Principal's Message

I want to thank everyone for a wonderful start to this new year.  We are underway with a consistent routine.  West Middle is dedicated to building relationships with our students, parents, and community.  Our current enrollment is almost 600 students.  We are excited as we begin a new school year with our Chromebooks in hand and energy in our step. Our Vision for West Middle is that we are Student centered, Teacher guided, Explored learning, Parent partnership, Successful transition-STEPS.  As you can see, our vision, along with our mission, is that we offer relevant learning experiences to develop the whole child through teacher guidance, parent partnership, and global exploration. As partners for your child's education, please let us know when we can be of assistance to you.  We want to keep the lines of communication open.  As our faculty and staff work to move your child toward a positive transition to the high school, we ask that you support us by having your child to school before the tardy bell, talk to your child about his or her day, ask about homework and keep track of grades on PowerSchool.
