Principal's Corner

BEGINNINGS AND ENDINGS!
 
David Bowie sang about turning to face the strange ch-ch-changes.  As the end of this 10th anniversary school year approaches, I can confidently say that Westgate continues to turn towards building and growing something new each day.
 
The end of the year brings a mass of nervous energy, anticipation and expectations.  Every student at Westgate is experiencing the ending of one grade and looking toward the beginning of something new; especially our graduating seniors! 
 
But exciting ch-ch-changes aren’t just for the students, over the summer break changes will be happening inside our building. The learning spaces are getting a makeover to include new furniture and a fresh color and coat of paint.  I invite you to a sneak preview when you come to Back to School Night on August 2nd. 
 
One thing that does not change is our commitment to focus our educational programming on the whole child – Mind, Body and Community.   We are looking to you as partners in your child’s education to help us in these endeavors.
 
​​​​​​​Thank you for the partnership between home and school, which is so important. We appreciate all that you do every day for our school and our children!
 
I would like to take a moment to express how grateful I am to be leading such an incredible community of students, families & staff. It has been an amazing year that would not be possible without your support and dedication.  I am excited to see the changes the future will bring.
 
Have a safe and fun-filled summer! See you next school year!
 
Warm Wishes,
 
Sharon Collins
