Each year, Westgate holds a Fundraising campaign in which our entire community pitches in to reach our goal! We are so excited to announce that this year’s Annual Campaign is supporting The Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant. This grant will provide Westgate with much needed outdoor/play area improvements. We are 1 of 6 finalists that will be awarded up to $120,000! Westgate will need to provide 20% of the total amount awarded to back our commitment to the grant. We hope you can pitch in and help reach our goal of $25,000. We could easily reach our goal if we had a $75 donation per student. We will definitely reach our goal if EVERY family contributes what they can.
Fundraising provides Westgate with improvement items each year that are not a part of the overall budget. These improvements are essential to growing our kids and our community. We look forward to the amazing future that is in store for Westgate, our kids and our community.
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.
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.
