Hi 2nd Grade Explorer Families,
It's hard to believe the end (and beginning) is near! I will truly miss this energetic bunch of charmers. They have grown SO much this year. I'm proud of each and everyone of them. It's been an honor and privilege to be their teacher.
But before I get too sentimental, I have lots of info to convey to you! Read on!

*Wednesday, June 14th
*Students will wear their 2nd Grade Spirit Shirts (coming soon!)

Yearbooks: Westlake still has 2016-2017 yearbooks for sale! Our student-created yearbooks are $20 a copy and can be purchased from the school's website. Our school has purchased a limited quantity, so they are first come, first serve!
Calling All Explorer Volunteers 30:30:30: Families, as we look forward to the opening of our new campus, we have BIG PLANS! However, these plans will not be successful without you. Our first opportunity is to tackle our School Arrival and Dismissal Program. We are calling for 30 Volunteers a Day, to serve 30 Minute Shifts, for the first 30 Days of School. Volunteers will help with our DAILY Walking School Bus, our Parking Lot procedures and be helping students find their way to Westlake. We will need every family to make our school opening a success, so please, watch THIS VIDEO and then head over to our Volunteer Form to give us an idea of what shifts you are most interested in working during the first 30 days.
WAVE Volunteer Ice Cream Social: Please join us for the WAVE Volunteer Appreciation Ice Cream Social next Wednesday, June 7th from 6-7pm in the Del Paso Campus Quad. Bring the whole family to celebrate and receive recognition for volunteering this year at WCS. There will be a special gift for all families who completed at least 30 hours of service to our amazing school! Please RSVP HERE!
Volunteer Hours: Click HERE to record your hours on the Volunteer Builder site. Please note that the final day to record volunteer hours for this school year is June 16th. Any hours completed after June 14th should be applied to the next school year. If you have any questions please visit https://westlakecharter.com/wave/volunteer-hours/or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note: signing in and out at the office does NOT log your volunteer hours.
Fireworks Booth: You can also get started on your hours for next year and help WCS raise money! WAVE is once again hosting a fireworks booth this summer. We have a NEW LOCATION and we need your help to make it as successful as possible. Our stand will now be located at 3501 Del Paso Road in the Walgreens parking lot facing El Centro. Please click HERE to see what days and times are available.
Some last thoughts:
Friday journals--We did not get a chance to write in our Friday journals yesterday due to assessments. We have a couple more to finish up on Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure your explorer is well rested, nourished, and equipped with a growth mindset! We are almost done with 2nd grade testing! Yay!
Fidget Spinners--Please do not bring them to school. They are not allowed at recess due to loss and theft and several students are not using them in a productive way in the classroom. Thank you for your support!
Moving--If you would like to help me pack boxes in preparation for our move to the new campus, I will be in my classroom on June 15th from dusk until dawn. I also welcome any volunteers who would like to help during the school day from here on in. Thanks so much!
That's all for now!
Have a great weekend and week!
