Students at Westgate School will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs throughout the year. Please see the clubs being offered by teachers this year below. Students will have a chance in class to identify their top choices during the week of October 12-14, 2022. Our goal is to ensure that each student becomes a member of at least one club of their choice. Sincere thanks to our Parent Society who has provided funds to help teachers get things going. If you are interested in supporting the club as a parent volunteer, please reach out to the teacher sponsor of that club. We will be looking for materials to be donated by parents and will include these in our weekly updates.
