This is Bill Pitcock, Principal of Westlane Middle School with the Westlane Wildcat Weekly Message.
The Washington Township Parent Council Network invites all parents/caregivers to join us for our next meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, April 17th. This month’s topic is the “Achievement Gap”. You’ve probably heard the phrase, but what does it really mean and how are our Washington Township students directly affected? Join us as we go beyond the headlines and have a discussion with Assistant Superintendent Dr. Jon Milleman about the performance gaps between subgroups of students. As always the meeting will also include updates from Dr. Woodson and Mr. Tony Dzwonar, our School Board Liaison. This event will be held at the H. Dean Evans Community and Education Center, located at 8550 Woodfield Crossing Blvd. You can find more information about Parent Council Network on our website (www.msdwtparentcouncil.org) or Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/wtparentcouncil/ ).
–We will be testing for ILEARN and NWEA from 9:30-11:30 AM on April 23-25, April 30-May 3, and May 7-8. Please limit appointments during this time.
-This is a reminder for all of our students that get dropped off – Students may not exit cars until 9:00 AM. If you have set up a meeting with a teacher, then the teacher will let you in.
– PTO will be collecting school supplies in order to donate to our TERRIFIC teaching staff. Students who bring supplies in will receive a free slushee on Thursdays during their assigned lunch periods. Ask your advisory teacher for a brown paper bag to put your supplies in and complete the form attached to the bag. All supplies must be submitted to Mrs. Richmond in the bookstore. Know that all school supplies should be brand new. Please contribute if you are able to do so. Bags are also available at Ms. Clarkson’s desk.
