Congrats Miss Fletcher!

It is with happiness and sorrow to announce that Miss Caroline Fletcher has been appointed as Assistant Principal at Swift Creek Elementary School.  She has been an essential part of our school’s administrative team over the last two years as she has helped guide our school towards making a difference.  However, we know that her deep curriculum knowledge, understanding of effective interventions, and strong work ethic will guide Swift Creek in a positive manner.

Miss Fletcher will begin her work at Swift Creek starting next week Monday, April 27.  Her position as Assistant Principal here at West Lake Elementary will be left vacant for the remainder of this school year.  In the meantime, Mr. Simons and Mrs. Marshall will continue to lead our school in the same positive direction that has been set.

Please feel free to contact Mr. Simons or Mrs. Mrs. Marshall if you have any questions.

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.

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.
