Principal's Weekly Message

West Lake Wildcat Families~ We are looking forward to a wonderful second week at WLMS as we continue to #BeTheOne and #MakeADifference for ALL students! If you’d like to learn more about our work at WLMS, you can view our website at least weekly at or follow us on Twitter @WLMS_Wildcats. The Twitter feed can also be found on the bottom right side of our school website. We feature our students and staff so that you can stay connected and know about the focus on excellence by everyone at WLMS!


Below are the 5 NC and WCPSS School Improvement Indicators that we are focusing on at WLMS this school year. We encourage all stakeholders to be active participants in focusing on the work that will have the most impact on ALL of our Wildcat Students to provide the best learning environment for each student, every day!


A1.07 ALL teachers employ effective classroom management and reinforce classroom rules and procedures by positively teaching them.

A4.01 The school implements a tiered instructional system that allows teachers to deliver evidence-based instruction aligned with the individual needs of students across all tiers.

A4.06 ALL teachers are attentive to students’ emotional states, guide students in managing their emotions, and arrange for supports and interventions.

E1.06 The school regularly communicates with parents/guardians about its expectations of them and the importance of the curriculum of the home (what parents can do at home to support their children’s learning).

A2.04 Instructional teams develop standards aligned units of instruction for each subject and grade level.
