Dear Westgate Families,

The other day I had the opportunity to show visitors the work we are doing here at Westgate. They asked me to spend some time on the points of pride I have about the school. They also asked me to keep it to five minutes, which I knew was going to be a challenge. 

I am so proud of how our staff partners with families, especially in the past year with the pandemic. Students had access to Chromebooks, school supplies and, for those who needed it, access to our Food and Clothing Pantry which is run on an entirely volunteer basis. 

I am so proud of our teacher’s commitment to meeting each child where they are academically. All of us are relieved to be back to in-person learning. We have worked hard to implement the Expeditionary Learning resource which has students reading, writing and discussing topics that are interesting to them. We have learned about how kids around the world go to school, frogs and baseball great, Jackie Robinson. 

I am also proud of our work supporting students with their socio-emotional needs. We spend time each morning in a time we call CREW, where we check in with each other, set goals for the day and build our toolboxes to be resilient, try hard things, and be kind. 

Lead, Love and Learn are the beliefs that act as our North Star. We will continue to build our community so that those things are possible for all children who come to Westgate!
