Executive Director's Corner

Dear Families and Community Members,
This month’s advocacy theme is ‘The Greater Good’ and students are reflecting on what community means.  And so am I.
 
The words are easy to say but the meaning is complex because it’s about people and our connections to each other.
I am grateful that members of the Westgate community work together to support students across the spectrum of social, health and academic needs, also known as whole child.  Because we know that if a student scores in the top percent on standardized tests, gets excellent grades at school and is academically successful but can’t manage their emotions, practice conflict resolution or handle stress, it impacts both the student and the community.
 
The partnerships between students, families, schools, and the community are essential to helping students achieve their maximum potential. 
 
I’d like to take this time to recognize the support we’ve received from the Westgate Community and thank students, staff, and families for your willingness to collaborate. 
 
When schools partner successfully with families and the community, we are contributing to The Greater Good. 
 
In Service, 
Sharon Collins 
Executive Director, Westgate Community School 
A small school with BIG ideas!
