This is Bill Pitcock, Principal of Westlane Middle School with the Westlane Wildcat Weekly Message.
-School Pictures are Monday, August 19. We will take pictures during the day here at Westlane. Order forms did go home in Advisory. If you do not have a form, but would still like to order, you may go to inter-state.com/order – use the order code 40179JA to order.
–NWEA – we will be giving our first round of NWEA tests this week. We will give the tests first thing in the morning. Please make sure your student is here each day on time. If you wish to see previous scores on NWEA, please look on Skyward on the portfolio tab for previous reports.
–Athletics start this week. I encourage every parent to download the “Eventlink” app from the Apple store or Google Play. After you download the app, you can select the sport or sports you wish to follow and will always know when events are. Throughout all athletic seasons, we know that weather can impact our sporting events. We will make our best safety judgements as early as possible and communicate them to the school community. Please know that, when events are at other schools, we have to wait until the host school makes the call. In all instances, we will use the email portion of School Messenger to let everyone know. Also know that nearly all middle school athletic departments are sustained solely on ticket sales and do charge for all events. This includes Westlane.
–Speaking of Athletics, MSDWT is planning for our future. As we plan for the future of WT Schools and continue our review of athletic facilities, we would like to Invite any stakeholder in the community to a tour of the current conditions of our athletic facilities. These tours are open to anyone in the community.
