  Teaching the Mind…Reaching the Heart

Westlake Christian School, founded in 1995 by the congregation of Palm Harbor United Methodist Church, is a college preparatory school serving children in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade.  At Westlake, we are “teaching the mind and reaching the heart” of the next generation.  We do so through Westlake’s rigorous curricula at all grade levels which prepares students to enter high school with a sound academic and spiritual foundation.  In the fall of 2012, Westlake was named a National Blue Ribbon School.  Westlake Christian School is fully accredited by the Florida Kindergarten Council, the Florida Council of Independent Schools, and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/AdvancED.

Annie Jr. Debuts Next Week!annie flyer

 We are looking forward to our spring musical, Annie Jr., slated for April 19th and 20th at 7 p.m. This musical is based on the popular comic strip and adapted from the Tony Award-winning Best Musical, with a beloved book and score, by Tony Award-winners, Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, Annie Jr. features everyone's favorite little redhead in her very first adventure. With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

 Plan to attend and leave with a song in your heart as "The Sun'll Come out Tomorrow!"

Tickets are available in the school office. We will also sell them at the door.

Westlake’s Robotics Teams Compete at Robofest

Westlake competed in the regional Robofest completion Saturday, March 17th. Robofest is a festival of competitions that encourages students to have fun while learning principles of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

Westlake had 11 students comprising four teams in Robofest this year. These students were selected from those that have taken the Middle School “Introduction to Robotics” elective.

This year’s challenge was to engineer, construct and program a robot to autonomously (no remote controls allowed) collect tennis balls and place them in a designated receptacle. Our students used the LEGO Mindstrorms platform for their robots. The teams’ robots are currently on display in the school office. We’re proud of these competitors and how they represented Westlake! Congratulations to all!
