A CALIFORNIA DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL
Welcome back to the 2014-2015 school year at Westwood Elementary School. We are excited for another great year with our hard working students and staff who are very dedicated to the success of all children. My name is David Ramirez and I am beginning my 20th year with MDUSD as a teacher and administrator. I look forward to meeting new families as well as welcoming back those who are already a part of the wonderful Westwood community.
Our vision is to create and maintain a safe environment that ensures every member of the school community reaches their highest, individual level of academic achievement as determined by state and national standards. The staff is working with the new common core standards to meet the needs of our diverse community and is committed to helping each child reach their hightest individial potential. We are excited to continue the work we do with your children.
At Westwood, we recognize the importance of educating as a team. We value the caring, ongoing collaborative relationship that exists between Westwood and the community. Our students benefit tremendously by the involvement of all. We welcome you and invite you to please join in our many activities. Westwood encourages parents to help in the classrooms and play an active role in the school community which includes being a part of our fabulous Parent Faculty Club. Together we can and will make a difference for all our students.
