Westside School Confirmation

Hello All!

I hope that you all have had a fantastic summer! It was so great to get to hang out with most of you at the BBQ a couple weeks ago. I am really looking forward to the start of school this year.

We are 15 days away from September 1st, which is the day that half of your tuition is due ($2400). I know that there are a ton of factors that each of you are thinking through as you are getting prepared to come join us for the next year. I know that there is a lot of pressure as well. 

I wanted to send this e-mail out to open dialogue with each of about the progress you are making for this next year. 

If any of you have concerns, or if you're not sure how you're going to come up with the money, or if other life things are happening that make it very overwhelming, please let me know!

We are working hard on this end to finalize details of class schedule, mentor breakout, praxis assignments, and everything else associated with how your time will be filled this year. We want to make sure that we are planning correctly.

I look forward to hearing from each of you this week!

Thanks,

Weston Brock - Dean of Students

Student Instagram Meet

Hello Students,

I hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend!  Just as a reminder, the school pictures are next Tuesday the 14th at 11am and 3pm.  It will take no more than a half hour to get everyone's pictures taken.  If you have not already emailed me to sign up for one of those times, please do so by this Thursday!  If you do not sign up, you will be requested to personally connect with Joe Greer, the Westside Creative Project Manager, to set up a different time to have your picture taken.  Although that is an option, please try to make next Tuesday work as it is easier on Joe's busy schedule.

Your picture will be posted to the Westside School Instagram feed along with your answers to a few questions!  Please email me the responses, or turn them in when you come next Tuesday.  The questions are below:

Where are you from?

What Stream are you going to be a part of at Westside School?

How old are you?

What are some hobbies/things you enjoy doing?

What is your main vision/purpose in being part of Westside School?

Lastly, if you aren't following us on Instagram, look up schoolofmtw and follow us for school news and updates!

Thank you and see you soon!

Westside School Student BBQ

Hello Everyone!

I have been looking forward to writing this for awhile. I am excited for two reasons. First, this means that we have finished the application process. Second, we are actually able to get together and meet the group that will be making up the first year of this school!

This is your official invitation to join us for our first ever Westside School Student BBQ.

Who: This BBQ is for all the students and school staff.

When: Monday, July 27 @ 5pm

Where: Westside: A Jesus Church (next to the basketball courts)

Why: We want to bring everyone together to meet each other, pray together, eat together, and talk about what to expect going into the fall.

Cost: The price of admission is simply your attendance!

Please let us know by Monday, July 6 if you are going to be able to attend. While this is not required, we really hope that each of you can make it!

As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Thank you all so much,

Weston Brock - Dean of Students

Tuition Information

Dear Students,

I hope you have been doing well!  With the start of Westside School just a few months away, you will be receiving a few emails with more information about logistics for the school in the next few weeks.  This email is to notify you in regards of tuition and how you will be sending in payments.

I have included the link below to the Pure Charity website, which is the organization we will be using for our tuition payments and regulation.  A Jesus Church has partnered with Pure Charity for all of our fundraising for our missions trips.  You will notice that when you register for the Westside School Tuition (2015-2016) it will be noted as a "Trip".  Don't let this confuse you as it is just the terminology that Pure Charity uses for fundraising.  Our "Trip" is simply for paying tuition.  

Link to Pure Charity Registration: https://www.purecharity.com/westside-school-tuition/registrations/new?ticket_id=486

To pay, just click the link and follow the instructions on the page that comes up.  This is the page for our Westside School Tuition (2015-2016).  Under the "Trip Cost Guarantee", the tuition deadlines are listed with the payment amounts that are due on those dates.  You will be able to pay via checks or a credit card.  The information on how to send in a check is located on the checkout screen for your fundraiser, and I've included a link below with more info on this as well if there is any confusion.  Also note that the charge on your credit card will read as "PUR" in your bank transactions.  

Check Info: https://help.purecharity.com/hc/en-us/articles/204671828-Can-I-mail-a-check-instead-of-giving-online-

After you register, You will have your own profile where you can see how much money you have paid, as well as send links out if there is anyone who wants to help pay for part of your tuition through a donation.  If you have money that is donated to you in cash, just take it to the bank and receive a money order or check that you can then use to pay.  The link for receiving donations is below:
