Welcome to our Information & Technology Center Home Page!

Thank you to all of the students, teachers and parents that supported the HOWL book club this year.  WE READ many interesting thought provoking books that inspired questions and conversations.  The Reading Across Broward log sheets and the Sunshine State Votes have been collected.  Thanks to everyone that discovered treasures in reading and helped to build our community of readers at Westglades. We will have information about summer reading soon.  Visit this site and www.westgladesmiddle.com soon.
Thank you,
Mrs. Haneski

Westglades had a great day getting his fast paced, inspiring message.
The Vitro family donated the funds to purchase this wonderful floor globe that resides in the Media Center. They were able to give our students a special resource that will be used by our students for years.
