Where: The Westlake Cafeteria.
Who: Men in 5th Grade and up!
THIS Friday, February 23rd, we are hosting our annual Men’s Prayer Breakfast. This is an incredible opportunity for fathers, extended family members, and friends to join in and experience what makes Westlake different: the power of God at work within us. We know that as a school we cannot function without the power of God through prayer. That is why we set aside many opportunities throughout our school year dedicated to prayer.
Food will again be provided by Fred’s Diner (right here in Grayslake!). While these events are always free, we would welcome a donation of any kind to help cover some of the cost of the food. We will have a small donation box available in the cafeteria for your convenience.
Please be sure to fill out the registration below to let us know you’ll be attending and how many guests you’re planning to bring along. We want to make sure we have plenty of food available for everyone.
From the Desk of Dr. Healan:
Each winter since I have been at Westlake, I have taken an evening to share my heart about Christian education in general and Westlake in particular with our parents. This year that meeting, What’s Up @ Westlake LIVE, will be held on Tuesday evening, January 30, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. During the meeting I will talk about challenges we face, the progress we are making, and new initiatives we are considering for the future. You’ll have an opportunity to connect with our teachers and meet other parents of Westlake. See below for a list of some of the topics to be covered.
Childcare will be provided by our upper classmen. Please let us know if you need childcare for this event by registering here. If you have any questions please call the office at 847-548-6209.
This is a meeting you won’t want to miss! Every student who has a parent in attendance receives one extra dress down day. Students will need to redeem their pass in the office on the day of their choosing. So, mark your calendars now.
A few of the topics to be discussed are as follows:
Take a few moments and spread some Christmas cheer! Each year, as part of the fundraising for our Senior Mission Trip, we offer our Merry Messages to our students and families. For just $0.50 per message, you can write a sweet tiding to that special someone and we’ll include a candy cane to be delivered on Tuesday, December 12th throughout the school day. These Merry Messages are only able to be delivered to Kindergarten – 12th grade (sorry, we can’t accommodate Pre-S/K).
Just below are the order forms and the Merry Message sheets. You’ll need to download the attachment, print it up, then bring it all with you to the office with your payment. If you’d like the ease of filling out the order form online instead of hand-writing your note, please feel free to do so, just remember you still need to stop in to pay for your messages.
All payments need to be made to the office by the beginning of the day on Monday, December 11th. Feel free to pay by cash or check, but bring exact change if you’re paying by cash – our elves don’t carry change.
If you’re wanting to print and hand-write your order, please print one of each of the attachments, fill them out, and bring the completed order and message to the office along with your payment:
MERRY MESSAGES ORDER FORM
If you’d like to do your ordering online, please fill out the form below completely, then be sure to bring in your payment (your message will not be delivered if payment is not received by Monday, December 11th before school). If you’d like to send more than one Merry Message, you’ll need to fill out the form multiple times. (Only one message per entry).
Here is one family’s story of how they were impacted by Westlake’s tuition assistance program.
Our loving God continues to meet the daily needs of Westlake through the generosity of His people. As our school began another year our student body was a bit smaller, but the need of our Westlake family had grown. Westlake Christian Academy awarded $550,000 in Tuition Assistance this past spring and summer. An increase of 10% from last year. In doing so:

Pajama Day: The comfiest day of the year! Bring a stuffed animal or ”blankie,” but be sure to stay awake in class!

The Lake County Health Department will conduct Vision and Hearing Screenings at Westlake Christian Academy the morning of Tuesday, November 14, 2017. This is to follow up on the communication sent home with your child.
The Health Department does charge for this service, but it is the most cost-effective way to meet the IL state requirement that hearing and vision screening be provided annually for children:
|PS/PK||$4||Hearing & Vision ($2 each hearing & vision screen)|
|2nd||$10||Hearing & Vision ($5 each hearing & vision screen)|
|Students with an IEP||$10||Hearing & Vision ($5 each hearing & vision screen – All students must receive screenings|
We are asking parents to send in payment for this mandatory screening by Friday, November 10 or Monday, November 13, in an envelope with your child’s name and grade.
Note: students who wear glasses are exempted from vision screening.
