PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Westmoor Learning Community,


I sincerely hope that our students take a well-deserved break from school next week. I am so very proud of our students and how they continue to recognize that what they are learning will matter in life now or in the future. I encourage each student to show up and do their best! Each student is important and valued and we care for all of them.


Relax, stay safe, and remember that your efforts to learn really does matter! We are Westmoor Strong!



Dream and Achieve,

Principal Grace Strickland
