Wake County Public School System has launched a new electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” The paper flyers we have been sending home will now be sent electronically to your inbox. These eflyers can also be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button that has been placed on our school’s website. This “green” initiative will save our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs. On top of that, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.
Action is required for you to receive school flyers! Please visit peachjar.com to register.  By registering, you will get electronic flyers delivered right to your inbox and you will stay informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events! This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.

 Reading Program

“Get Your Groove on with a Good Book!”West Lake Elementary – Reading Program

This year only 62% of our students participated in the reading program and earned an award.  In addition, only 38% earned Gold.  It’s time to step it up West Lake and begin to “Get Your Groove on with a Good Book!”   We have set new criteria that can be reached by all students.

Mr. Simons is challenging us to have 90% of students earn an award.   He has also set the goal that anyone earning the gold award can join him in the gym for a dance party.
