Dear Wildcat Families:
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am proud to say we are an “A” school!! I am privileged to be the principal of Westchester Elementary School and excited to be part of a wonderful community. Our theme this year is “You Be You”, all students are encouraged to be the best version of themselves. I am committed to ensuring we provide a world-class education where students can grow in a safe and secure learning environment, become critical thinkers, creative problem solvers.
This year, our entire district is committed to creating a safe and secure learning environment. Please understand that this means our campus will be less accessible. There are many important safety updates/reminders in this newsletter. We know that this may be inconvenient at times and that new protocols may delay arrival and dismissal. Please be patient; our intent is to continue to improve upon your children's safety. A smile and reassuring affirmation to your child will help ease any anxiety regarding these enhanced protocols. Additionally, please support our efforts by discussing the importance of our emergency drills. All students will engage in a monthly Code Red drill. The purpose is to properly train our students and staff on what to do in an emergency. These monthly drills will complement our mandatory fire drills. Our front office and classroom buildings have several safety upgrades scheduled to occur in the upcoming months. Additional details will be shared as the improvements occur.
Once again, it’s a great pleasure to welcome you to this school year. Stay informed and up-to-date by checking out our website, Facebook page, and following us on Twitter. Be sure to look for upcoming scheduled events on the school calendar and important updates!
My entire Support Staff is here to help and answer any questions. I’m looking forward to a successful school year!
Sincerely Your Proud Principal,
