Welcome to West County Elementary, Home of the Bulldogs! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our district and stay informed about what is happening at West County!
WCE takes great pride in creating an atmosphere where students can learn in a caring and creative environment. Together our staff encourages students to engage in a lifelong love of learning. As we focus on student achievement we will provide a variety of academic and educational experiences that promote student growth and learning throughout the year. In our team environment, teachers will regularly collaborate, analyze data, plan instruction, and develop common assessments to ensure student achievement is attained throughout each grade level.
During the upcoming school year I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s learning. Parent involvement plays a critical role in our school’s success. Ways to support and increase your child’s academic success include:
o Make attendance a PRIORITY including limiting tardiness and absences.
o Check Parent Portal regularly to stay informed of student progress.
o Communicate often with your child’s teacher.
o Read with your child at least 20 minutes a day.
o Limit television and social media, encourage outside play.
o Review the school day with your child.
Our vision for your child is to celebrate academic successes with contagious enthusiasm and dedicated partnerships, creating unity and inspiration in a safe learning environment. We strive to have a culture of excellence. We want the best for our students and expect nothing less from them.
Education is a powerful tool and as an educational community, we must jointly work together to ensure that all of our students have every advantage as they grow into successful and productive students in our growing Bulldog community.
Together we will continue to engage, challenge and inspire our students!
-Mrs. Laura Basler, Principal
