Principal's Weekly Message

West Lake Wildcat Families,

We had a great turnout and enjoyable evening last Thursday for our Expo! Thank you to our current Wildcat Families for sharing the information with your friends, families and neighbors. We have school tours weekly this month as the year-round application period in WCPSS is open through January 30th. Please see our school website for dates by clicking here.


Honor Roll Certificates were sent home with Track 1, 2 and 3 students on Friday. Along with the certificate, you will find a voucher for the student and two adult guests to attend one of two basketball games for free. This Thursday, January 17, we will recognize Tracks 1 and 3 students at half-time of the girls’ basketball game (4:15). On Thursday, February 7, we will recognize Track 2 and 4 students at half-time of the girls’ basketball game (4:15). You are encouraged to stay for both the girls’ and boys’ basketball games to cheer on our Wildcats!


I-ready testing will be conducted with some students throughout the month of January. If your student does participate in this midyear diagnostic benchmark, their results will be sent home. Teachers will be able to provide additional instruction and support for students based on their individual results. If you have any questions, please reach out to Jennifer Hawkins, Intervention Coordinator at WLMS.


Change in Basketball Schedule- We will play Holly Ridge on 1/14/19 at Holly Ridge and on 2/11 play Holly Ridge at West Lake.
