Dear Westlake Parents and Guardians:
Fall has arrived and we certainly felt it in the weather over the weekend! Students have been really digging in to their learning across the school and, believe it or not, we are only few weeks away from the end of the first quarter. Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming up on October 11th and 12th where you will have the opportunity to talk with your student’s teachers about the progress your student is making this year. More information about Parent/Teacher Conferences will be coming out shortly so stay tuned!
Grief group counseling opportunity
Here at Westlake we have a wonderful partner in Judi’s House. For the third year in a row, this organization will bring counselors to our school to provide free weekly group therapy during the school day for students who are in the grieving process.
“Judi’s House is the only free-standing organization in the Metro Denver area devoted solely to supporting grieving children and their families. Since 2002, Judi’s House has supported more than 8,000 youth, ages 3-25, and their caregivers, toward our vision that no child should be alone in grief.”
We have availability for 10 students to participate in the curriculum. If this feels like a valuable support for you now, we would like to offer this opportunity to your child.
Here is an article on Supporting Your Child in Grief.
Please email or call Kathy Cochran, WLMS counselor, for registration materials and information. 720-972-5212
