Executive Director's Corner
September is the time of year when Summer gently gives way to Fall, and the school year revs up into full speed. From Missoula theatrical performances to our first Coffee and Conversations and From Outdoor Ed to the K-8 Fun Run, September will be a busy, fun-filled month at Westgate!
September’s Advocacy Theme is “Self-Awareness – I am Strong.” During this month, students will learn more about themselves, their emotions, to honor their inner-voice and their personal strengths. Self-Awareness is a skill we can all improve, so Westgate continues to grow in this area every year. As a staff, we are setting personal growth goals and beginning our coaching cycles. Being self-aware helps each of us target our own area of growth for the upcoming year.
The K-8 Fun Run will be held on Friday, September 22. During this month students and families are encouraged to #FindYourFitness which connects to our Advocacy theme of Self-Awareness. How will your family find their fitness? Will you go on walks together or play at the park? Will you have a 5-minute family dance party after school? Or, will you stretch each morning as the day begins? These fitness rituals don’t have to be difficult to fit into the day. Find what works for your family and add some fitness in to your routine! Share your fitness rituals and inspire other families @westgatewild and don’t forget to #FindYourFitness.
Once again, thank you for choosing Westgate and being part of this wonderful community. I look forward to a great September!
Executive Director, Westgate Community School
