 West Elementary Redbirds


Our Mission

           Students at West Elementary School will master the

core curriculum and develop skills in the areas of communication,

organization, and social interactions. Learning will be measured

through the use of standardized and curriculum based tests,

informal assessments, and data analysis. The learning community 

will provide resources and programs to maximize student achievement.

Help is needed for Mini-Art

Mini- Art is a special art class let by volunteers
 
Once a month volunteers teach each grade a special art lesson.This is an opportunity for students to receive some art education at school. Sally McClaine will be Mini-Art coordinator for both Gilson Brown and West but she needs lots of help.  She needs people who will teach the lesson for each grade and also other volunteers to help in other ways (passing out supplies, helping students, set up and clean up, etc).  The schedule is being formed now. There will be morning and afternoon times. You don't have to be an artist.  The lessons and supplies will be ready for you. Sally will also train anyone.  

Can you help? Contact Sally at bookahballs@gmail.com
