Westwood Primary School
Believes in YOUR Child

Westwood Primary School Core beliefs to the Westwood community

The Alhambra School District Superintendent, Dr. Karen Williams, has guided all school principals to share their core commitments about students and learning.  As principal of Westwood Primary School, I am proud to share my core commitment as well as the core commitments of the entire Westwood Staff.

September - Attendance Awareness Month


 
Did you know that missing just 10 percent of the school year in the early grades can leave many students struggling throughout elementary school? Or that by sixth grade, missing only that much school is strongly linked to course failure and even eventually dropping out of high school?  That’s just 18 days of the school year or two to three days per month. Every school day counts, and everyone can make a difference.

 

 
Week of September 22nd
EXPRESSion Project

Alhambra School District’s EXPRESSion Project

Express your thoughts about the Alhambra School District. Can you do it in seven words? Then join our EXPRESSion Project by sharing your experiences, thoughts, concerns, triumphs, or beliefs about the district and express it in seven words.
 
Here’s two of my own EXPRESSIONS…

1) High quality Instruction + High Expectations = ALHAMBRA SCHOOLS!
2) Believing ALL students can ACHIEVE the Impossible!!!
 
 
Your Attendance Counts
 
FACT:  Every 26 seconds, a student drops out of school.  By 9th grade, missing 20% of the school year is a better predictor of dropping out than test scores.
 
If you think on day out of school is just a day, think again!  The days add up quickly.  The Get Schooled website has developed an “Attendance Count Calendar,” which you can use to see the effects of missing school based on the number of days your child is not is school.  The results just might surprise you!
 

Congratulations to Ms. Jennifer Hollenbeck for being named as a Rodel Semi-Finalist Exemplary Teacher!  WooHoo, we are so proud of you!!! 




 
Mark you Calendars…
