Week of 05.14.18

Westlake Parents and Guardians:

Friday’s Color Fun Run was a huge success!  Students enjoyed all the festivities of the event especially when the color blasts happened.  As students came back into the building after the Color Fun Run they were certainly covered in color and with lots of laughter and smiles.  Our school community certainly made lasting memories through this event!

A HUGE shout out to our wonderful PTO for putting on this very successful and fun event.  We are so grateful to have such a supportive and dedicated group of parents supporting our school community.  Thank you, Westlake PTO, for your hard work and effort around the Color Fun Run.

Wolverines Image Revealed

Our school community voted and the results are in for the main image to represent the WLMS Wolverines!  Students received an e-mail regarding this reveal at the end of last week so feel free to check out that communication as well. Thank you for your support through this process in identifying a new mascot and image.  Check out the student newspaper for an article about this process!


Meet the Music Department

Over a week ago I sent out a communication inviting parents and students to join us Monday at 6:30pm to meet the new music teachers to WLMS.  As you may recall, both Mr. Gill and Mr. Di Nuovo are retiring at the end of this school year.  We have hired a new Band teacher as well as a Choir teacher to join our current Orchestra teacher, Mrs. Dunford, in the WLMS Music Department.  Please join us for an informal meet and greet on Monday at 6:30pm to meet our music department.
