January 27, 2020 | WE-Side Contests Open To All Students, Families & Staff

The following message was sent to all staff and families on January 27, 2020. If you did not receive this message, please contact

Good morning and welcome back, Westside students and families!

One of the primary goals of Westside Community Schools is to be open and honest about doing all we can to make sure every student, staff member, and visitor feels welcome, appreciated, and supported throughout our school district. WE-SIDE has a staff advisory council that has been established to help work on this important initiative.

We look forward to getting past COVID-19 and being able to engage many others, including students, more staff, parents, and community. We look forward to various committees working on a curriculum audit to ensure cultural awareness and fairness, more professional development, more inclusive practices, more grade level programming for students about the importance of respect of all others, and much more as we plan for our exciting future. With that, we encourage you and your family to take a look at the attached flyer with details on some great contests taking place throughout our District in February! We are sponsoring poetry, photography, and creative video contests with prizes for winners!

Bottom line, we want EVERYONE within our organization, regardless of age, skin color, religion, home address, socio-economic status, gender, beliefs, etc., to feel great about being part of Westside Community Schools.

A mindset of “WE” is the key!

Thank you, and have a great rest of your week!
