Olympic Triathlon: The 2019 Olympic Triathlon has concluded and all we can say is “thank you.” Thank you to everyone who contributed via donation, fundraising and volunteering, thank you. We are truly better together and the past 6 weeks is a great of example of how amazing this community really is. Together we raised over $42,000 for Westlake Charter School and this would not be possible without the support of parents, students, staff and community.
Kudos: Families, everything WAVE does isn’t possible without you. During the Olympic Triathlon Event we had over 50 volunteers help students challenge themselves at the obstacle course, show off their love of Spanish and make beautiful pinwheels to display on campus. Less than a week later, 10 parent and student volunteers led STEM stations during our fun and engaging Family Science Night. Additionally, thank you to everyone who attended Science Night and our first Parent Mixer. We truly demonstrate what happens when school and community collaborate.
