Bringing you the middle school scoop...

Principal's Message

September 15, 2023

Dear Westlake Middle School Families,

Based on parent feedback, we are incorporating the "Weekly Bulletin" into the Paw Print to continue to streamline communications through this platform. It will be the first thing you see after the Principal's Message. Note that the Westlake Wildcats Sports Calendar is now linked at the bottom of the page.

Our afterschool clubs and activities are getting up and running for the year. The Clubs and 2023 - 2024 Clubs and Activities Bulletin is linked below. It will also be discussed with all students in their homebase.

FYI - The Paw Print is sent to students as well as parents.


Once you have access to the newsletter it will update automatically, so go back at any time to see the latest version.

Older versions will be archived on our https://wms.mtplcsd.org/parent-resources/httpsmtplcsdorgfinalsitecomfsadminsitepages1574

Middle School Experience

As we shared at the 6th Grade Woo Hoo Welcome when students are active in their school, they are learning through experience, and engaging in a wider community beyond their academic classes, they see learning as a whole and grow in many ways.
