Dear Westside Family,


Thank you for an AMAZING 2019-2020 school year! We have had a wonderful year full of great learning experiences for our students and our families! Our students have truly exemplified what it means to "Lead, Grow, Inspire," each day! I am honored to be your principal and thankful for the opportunity to work alongside you each and every day! Stay Westside Strong and enjoy a beautiful summer with your family!


If you have time to revisit the video we started our year with, "The Danger of a Single Story," and reflect on how we are contributing to our school, family and children's stories each day! We continue to be reminded that we are all beautiful in our own way and we find beauty within our community and kids each and every day. With the many stories we bring, we make Westside the community it is today and what a beautiful community we are! Thank you for Leading, Growing, and Inspiring our world each day. Together we show our kids what beauty within a community is!


Hope to see you at our School's Out for Summer Parade! It should be a beautiful evening to kick off summer as a community!


With my sincerest gratitude,

Amanda Lillard



Westside Find Your Voice Virtual Talent Show: Take time to view our Virtual Talent Show, see below. Our individual acts were still able to perform while meeting social distancing guidelines! Thank you to Sarah Kumengi for thinking outside the box to make this happen!


Kinder/5th Virtual Graduation & Parade: Thank you to all the parents and teachers who came together to create a fun parade for our students. This special milestone was definitely an experience to remember and we had so much fun celebrating with you!!! We also want to thank Kirsten Medenwald, our librarian, for being the mastermind behind our virtual graduation ceremony. She jumped on this idea and worked so hard with our Kinder/5th grade teachers and graduation committee parents to make today a virtual success for our kids! We should feel so proud that we could come together and create a special moment in time for our children! Thank you Westside family for being you!
