Come Get ‘Hooked’ On A Book! Our Annual Book Fair Is Coming Up!
We will take you on a swashbuckling journey to the Bookaneer Book Fair: Where books are the treasure!  The book fair will be held Monday, October 24th through Friday, October 28th in the teacher’s lounge.  We will be sending flyers home in Friday Folders on October 21st with more information.  Every year at Westgate, we exceed our revenue goal and this year won’t be an exception.  We are shooting for over $6500 in sales! 
Do you have family members that can’t make the fair?  Does your student read young adult books?  Is your student wanting to start a new book series?  Looking for holiday gifts?
We will be hosting an online book fair that will also go towards our total revenue goal.  More information will be sent out as soon as it is available.  We’re extremely excited to announce that we will also have a book signing opportunity with Jonathan Fenske, author of “Barnacle is Bored”!  If you don’t already have his book in your home library, don’t worry.  We will have extra copies available for purchase during the week of the fair.  If you would like more information on volunteering for this or other events, please email events@westgateschool.org.

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!)
