WHS Spring Musical Information:
Our WHS Winter Musicals are right around the corner. The purpose of this letter is to provide you with details regarding our performances.
Like last year, we will be having our performances at Glenn Westlake Middle School. (GWMS is located behind Manor Hill School, on Main St. south of Roosevelt Rd. This should allow us more space to safely enjoy the show. Listed below are some important details regarding our musicals:
Students are asked to wear dress clothes for their performance
All families will enter GWMS at the Main Entrance, Door #1.
Doors will open at 6:40 p.m.
One adult will be asked to drop off your child, and then pick them up after the show at their assigned classroom.
Classroom teachers will supervise students during the time the students are not on stage.
Classroom assignments are as follows:

Part of being an "All-Star Learner and Leader" is helping others. This year instead of hosting a WHS Family Fun Night at the school, we decided to coordinate a WHS School Community Service Night at Feed My Starving Children. Check out the Flyer below! Toward the bottom of the flyer you will find a direct link to register for this event.
Please consider joining the WHS Staff and Families in what promises to be a fun and rewarding night of community service. See details below!
