Westport Middle School Newsletter
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Wildcat Students:
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! This is an exciting time for Westport Community Schools. While there has been a lot of change within the district, it is extremely thrilling to see the opening of a brand new building and the reformation of Westport Middle School! I am ecstatic to be working alongside the families and staff of Westport Middle School in supporting the educational, social, and emotional needs of students in Grades 5-8.
The mission of the Westport Middle School is to educate all students to become 21st century learners, to seek and value knowledge, and to emerge as productive citizens in a global community. I hold all students to high standards for their individual success and commitment to the school’s mission statement while fostering an inclusive Wildcat community. Education is a collaborative effort between families and the school community, and open communication is critical for a student’s success. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns regarding your child(ren).
On behalf of the entire Westport Middle School administration and staff, I wish everyone a happy and healthy school year. Go Wildcats!
