Westgate Mission Change Approved Through Community Vote
Thank you to all of our families who voted in this important ballot question.  With over 98% approval, we will be updating our mission to:
"Westgate Community School is a small school of innovation that seeks to serve gifted students who would benefit from a creative, collaborative and less traditional educational environment."

We feel this updated mission statement more accurately describes the educational environment at Westgate Community School.
Annual Campaign! Please Give What You Can!
Monday, November 28 kicks off our Annual Campaign.  

There is a lot to love about Westgate, and we invite you to consider what the school means to your family. Your donations are crucial to the Annual Campaign because as a charter, your child's school does not receive the same funding as other schools in the district.

No amount is too small, or too large; our goal is to reach $30,000. Your contribution of even $5 will make a difference, and you are encouraged to participate at whatever level you are able. The Annual Campaign runs from November 28th through January 31.

Multi-Cultural Bake Sale

Hi Westgate Parents! 

At the beginning of this year, the high schoolers at Westgate started up a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) to help make our high school more self-sustainable. To help kick start our NGO, the finance group has decided to put on a Multi-Cultural Winter Bake Sale on December 15th. The bake sale starts at 12:00 p.m. and goes until 2:00 p.m. and is during student-led conferences. To ensure the success of our bake sale we are asking for parents to bring in baked goods, either homemade or store bought, from whichever country/culture that they would like. If you do decide to donate, please sign-up using the following link: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a49a9aa2baafc1-multicultural.   You can bring your items from 8:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on the day of the bake sale (12/15). In addition to this signup genius, we sent out paper forms in Friday folders if you would prefer to sign up that way. These forms can be dropped off in the front office.  We also ask that you provide the ingredients for your item to eliminate any allergy concerns. 

Thank you!

Carline Change Starts Wednesday, August 17
Please see the email sent to you on Tuesday, August 16.  The map is also posted on the Parent Page.

As Westgate grows, the process of Carline that once worked is no longer serving our community.
After careful consideration, we are making some changes to the “Big Kid” 5-12 Carline.  This has been the place where there are the biggest concerns surrounding accidents and injury to kids walking between cars and to staff monitoring Carline.
Starting Wednesday, August 17, there will be NO PARKING IN THE UPPER LOT during Carline.   The 5-12 Carline will now work much like the K-4 line.  All students will walk to the median to wait to be picked up by their families.  There will be one line of traffic for K-4 and on line of traffic for 5-12.  Please take turns merging at the end of the lines.
If you want to park and pick up your child/ren, please use the lower lot.  We understand that spots are limited, so we encourage everyone to use the Carline system.  This will be the fastest way to get your children.

If you park and walk up to get your children, you will need to pick them up at their designated class/grade area. All students will be crossing over to the lot and must be picked up there.  No children will be allowed to be pulled out as they walk with their class to the designated area.  (Thank you K-4 parents.  This has been working great this year!)  

Westgate Community School is committed to nondiscrimination in relation to race, color, sex, age, religion, creed, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation and disability in its educational programs, activities, operations and employment decisions. Harassment on such bases will not be tolerated.
