Curriculum:  Westlake Middle School recognizes the importance of providing all students with coherent and relevant curriculum.  The curriculum will be:
  • Sequenced and aligned vertically and horizontally to ensure academic growth from grade to grade and subject to subject.
  • Implemented using department-identified essential learning and pacing charts for each subject and grade level.
  • Utilized to establish and maintain articulation with feeder elementary and secondary schools.
Parents and Guardians:  Westlake Middle School recognizes the importance of establishing effective partnerships with parents and community members.  Parents commit to:
  • Participate and take an active interest in student's academic and social success.
  • Communicate with the school and teams of teachers on a consistent and respectful basis.
  • Support student's extended learning by:
    • Establishing a consistent schedule for completing work.
    • Setting up a consistent, organized place for work to be completed.
    • Encouraging, motivating and prompting their student to complete his or her work on time.
    • Help prioritize and monitor student's activities and provide appropriate focus on school work.

In the interest of keeping our school safe and secure, Westlake Middle School has joined 20 other schools in the Adams 12 school district in purchasing the Raptor Technologies V-Soft visitor tracking system. This equipment scans a visitor's state driver's license/identification card and compares it to a law enforcement database that consists of registered sex offenders from 48 states including Colorado. Should a visitor be identified from the data base, school personnel and security will be immediately notified.  When entering Westlake Middle School, all visitors will be asked to present a state issued ID which will be scanned into the Raptor system. The ID is scanned for visitor's name, date of birth, and photo comparison with the law enforcement database.  Additional visitor data will not be gathered and no data will be shared with any outside company or organization.  The school will then print a name/visitor badge to be worn while visiting in the school.

      

    Parents - Infinite Campus is the student management system we use to manage teacher gradebooks, attendance, student schedules, etc. The system has a component called the "Parent Portal" that allows parents to see their student's grades LIVE at any time and on any given day. In order to access the portal, please download the Parent Portal Agreement form, complete it, sign it, and return it to the counseling office at WLMS. Upon receipt of the completed form, parents will be issued access information. Please use the following links to assist you as you learn to navigate the Parent Portal:  First Time User Information and Navigation Information.  Thank you!
