Principal's Weekly Message

West Lake Wildcat Families,

We are pleased to share that two of Ms. Watkins teams who participated in the Online Stock Market challenge received 1st and 2nd place state honors. They were honored this past Friday in Greenville at the 33rd Annual Awards Banquet for NC Council of Economic Education. One student was recognized as the 10th place national winner for the Investwrite Essay Competition. We are so very proud of Ms. Watkins and her students for being state and national leaders!


It is hard to believe we are nearing the end of the school year. Track 1 begins their End of Grade Testing this week. Please see below for the testing schedule. Tracks 2, 3, and 4 have the last few weeks of the 4th quarter in front of them with testing the last two weeks in June. I am confident that our teachers have worked intentionally and diligently to ensure students’ learning is aligned to the state standards in all content areas.


For all families and students:

Please work with your student on their understanding of the purpose and importance of doing their very best at the end of the year to demonstrate what they have learned throughout the school year. Our staff has been working to share previous data with students and help them understand scale scores and percent correct on their prior years’ data to set attainable goals moving forward. The EOG data is utilized to determine class placement and interventions for future school years; therefore, it is imperative for students to take their time and do their best. Through my walkthroughs, our staff is very intentional in their work aligned with the state standards to ensure your student is understanding and learning.
