Morning Announcements-Booster Bash

Good Morning and Happy Friday! 

Wow! What a week it's been raising funds for our school and getting excited for the Booster Bash!! We had a challenge last night for the Core that got the most new pledges. And the winner is... the Eagle Core!! Congratulations!!  You will receive an Ice Cream Sandwich at lunch. 

Speaking of challenges- Remember, we mentioned our school wide goals. If we raise $9,000 in profit then you will get to pick the music at lunch. And then we will unlock our next school wide incentive. All the way to try to raise our total goal of $18,000. We are 40% of the way to our school goal and we still have one more week of fundraising. 

To help us reach our school goal, we have a special weekend challenge. Any student who gets $30 in donations or sends 10 easy emailers will earn a bungee rocket this weekend. Just like the ones from the Pep Rally. On top of that- you will be able to bring them back and play an EPIC game at the Booster Bash event. 

And to make it EVEN better- if you get that $30 in new donations or send 10 new easy emails- not only will you get a bungee rocket, but you will also be entered into a raffle for a COTTON CANDY MACHINE!! That's right! You could win your own personal cotton candy machine!

Students, thanks for all your hard work getting donations so far for your school. Keep up the great work! 

Good Morning Students- 

We had an amazing weekend of donations for the Booster Bash. Thank you to the students that asked for donations this weekend! 

This weekend, students that earned $30 in donations or sent 10 easy emailers earned a Bungee Rocket. If you qualified for this you should receive your bungee rocket soon! Remember, start practicing your aiming skills with the bungee rocket at home- and bring the bungee rocket back for the booster Bash in order to participate in a game to win a grand prize! 

Any student who earned a Bungee Rocket over the weekend was also entered into a raffle for a Cotton Candy Machine.  The winner was a 6th grader in Grizzly Core!

We also have a pretty epic top core challenge coming your way! So far, the Eagle Core has been leading the way- but now each core has a fresh start to claim the title of "Top Core"!  The core that gets the most NEW pledges tonight AND Tuesday night will be able to SLIME some of their favorite teachers!! That's right- you heard us correctly- you will get to see your teachers get slimed (we are talking Nickolodean Slime)- if and only if you are the top core over the next two days. Let's see if anyone can rise up and take on the Eagle Core!  

Lastly, we have an update on our school goal. Remember, we are trying to raise $18,000 for our school. Right now, we are up to $9,200, which means that you have earned the right to pick music during lunch!! And you have unlocked our $12,000 challenge.

Remember, our Booster Bash is this Friday! That means you only have 4 more days to qualify for the Booster Bash. And you must have $60 in donations or send 20 easy emailers to attend the Booster Bash. This is going to be a super awesome day filled with cool inflatable activities, games with the Booster team, Gift card giveaways, more scrunchie giveaways, and Kona Ice will be available as well.

Last Thursday afternoon, in front of a cheering crowd of hundreds (well maybe not quite a hundred) Westlake held its THIRD annual National Geographic Bee! Competition was tough to start… with 10 dedicated and well-rehearsed students from 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. After many grueling hours of competition (well maybe not quite that long), the numbers dwindled down to just three. We are pleased to announce these stellar finalists. Congratulations and many kudos to our 3rd place finalist, Ruthie Thorpe, our 2nd place finalist Thomas Parameswaran, and last but not least, Westlake’s 2019 Geography Bee champion… wait for it…. Corbin Prokop.  Next, Corbin will be taking an online test in order to qualify for the state level competition! Rock on CORBIN!

Bully Prevention Month:

Today is a day that we often pretend to be something/someone that we are not. It’s silly and unique and fun. Let’s be as accepting tomorrow as we are today of those who are different than us. Unique. Those who are unusual and surprising. Let’s accept all people all the time. Find the courage to be kind.

Westlake Middle School encourages the opportunity for our school community to engage in the celebration of Halloween in a way that demonstrates the Westlake Way.  Please make sure your costume demonstrates "Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Invested" by not selecting costumes that may be considered insensitive to various races, genders, cultures, and religions.  Costumes that would violate the Student Dress Code will only be allowed if approved by an administrator prior to wearing the costume to school. For safety reasons, masks or makeup should not cover the face in a manner that makes the person unrecognizable.  Please see the poster in the cafeteria with the details of the Halloween Costume Guidelines for more information or talk with Dr. Heide, Mr. Weisbart, or Mr. Novotny.

We look forward to seeing your creativity with your costumes on Halloween!

Bully Prevention Month

Week 2: WHAT KINDNESS CAN YOU BRING TO OUR COMMUNITY?

To keep the power, bullies will often tell you not to “snitch”. That is a technique to keep you quiet so they can still be mean to you. Asking for help to get a kid to stop the meanness is not snitching. Respect yourself by speaking up and reaching out for support. You deserve to be respected at our school.

Week 2: WHAT KINDNESS CAN YOU BRING TO OUR COMMUNITY?

Tues, Oct 9: Our best friends are often our bullies. If you have a friend who is being rude to you, speak up for yourself, clarify how you expect to be treated and if that friend cannot be more positive with you then it is time to change friends. Kindness is speaking up for yourself with your friends. When friends decide to be mean or rude you have to decide whether you are going to go along with the crowd or stand up for what you believe in.

We have a special lady that has always wanted to read the morning announcements.  As this is her last day at Westlake after 12 years here...sniff sniff... we would

love to give her this opportunity.  See if you can figure out who this is....She is there for you when you need a bandaid.  Kids like to give her a hard time as she still uses

a flip phone and does not text...and she is always willing to go above and beyond to make your day.  She has worked for Westlake for 12 years but before that, she worked

at the Fire Department for 20 years.  She has even been a flight attendant. Westlake has truly been fortunate to have such a wonderful person in our building.  

Without further ado we would like to thank Ms. Cheryl Young-Beumer for sharing all her love and skills with us at Westlake.  You will certainly be missed. Best of luck in your retirement. Enjoy but please come back and see us.

Come check out the foyer as names will go up soon.  Remember every dollar counts for us to reach our goal.
