Dear Westlake Family,

As you know, the superintendent's office met with your governance council to outline the process the superintendent will use to select the permanent principal of Westlake High School. The next step in the process requires feedback from the school and community in reference to the characteristics needed in a WHS principal. The Area Superintendent and his team will be hosting two focus groups in order to gather feedback to inform the superintendent's decision. The first focus group will consist of the WHS Student Government Association, and the second group will consist of the WHS School Governance Council, PTSA President, and PTSA Vice President. In order to capture as much information as possible the Fulton County Talent office has also created a survey that allows all parents to submit their opinions as it relates the qualities and characteristics needed to effectively lead WHS.

The link will be on the school's website this week and will be open until midnight January 28, 2015. There will be a separate link for each language. Your input is important, so we appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey.

Below you will find the link:

The Lion's Pride 


Dear Westlake Family,

Please help me in congratulating Dr. Warren, our Communities In Schools (CIS) representative.  She has received the National Unsung Hero Award.  Communities In Schools started in Georgia over 30 years ago and is now the nation's leading dropout prevention organization, serving over one million youth in 25 states and the District of Columbia. Dr. Warren's work at Westlake has been recognized as a model for all CIS schools.  We are very fortunate to have her at Westlake High School.  Please watch the below video to get a small glimpse of the wonderful work that Dr. Warren does with our students.


Go Lions!

Dear Westlake Family,

Please help me in congratulating this year's Posse Scholarship winners!

Founded in 1989 by Deborah Bail, Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. Posse extends to these students the opportunity to pursue personal and academic excellence by placing them in supportive, multicultural teams—Posses—of 10 students. Posse partner colleges and universities award Posse Scholars four-year, full-tuition leadership scholarships. Through this program, extraordinary students with leadership potential have the opportunity to continue their education at some of the top ranked colleges and universities in the country. The students that are selected form a 'Posse' and are provided with extra supports, and end up graduating from these selective colleges with a very high success rate.

Please congratulate this year's Westlake Posse Scholars:

Jazzi-Blue Baker, Syracuse University

Shirtoria Smith, The College of Wooster

Alejza Metts, Texas A&M University


Thank you to our counselors, Ms.Ogle, teachers and parents for investing so much in these three students in order for them to reach this level. What extraordinary children we have!


Go Lions!
