Spring Carnival 2014

It's time to start getting excited about the end of year carnival! Last year we had the carnival on our campus for the first time and it was a BLAST!  We hope to raise even more money this year and top last year's $14,000 profit!

Sign up early and pre-order your tickets!  Friends and family welcome!


Westgate students and staff have the unique opportunity to participate in the field testing for next year’s new state assessment system.   Students in grades 3, 7, and 8 will participate in the Performance Based Assessment (PBA) next week on Wednesday and Thursday.   The 3rd and 8th graders will also participate in the End of Year (EOY) assessment in May.  

Although we will not get students’ scores back, by taking part in the field tests our teachers and students will provide critical feedback and play an important role in the development of Colorado’s future tests.


Standards Based Grading
Teachers sent information to parents about logging into our Standards Based Grading (SBG) system.  A helpful guide can be found on the Parent Page, item #6 in the Folders on the right hand side.   If you are unsure of your student's unique username or password, please write directly to the homeroom or advisory teacher for the information.
Building On Our Success

Last year, Westgate students had the BEST growth percentile in WRITING on TCAP in all of Adams 12.  Westgate 6th, 7th and 8th grade students were also at the top of the district in READING growth and were 2nd highest in MATH growth for the district.   Our  8th grade SCIENCE achievement  scores were the 2nd highest in Adams 12 and the percentage of our 5th graders scoring Proficient or Advanced rose by 25 points!  

As teachers and students collaborate on goals for the spring testing season, we will be seeking to fine tune our smart goals and reinforce the most important skills without compromising our instructional methods that emphasize choice and creativity.
