Principal's Message

Our first few weeks are already behind us! Everyone on campus has been focused on building strong classroom communities in which rules and expectations are clearly communicated, and procedures and routines are rehearsed to establish safe, supportive, and joyful learning environments. When students enjoy being at school, they are more fully engaged in the instruction and more willing to take risks in their learning. As part of this process, our teachers are facilitating Morning Meetings each morning after announcements. During Morning Meeting everyone in the classroom gathers in a circle for approximately 20 minutes for a greeting and other community-building activities.

Many of our teachers spent time over the summer expanding their own knowledge of best teaching practices in order to provide high-quality educational opportunities to your children. We are excited to see students actively participating in lessons that are designed to inspire Critical- thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, and Communication – the 4 C’s of Common Core instruction which we believe will set our students up for success in the 21st century. In addition, our 3rd-5th grade students will soon be taking advantage of new Chromebooks in the classroom, which will be used to expand their access to academic content, and their ability to share their learning through the use of various technological resources. 

Soon, you may start hearing your children talking about the “power of ‘yet’”, as we explore the concept of developing a Growth Mindset in our learners. For a quick tutorial about what we mean, I encourage you to click here.

Our Westwood community is amazing, and I am excited to work with you this school year to continue to improve the educational experience for our Wildcats!

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Klinkner, Principal

Attendance is critical to student success. One day out is equivalent to approximately 2 days of lost instruction. Keep your children at home if they are truly ill, otherwise, please make your best effort to get your children to school on time, every day! Start good habits early!
