Westlake Parents and Guardians:

We have busy at school engaged in so much learning!  In fact this past week I was fortunate to observe students in 8th grade Science classes presenting their Mars rover and lander proposals which included researching and calculating the best places to land on Mars.  What a great way for students to experience learning in an authentic way!
