We have several programs that are coordinated out of the Media Center.
MORNING NEWS SHOW
Our Wildcat News Crew is comprised of students in Grades 4 and 5 who are self-directed, maintain good attendance, and can be reliable to participate in the News Program beginning at 8:15am each morning.
Students and families can watch our Wildcast News Broadcast live via Stream. Tune in each morning at 8:40am

HOW FAMILIES CAN BE INVOLVED WITH OUR LIBRARY
Students are always asking for new books and they fill out requests in our library. If you would like to donate a new book to the Westgate Library, here is our wish list on Amazon. We are always open to having parents/family members volunteer in the library as guest readers for our primary grades or to volunteer in our Makerspace.
We have a busy Makerspace in our library where students can explore hands-on learning activities. If you would like to be involved in programming for our Makerspace or have an idea, please reach out to our Media Specialist.
The District One-to-One Initiative is coordinated out of our library. If your student is having any technical issues with their laptop, please have them stop by the library before school. If you have any questions after-hours or would be interested in some specific family lessons on how to use some of the Digital Learning programs, please fill out a Family E-Coaching Request. The link is on our homepage.
Taking home a laptop is provided as an option for students in Grades 3-5, as long as families sign a Responsibility Form. Please review how how to take care of the device with your child.
