Announcing The WAKE UP and READ
Book Drive!

Attention, all West Lake Wallabies: we need your new and gently used children’s books!

From February 1 – February 25, WAKE up and Read will collect new and gently-used books for children ages birth-12.

West Lake Wallabies can make a difference in our community just by donating books!  Please clear your cluttered shelves of books your kids have outgrown, or bring in favorites of your own, so that we can help Wake county children grow up loving books.

Look for the book collection bins in the main lobby – and please help us fill them! To learn more about the book drive click here BookDriveAnnouncementLetter

“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.
