App-A-Thon at Westgate Tuesday, June 2
Volunteers from Deloitte Digital will be at Westgate on Tuesday, June 2 to build an App to help extend volunteer opportunities to all of our community members.  The seven volunteers will start at 8:30 a.m. and create a custom App for our use in ONE DAY!  Students will be taken in groups to observe the work of these techie professionals.  Selected students will eat lunch with the engineers and designers in order to ask more questions about careers in this field.

The App will be available for download from the Private Parent Page once completed.  We will send a message reminder.  We hope this new technology will make volunteering at Westgate easier for all!

Thank you Deloitte Digital!  This is an amazing gift to our school!

2014-2015 STUDENT FEES
If Your Student Fees are Still Outstanding, Please Pay Immediately!

The Per Student Fee for 14-15 is $275 for a K-8 student and $300 for a high school student. This fee covers ALL school supplies for the whole school year, technology, licensing, software and updating, as well as most of the school year's activities and guest speakers. An exception would  be extra special optional activities such as outdoor ed or Civil War re-enactment.

The best news is that for each new family you refer to Westgate, they accept and attend through October 1st, you will get one student fee reimbursed to you. The actual fee is due at the beginning of this school year.
 
The fee is easily payable right now by clicking into the school store or by mailing a check in to the school. If you have any questions about the Per Student Fee or if you  need help with a pay plan, please email our business office.

Standards Based Grading
Standards Based Grading
Westgate Community School uses Standard Score as our grade book for our Standard's Based Grading (SBG) system. This year we will be creating short videos to help parents understand our use of SBG and why we believe it is a progressive step forward in education.

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.
