Welcome to Westside Elementary School. We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners! As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their highest potential. We believe that all of us – the school, parents and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all of our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills. This is necessary for students to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

Parent Action Team (P.A.T)
Parent input is a vital component of the Title I Program. We invite parents and family members to join the Parent Action Team (PAT), which meets twice per year.
The purpose of the PAT is to develop and revise Title I documents such as the Family Engagement plan and the School-Parent compact. Parent suggestions are always welcomed and encouraged throughout the school year and from the Parent Satisfaction Survey every spring.
Your input also guides the planning of the workshops and activities for the next school year, which we include in our school's Family Engagement Plan. We gladly welcome your input and ideas!
Join us in the WES Cafe on October 4, 2018 @ 5:00pm and January 8, 2019 @ 5:00pm
