Missoula Theater Company Returns 11/12 to 11/16: We are so excited to welcome back the Missoula Children’s Theater Company to Westlake Charter School! This year, our K-8th grade students will audition after school on Tuesday, November 12th, and work all week to put on two performances of The Tortoise Versus the Hare on Saturday, November 16th. Families have asked for the dates in advance so they can prioritize Missoula with other competing schedules. Your student will need to be available after school every day 11/12 to 11/15 for rehearsals. Detailed schedules and information will be available in October. Email admin@westlakecharter.com with any questions. 

6th Grade Info Night: On Tuesday, October 1st at 6:00 PM we are having our 6th Grade Information Night. We know there is a lot to consider when choosing a Middle School. That evening, we will share how our middle school program compares to other local options. This event is geared toward 5th grade parents and guardians, but all parents and guardians are welcome to attend! Click HERE to RSVP. 

Field Refresh: Our staff and families have been concerned about the status of our playing field due to drainage issues and rough patches. We have taken that feedback and coordinated with our Landscaping team to create a plan to correct the issues. During October break, the field repair will begin on half of the field. The east half of the field will be fenced off and unavailable from October Break through Spring Break. The entire field will be reopened after Spring break and remain open through October 2020 when the second half of the field will be repaired.
