Principal's Message


Congratulations to all of the Elementary Students who completed their Summer Packets and were able to participate in the Summer Packet Party.  These students are pictured above.


Visit from Officer Brown:  We are always thrilled when Officer Brown pays us a visit.  The children love seeing him.  We all consider him a Rock Star here at Westside.



This month Westside will be focusing on the character trait RespectAccording to Webster’s New World Dictionary, Respect means “to feel or show honor or esteem for…” “to show consideration for…”  Talk with your child and discuss how they can  show respect toward themselves, others, and property?  Please share with your child the definition of respect and what it means to show respect.  Think about ways they can show respect at home.  Are they kind to a little brother or sister?  Does your child respect their toys and belongings?  When you see your child showing respect, be sure to compliment them. Let them know that you noticed them showing respect towards someone or something.


Camp Deposits:

Deposits for 6th graders who are going to Shady Creek are due September 15. The deposit amount is $110.

\Dress Code:

Please remember that students should dress in shorts that are fingertip length, pants with no holes, no sandals, no undergarments showing and clothing free from inappropriate language.  I am asking parents to consider similar guidelines when they visit school.  Clothing that displays undergarments and inappropriate language is not permitted for anyone at school. Thank you 



Please remember to pick up your students outside of the gate area.  Over 400 students are dismissed at 2:35.  This can cause a lot of congestion and confusion.  Thank you for your understanding.


Westside School is special because of you, your children and the dedicated staff.  Thank you for trusting your children to us on a daily basis.  They are the reason I am here and the best part about being a principal!  Thanks for all you do.

Mission Statement

 At Westside we believe in doing school activities together. Besides all school PE, we have all school Friday morning sing, and on Friday afternoons we all participate in a Friday activity. The sense of family and community is unmatched. If you take a walk around the campus, one of the things that will stand out the most is how recognizable the relationships are, the relationships between staff and students, staff and families, and staff with each other. For Westside staff and families, our school is their home away from home.
