Week of 09.23.19

Dear Westlake Parents and Guardians:

Parents and Families—this year’s main fundraiser is the Westlake Middle School Booster Bash! It’s a two-week fundraising campaign that kicks off with a Pep Rally on September 20th and ends on October 4th.  Throughout the fundraising campaign students will have the chance to qualify for our EPIC Booster Bash on October 4th.

Students qualify by earning $60 in donations or sending 20 emails using our easy emailer system on After our Pep Rally kick off you will be able to register your students and use our donation tools on

Our school goal is to raise $18,000 for PTO general fund, classroom furniture and staff mini-grants. So please help our school by getting connected to friends and family and asking them to help our school. We know your students won’t want to miss out on the Booster Bash filled with inflatables, games, giveaways and time out of class!




Grief Group

Judi’s House is a nonprofit organization that offers free group grief counseling for students during the school day. A grief counselor would lead a multi-grade level weekly group for about 10 weeks. If your child has experienced loss of a family member or friend and you feel like this could be a valuable fit for your child, please contact your grade level counselor in the next week to discuss further.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Believe it or not, parent-teacher conferences are less than a month away! We will have conferences on Tuesday, October 8th from 4:30 -7:30 pm and Wednesday, October 9th from 4:00-7: 00 pm. Conferences will be arena style in our gyms. This means that you will have an opportunity to talk with each of your child’s teachers for about 3-4 minutes. In order to make conferences as efficient as possible for families, we will be having families sign up for half-hour time slots. We will soon be sending out a sign-up for time slots. Please lookout for this email. If you need to contact teachers prior to conferences, you are always welcome to email or call teachers with questions or concerns.
