From Head of School
Lacey Scadden
I hope this letter finds you well!

This week the staff has been focusing on kindness and inclusiveness so the wellbeing of all students is being addressed. Focusing on social emotional learning is our next school wide initiative that we will be implementing this month.

We also have an exciting opportunity to partner with Boys and Girls Club to provide after school care and remote learning care at West! We are asking for feedback in a short survey.

Please let me know if you have any questions, concerns or celebrations!

Items are easy to open, heat and consume, even for a small child. To participate in this program please email the number of children in your household to
