Staff Profile

I am excited to partner with you and your child for this academic school year! I strive to create an inclusive environment for all students, and I am committed to adapting my teaching style, as necessary, to accommodate the varied learning styles of all of my students. I moved to Colorado from Iowa with my husband, last year. When I’m not in the classroom you can find me drinking coffee, hiking, shopping, or crafting.

Care Packages for Deployed Airman

Hello Families, 

This year during Kindness Week, we are extending our Kindness Activities and our lessons about Empathy all the way to United States Military currently deployed in the Middle East. We are asking for donations to send to about 300 Airmen as a way to share our gratitude and spread a little joy. Please consider sending any of the following items to school with your students:
Lotion
body wash
chapstick
head lights or book lights
mio energy drops
beef jerky
protein bars
sunflower seeds
nuts
ground coffee.
Please be sure to label them as "Military" so they are not confused with teacher appreciation donations. Feel free to write a letter of appreciation from your family, also! We appreciate YOU!

Gift Wrapping Fundraiser

Westgate Juniors and Seniors are hosting a Gift Wrapping Fundraiser! If you need your holiday gifts wrapped and want to help a great cause then stop by Westgate from 2:30pm-4:30pm Friday, December 3rd or Friday, December 10th to have your gifts wrapped by our high schoolers. All proceeds will be going towards their service trips in the Spring. Seniors are going to Thailand this May and every dollar counts. You can sign up using this link - https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0d4faba62baaf94-gift. We will also accept walk-ups but you may have to wait. All gift wrap, bags, bows, and ribbon have been previously used, but in good condition and have been donated by Westgate staff. We are doing our best to make gift wrapping as environmentally friendly as possible! Email Mrs. Valenza at [email protected] with any questions.
