DECEMBER CONFERENCES – SIGN UP STARTS AT 5:00 P.M. 12-8-13
Students will lead this second round of conferences. A link to the SignUp Genius site is on the PRIVATE PARENT PAGE. Sign up for one 30 minute conference with the Homeroom teacher only. (Students in Spriggs Homeroom, see note on Homeroom Page; you will be meeting in January, 2014. Students in Galyon's Homeroom will meet on THURSDAY ONLY.)
For the first 15 minutes your student will review his or her portfolio of work samples with you. Your student's homeroom teacher will join you for the second 15 minutes to answer questions and share feedback.
Students and teachers are working hard to compile the portfolio of work samples, accompanying rubric, and the presentation guide that students will use for their conferences. We are all excited to see them!
With far fewer time slots necessary, we will finish on Thursday afternoon so that no Friday afternoon conferences will be necessary. Winter Break/1st Semester celebrations will be held on Friday morning, December 20th, at 10:30-11:30 a.m. We will release for an happy, extended Winter Break at 11:30 a.m.
Annual Holiday Party!
On Thursday, December 12th 6-8p.m. we will host our annual school wide Holiday Party complete with a visit from the more famous North Pole resident. We will have snacks, games, a short movie, and some things for the little ones to do. For the first time ever we are having a Holiday Shoppe so that students can buy gifts for friends and family. Don't forget to dress for success in the Ugly Sweater Contest!
In the spirit of Giving and Acts of Kindness in our Westgate Community, we are having a new Toy Drive for GROWING HOME. Growing home is an Adams County non-profit that is located in Westminster that helps children and families in need. Their mission for the past 15 years has been to provide services such as a place to stay for homeless families, food pantry, parenting classes, school supplies, and after school help for families to get back on their feet.
Annual Food Drive
It's and annual tradition to collect food for our community. Canned and non-perishable foods can be dropped off in the front lobby. No glass containers please. Especially valued are all high protein items such as canned meats, peanut butter, and beans.
In past years, Westgate students typically donated about 1800 items to this worthy cause. If each Westgate student brings in only five items each, we will donate 1950 items. If each student brings in 10 items, we can fill the food bank shelves with 3950 items! Let's make this the best year ever! The food we collect is distributed throughout all of Adams County to families in need.
2013-2014 Annual Campaign
Our annual campaign is an extremely import part of our overall fundraising efforts! As a charter school, we have extra operating expenses (including paying for our own facilities) and we really rely on volunteers and donations to support our mission. Many companies will offer matching pledges, so don’t forget to ask!
Please help Westgate Community School grow and prosper again this year by supporting the Annual Campaign starting October 1st. You can make your donation at the school store, or bring an envelope with your cash or check to the school.
