A Few Notes from The Principal

Dear Westgate Families,

Thank you for the great start to the 2018-2019 school year! It has been a busy quarter of learning and fun at Westgate! We hope that you will join us for your child’s Parent Teacher Conference in order to learn even more about your child’s progress so far this year. We know it is important to continue to develop the relationship and communication between all stakeholders and we will continue to look for more opportunities to strengthen collaboration between parents and teachers. Parent Teacher Conferences are October 15th and 17th. Just a reminder that our green Student Notebook is one of our greatest forms of daily communication from school to home. Please be checking this nightly and using it to communicate with your child’s teacher.

We appreciate your help with following our safety procedures at Westgate on a daily basis. If you are walking your child in each morning, please stop by the front office and sign in as a visitor. During the school day, we do ask that parents call and make arrangements with the teacher if they are planning to visit the classroom or want to meet with a teacher as we want to preserve our instructional time with our students. If you are at school to pick your child up during the school day, it is important that you come to the front office to sign your child out each time. Lastly, thanks for your support with our traffic pattern in the parking lot as it has been smoother thanks to families following the No Parking and Bus Lane signs. We appreciate all you do to ensure your child and every other student’s safety at Westgate.

Our Community Club meetings these past two months have had new parents getting involved! Your support with Community Club is vital to our school’s success. We also appreciate all of the financial support with our Westgate CC Fundraiser. Thanks for continuing to donate to help our CC support the activities at Westgate and the needs of our classroom. One great way for parents to get involved at Westgate is to attend our Community Club meetings which are held the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 PM. Our next meeting is November 13th. All are welcome to join us.
