Building A Better World One Student At A Time!
Upcoming Events
 
  Welcome to Westwood Primary School
     
  2006 and 2012 A+ School of Excellence
   
Where Children Learn and Grow!


 

Week of October 20th
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.

Westwood Primary School Core beliefs to the Westwood community

deserve and have a right to a highly effective teacher

each and every year they are in school.” –Lori Weiss, Principal
