Got Junk? Spring Cleaning? Help Support 11th Graders In Service - Taking Donations Now!
The 11th Graders are holding a Community Garage Sale on May 1st, during and after our day at the Park, in order to raise money for our Service Learning Trip to Birmingham, Alabama next month. We are volunteering with the Collegiate Challenge arm of Habitat for Humanity to help build sturdy houses in Tornado Alley, and we are still about a thousand dollars from our goal. We currently are requesting donations of useable and sellable objects - furniture, toys, knick-knacks, books, clothing - anything that someone else might see and think, "Ah, a treasure!" or, at least, "Ah, a thing that is whole and useful to me!" We are so grateful for the support of our community! If you have any questions, please, email josie.siegel@westgateschool.org

Click on the icon to be taken to the story.

Westgate was the focus of a Fox News Story that aired at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, January 8.  The story was about Westgate being a "No Homework" School.  We are excited the media is helping to spread the word about all of the amazing things happening at WCS!
 
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.
