IMPORTANT NOTICE:
School to Reopen Monday, December 11

 

Supt. Cheryl Hildreth sent an automated call to all families and staff on Friday to confirm that school will reopen on Monday.  This decision was based on improved air quality and the lifting of mandatory evacuations that impacted our school communities.

 

The safety of our students and employees is always our top priority. District crews worked this weekend to install new air filters at the closed schools and ensure that facilities are ready for teaching and learning to resume. However, we may continue to limit outdoor activities until air quality returns to normal levels. Please visit lausd.net for updated information and on-going resources for our students and families. 

 

We realize that this has been a trying time for our families and employees. We are very grateful for your cooperation and understanding and look forward to seeing you back at school again on Monday.

Our Community School


Westwood Charter School is an inclusive, child-centered environment where children feel safe to take risks. It is a community dedicated to educating the whole child. Our students are actively engaged in learning through a curriculum that is both developmental and experiential. Our students are challenged to construct knowledge through meaningful interactions with each other and the world and are agents of change as they embrace their connections to the local and global community. Westwood Charter School is an affiliated charter and a member of the Los Angeles Unified School District and a California Distinguished School. It has been a charter school since July 26, 1993.

Seeking Contributions for the Westwood Charter Multicultural Week Museum December 11-15

 

Westwood Charter's Multicultural Week will be December 11th-15th. In addition to the classroom "feast" and parent presentations, the library is transformed into a "museum" featuring items contributed by Westwood Charter families over the year. These items include a wide range of objects from pieces of traditional clothing, to statues, to small books, etc. The items are arranged by country of origin and all classrooms have the opportunity to tour the museum during their library time.

 

We are seeking new contributions for the museum this year. Please consider donating an object to the museum that reflects your family's origins/visits/culture. These items will be kept permanently at Westwood Charter and displayed each year in the museum. Although children are discouraged from handling the items, please don't contribute anything that is extremely fragile or expensive. Please include a tag or sign with the object indicating your family's name and the origin of the item, which will be included in the display.

 

If you have an item to donate, please bring it to the office (preferable in a plastic bag with the item/sign) and a place it in the black plastic bin we have put there for the multicultural museum. We are accepting donations all next week (Dec. 4-8) If you want your item to be included, be sure to drop it off by next Friday, December 8th so it can be included in the museum.

 

Please feel free to email us with any questions. 

 

Thanks,

Angelike Dexter (angeliked@gmail.com) and Beth Glenn-Mallouk (bethaglenn@hotmail.com)
