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 3-5 who exhibit good behavior, maintain their grades, and can be reliable to participate in the News Program on campus prior to the morning bell.
Students and Families can watch our Broadcast live via Stream. Tune in each morning at 8:40am

Parents, Friends, and Families. Our 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.
SUNSHINE STATE READERS
The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Program is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 8. The purpose of the SSYRA Program is to encourage students to read independently for pleasure and to read books that are on, above, and below their reading level in order to improve their reading fluency. Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation. Each year (15) Titles are selected.
The list of books for 2021-2022 can be found here
