Dear Parents,

We have had a great start to the 2022-23 school year here at West Main. As we continue to move beyond the pandemic, we are beginning to return to some of our pre-pandemic routines and events. 

So far this year, we have hosted a fall harvest party, the Father’s Walk, a Veteran’s Day breakfast, and a school-wide holiday concert. Students have had the opportunity to take several walking field trips in town with more out of town field trips planned for the spring. 

As much fun as we are having outside the classroom, we are working just as hard in the classroom. We have adopted a new ELA series that is challenging our students with the rigor that will push our students to be high achievers. Our fourth graders have been learning about coding with robots in a collaboration with Reed Memorial Library, and they have also created amazing designs with the 3D-printer. Students have been participating in many hands-on activities and loving every minute. 

This year our motto has been We Are West Main. We demonstrate this by being respectful, responsible and in control. We have created a welcoming, caring, inclusive environment at West Main where students feel safe and ready to learn. 

I am proud to have joined the West Main family this year. I look forward to the rest of the year and many years to come. There truly is no place I’d rather be.
