Olympic Triathlon: Our 12th annual Westlake Charter School Olympic Triathlon is off to a great start! The Triathlon is not just about fundraising but celebrating and supporting our three specialties of Art, Spanish and P.E. which are led by fully credentialed specialty teachers. Our annual Olympic Triathlon allows WCS to celebrate this trifecta and offer our family, friends and community a way to support this work.

  • On Friday, November 1st our students will participate in a special day of learning on the Olympic Triathlon Event Day. This day is completely staffed and planned by our parent volunteers in conjunction with WCS staff members. We need your help to make this day fun and successful for our school and students. Please be on the lookout for an event day sign up soon. In the meantime, if you would like to get involved with planning please click HERE and fill out the form to be contacted. We currently need help planning the obstacle course, handing out prizes and more.
  • You can get started fundraising today! Please visit http://pledgestar.com/westlakecharter to set up a family donation page. You can customize it with student name(s), a photo and donation goal. It is easy to quickly request sponsors via email, text or social media explaining why WCS is amazing and how they can help us meet our goal this year. Setting up a family site only takes a couple minutes!
  • This flyer recently came home with all of the information you need to make this an easy and successful fundraiser. Thank you for your continued support!

Parent Mixer: WAVE invites you to attend our very first Parent Mixer on November 2nd from 6-9pm. A parent/guardian event is a great way to meet or reconnect with other families at Westlake Charter School. This is a parent/guardian only event, so childcare is needed. There will be raffle items, refreshments and an opportunity to purchase beverages. Please be on the lookout for additional information!

Kudos: Thank you to the incredible Fall Festival committee for organizing and leading a fabulous event. The entire day wouldn’t have been possible without over 100 volunteers, hundreds of donations and our supportive community. We are always better together!
