PARCC Testing Begins Monday, March 2
PARCC testing is the new state assessment of math and language arts (replacing TCAP) for grades 3 - 10. All testing will be done on computers this year - no more filling in the bubbles!   You can help your children by being sure they get enough sleep, eat breakfast in the morning and are at school on time each day.

Thank you to K-2 for all of the supportive posters going up all over the school!  It really helps us know we can do our best on the test!
Three More Years!
Westgate is thrilled to announce our charter was unanimously approved for another three years by the Adams 12 Board of Education on January 21, 2015.  The details of the contract will be completed in partnership with the district in the next few months. 

We look forward creating many more wonderful memories together as a community!

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.
