule and click HERE to sign-up to coach or referee. Thank you for demonstrating what’s possible when school and community collaborate through athletics. Email live@westlakecharter.com with questions.
