Vision

Westside teachers will meet the needs of each individual in a student-centered classroom by:

  • Encouraging a growth mindset

  • Maintaining high expectations through a hands-on, engaging rigorous curriculum for ALL students

  • Providing a safe, positive, and loving environment

  • Creating independent thinkers

Mission

Westside Elementary invests in the whole child academically, socially, and emotionally to prepare them for success in their everyday lives.

Announcements

  • Remember! The car rider line is a cell phone free zone!


  • When you drop your children off in the morning please make sure you are pulling all the way up to the car in front of you! Since you are screening your children at home you may give us a thumbs up and then your child may exit the car. They do not have to wait for a staff member to open the door for them! Hopefully, this will speed up our drop off. Car rider drop if will begin at 7:25.


  • Instruction begins at 7:40 and the tardy bell rings at 7:50. If you arrive past 7:50 please walk your child to the doors so you can sign them into the office.


  • 3-5 parents, your child is provided with 3 masks by the district! We are noticing that some bus riders are forgetting to bring their masks each day! Please remind your child to bring a mask for bus riders!


  • Parents will be able to come eat lunch with their child at our outdoor picnic area. Lunch times: 4th grade 10:30-11:00, 1st grade 11:00-11:30, 3rd grade 1:30-12:00, Kindergarten 12:00-12:30, 2nd grade 12:30-1:00, 5th grade 1:00-1:30


  • Please head over to our website to sign up for E-Notes. This will allow you to receive the weekly parent newsletter by email.

Over the next few weeks, in counseling class we will be talking about Growth Mindset. We will be discussing strategies on how to keep a growth mindset daily and things we can do when we aren’t having great days.


Below are images explaining what Growth Mindset is and how we as parents can encourage it at home!
