At the end of every year it is always such a sad but exciting time. Sad to see our 5th graders move onto middle school, sad to see students move away, and even sad not seeing all of our kiddos walking the hallways or in their classes. It is also very exciting and rewarding at the same time. Excited for what’s next? Excited to see our students grow over the year, as well as rewarding to see all of the things our staff and students accomplished over the year. We had many ups and downs throughout the school year, but I couldn't be more proud of all of our staff and students.
This was a great year and I can’t believe it is over. It felt like a normal year again with field trips, book fairs, West Fest, and so much more. I am very thankful for our WSO and everyone that always stepped up and helped make all of our events such a success. When I became principal here three years ago and was told West is Best, I really wasn’t sure what that meant. It didn’t take long before I realized what a special place West is and the wonderful staff, amazing students, and great parents it has.
It is definitely bittersweet thinking this is my last weekly blast being sent out to parents, but I want all of you to know that I have absolutely loved my time being a West Wildcat and getting to know all of your children. I want to thank you for always making me feel so welcomed, appreciated, and respected these past three years. I am extremely proud of everything we have accomplished and can’t wait to hear about the continued success here at West Elementary.
I wish all of you the best of luck and please know that West Elementary will always hold a special place in my heart.
