Principal's Weekly Message
West Lake Wildcat Families~
As a reminder tomorrow, Monday, January 20, 2020, is a holiday,and we will not have school.
For the 2nd semester, the grade level Assistant Principals will be reviewing grades weekly. Students who are earning a 69 or lower in a class will be prioritized for that class during at least one SMART Block session in the following week. This support is to ensure students are learning and understanding the standards and are successful in all of their classes. We want to ensure work habits are not interfering with academics and learning. You can check your student’s grades at any time in PowerSchool.
Last week our 6th and 7th graders took mid-year benchmark assessments in LA and Math. Your student will receive additional support with any standards they have not yet mastered from the first semester. This will be done during SMART Block or small group instruction during their classes. 8th grade will take their benchmarks this week.
The magnet and year-round calendar choice is currently open until the end of January 2020.
This past Thursday, January 16th was our WLMS Expo and it was a wonderful evening!! We appreciate the community’s support to continue excellence at WLMS!
Be sure to share with your neighbors and friends that WLMS is also offering tours on the following days/times:
January 23 at 3:00

We appreciate the efforts of our parents and families in supporting our teachers by donating snacks and water bottles for their weekly meeting. The sign-up for the Snack Shack is below. We are hoping for new families to send donations too!
Here is the link to the sign up genius for the snack shack.
Any student in the 7th or 8th grade that is currently not in NJHS can apply now. The application is located on the WLMS website under the Activities subheading. You can find out more about the organization by reviewing the WLMS NJHS By-Laws which are located on that page as well.
Our girls and boys basketball teams are on the court this week. They play Tuesday at home against Fuquay Varina and at Holly Grove this Thursday. Come cheer and support our student athletes! Winter Sports Schedules can be found here.
We are looking forward to a great week at WLMS where we continue to focus on growth and achievement for every student!
