Principal's Weekly Message


West Lake Wildcat Families~ 


We are looking forward to another wonderful week at WLMS to support community, student achievement and growth! Welcome back to our Track 3 Families! 


Reminder...we do not have school on Monday, November 11th in observance of the Veteran’s Day holiday. Tracks 1, 3 and 4 have school this Saturday. Arrival will be the same as a typical school day; however, dismissal will be at 11:05. Breakfast will be served.



To recognize students’ hard work and outstanding academic achievement, Tracks 3 and 4 Honor Roll Celebrations will be taking place this week! They will have their SMART Block social on Friday, November 15 . We appreciate our parents and PTSA for sponsoring this event.



We are looking for parents who would be willing to serve on our School Improvement Team. We meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 2:45 for about an hour. Please email if you are willing to serve or provide your input. The next meeting will be Monday, November 25th.



The WLMS PTSA is exploring the option of leveraging a mobile phone app to distribute communications & information to parents. Please respond to this survey to help us gauge interest. Thanks!




8th grade students- Don’t forget to buy your 8th grade t-shirt! They will be on sale on Fridays at the end of the 8th grade hall for $10. Once you buy your shirt, you will be entered into a drawing!  You could win one of three $10 gift cards to Chick-fil-a or a free yearbook. 



Fall Athletic Teams ended their seasons with great efforts each week, winning records, and notable sportsmanship! This week Winter Athletic Tryouts begin on Tuesday, November 12th. Winter Sports Schedules can be found here.




WLMS is starting something new and exciting for our Wildcat Students!! See below for the Wildcat Wave information!

Wildcat Wave

Do you want to be an active participant in West Lake MS basketball this season? Are you a passionate sports fan? Do you want to make new friends and become a part of the WLMS culture? Do you want to make your middle school life more fun and enjoyable? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions than you are a perfect candidate to join the Wildcat WAVE.

WLMS is pleased to announce the Wildcat WAVE for all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders interested! This club will allow members access to all home basketball games and provide students with a safe, organized, and supervised way to enjoy our home athletic events. Students will be able to stay after school in a supervised location and then head to the game together.

For $25 students will receive a t-shirt and admission to every home basketball game throughout the season.

How do students join the Wildcat Wave?

Simply fill out the t-shirt order form (on the website, in the front office, or in the gym lobby) and place the form and your payment ($15) in an envelope and give it to your homeroom teacher. All checks should be made out to the West Lake Athletic Booster Club. All forms are due by the following due by: Friday, November 15, 2019

After each game, it is important all rides are on time and the staff responsible for monitoring students are not waiting for students to be picked up. Rides should be ready by 6:30pm for basketball pick up. Students may also ride the Activity Bus which departs our school at 5:00 PM. If you have any questions, please contact Coach Kerr at or Coach West, WLMS Athletic Director at



We are looking forward to a week full of focused learning at West Lake MS!
