• Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year: Home of the Wild Cats!  Our theme this year is “On the Road to Success…”

    Dear Wild Cats Family,

    As principal of West Wind Computer Science Magnet School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and playground, filling them both with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to meet the needs of each and every child here at West Wind.

    Our staff has been working throughout the summer preparing for the start of the school year.   Our office and custodial staff are doing an excellent job preparing for everyone’s return.  They have worked hard to ensure our school is clean, safe, and beautiful when our students return on Tuesday, August 15th.  Thank you to our amazing office staff for ensuring our students and staff have what they need as we start the school year.

    As we start the new school year, we look forward to partnering with you to create an environment that is conducive to learning and growth. One of the keys to a successful school year is communication and we are excited to be using Parent Square as our main way to communicate with you.  You will be able to send and receive important school information through Parent Square.  Please be sure to have your Parent Square account ready for use.  If you need assistance, please contact the front office and they will be happy to help you.

    West Wind Computer Science Magnet School is dedicated to preparing students to be 21st century learners.  We are very proud to be continuing our Code to the Future program where our students are taught coding skills from TK-5th grade as part of our dedication to preparing our students for the future.  Our standards-based curriculum and instruction is designed to engage and challenge students throughout the school year.

    Over the next few weeks, we will begin sending out important school information to help you and your family prepare for the new school year.  We are excited to see our returning families and to welcome our new families to the West Wind school community.

    If you are looking for ways to partner with us, we have many ways parents/guardians can help. Please consider joining one or more of the following committees:

    • School Site Council (SSC)
    • English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)
    • African American Advisory Committee (AAAC)
    • Parenting Partners Group
    • We are working to get our PTA up and running this year.  Please let us know if you are interested in being a part of PTA.  Be on the lookout for important dates for PTA.  There are a few steps that we are working on in order to get our PTA back up and running.

    Mission Statement: West Wind Elementary School is committed to educational excellence, empowering all young people to reach their full potential. Our school, in partnership with the community, will prepare students for the future as responsible citizens and lifelong learners.


    Sincerely,                                  Sincerely,
