Principal's Corner

Principal's Corner - December 2019

As I begin my fifth year at West Side Elementary, I reflect on the passing of another year and the promise of a new year, I start to look back at all of the wonderful changes and additions our school has experienced over the past five years. In addition to several excellent teachers and staff members retiring, we have had lots of great new faculty and staff join our West Side family! We became a Leader in Me school, where we work with each child to help him or her discover their inner greatness and become a leader.  Our school has become a Professional Learning Community as we become focused on student learning. We have renovated student restrooms and painted hallways, exterior doors, the gym, the cafeteria, the roof, several classrooms, the front office, and added new inspirational quotes and a new mascot painting in the gym, with the help of our PTO. We have added a new digital sign and security cameras to protect our students. Finally, we have added lots of new classroom technology tools to help our students achieve academic excellence, including Promethean boards in every classroom, Elmo digital projectors in every classroom, new laptop computers, a new wireless network, Chromebooks for every student in grades 3-5, and IPads for every student in grades PreK-2. We have a new lower grades playground, while adding new basketball goals to the upper grades playground.  I am thrilled to continue leading our school in 2020, and look forward to working with you and your child(ren) at West Side Elementary. 


Happy New Year!

Robert Mountjoy
