Summer Enrichment: Westlake will keep our Distance Learning website available all summer and we will be adding a Summer Enrichment page to the website. There will be links to Lexia and Freckle, as well as additional resources, for families to access if they would like to have their students continue with learning over the summer.
BASE Summer Program Survey: Our team continues to monitor guidance from local health partners and develop plans which may lead to BASE opening this summer. In order to help guide the development of a summer program, we’re asking families who might be interested in attending BASE in June or July to complete this brief survey.
8th Grade Promotion: Our digital 8th Grade Promotion on Wednesday, May 27th at 4:00 PM. Please save the date to witness this important event for our 8th-grade students. We will provide information about how to log into the digital event.
Chromebook Return: Students who are continuing at Westlake for the 2020-2021 school year will have the option to keep their borrowed chromebook to continue optional learning through the summer. We ask that all students who are not returning, including current 8th grade students, return their chromebooks on Thursday, May 28th or Friday, May 29th. Click HERE to let us know if you would like to continue to borrow your chromebook for summer learning, or to make an appointment to return your chromebook.
Athletics Celebration: We had a wonderful year of Explorer Athletics. Click HERE to watch our End of Year celebration. Thank you to our wonderful volunteer coaches for making this year a success.
Field Day: Our Distance Learning Field Day will launch on Wednesday, May 27th at 9:00 AM. Teacher’s will post the Field Day website on Google Classrooms for you to join in the fun. We hope you picked up your field day bag. The bag included just a couple of materials to support field day. We hope you do the “Hidden Message Relay” and the “Minute to Win it – Cookie Challenge.” On the website there are multiple activities to do. When you click on the activity it will include a video, directions for the activity and materials needed. Some of the videos are made by our amazing 5th grade student leaders! You can choose what activities you would like to do as a family: you can do as many or as few as you would like! Don’t forget to post on social media #WCSVirtualFieldDay.
Each grade level has been assigned a color for the day to show grade-level spirit.
High School Update: Look for an email next Sunday, May 31st, with an update on our high school!
May is Bike Month: Westlake students have already logged 1,600 trips so far! Our goal is to hit over 2,000 trips combined. Want to join in the fun? Simply create an account HERE and start logging your student’s bike trips today. Every 10 minutes of riding equals 1 trip. Each school will have random prize winners so as long as your student has an account and logged at least 1 trip they are eligible!
Volunteer Hours: Families, please take a moment to log all of your volunteer hours for the 19/20 school year by clicking HERE. You can quickly log all hours combined and receive an email confirmation.
