Principal's Message

Back to School 2021

 

Welcome back to school! We are grateful for the growth which we experienced as we supported each other through a couple of difficult school years. The Heart of the Lion beats strong at West Elementary as our students, parents, and faculty faced new and intimidating challenges with courage and resilience. Despite obstacles due to COVID-19, our students were able to demonstrate some of the largest amounts of academic growth we've seen in recent years. We hope to build on this success and continue looking and moving up!

 

We will accomplish this by developing a growth mindset in our students and staff and by implementing best practices that align with student-centered learning. To learn more about these initiatives, follow the links below:

 We understand that there may be many questions and/or concerns in this fluctuating time, but believe this provides us an opportunity to learn from and about each other, so that we might be able to attend a school that provides a safe, positive, and effective learning experience for everyone.
