"Back to Basics"
Assuring the Essential while Expanding the Possible
"A New Way of Work"
Dear West Gadsden High School Parents:
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. We look forward to a grand year at West Gadsden where our mission is “To prepare students for college, career, and life readiness by equipping them with the necessary skills to compete on a global scale.” We have some changes to our administration, faculty and staff but are confident that we will move forward this school term.
Student academic success is the foremost goal of every staff member at West Gadsden High School. We have faith that every student will learn to the highest level and we are prepared to offer more time and support to every student who needs it. We ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day on time. One of the most important things your child can do to achieve academic achievement is also one of the most basic: going to school every day. In fact, research has shown that your child's attendance record may be the biggest factor influencing her/his academic success.
Parents are one of our most important partners at school. This Fall we will be looking for volunteers to join our PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and SAC (School Advisory Council) which raises funds for student activities and plans school-wide events, such as Homecoming Parades. Please stop by the office if you are interested in either of these important committees.
Our focus this year will always go back to our mission. We are truly about teaching and learning and will do everything we can to continue to improve and support our students in becoming critical thinkers and problem solvers, be able to collaborate and communicate effectively, and to achieve to their highest potential. We know we are stronger together so we invite and encourage a continued partnership between staff, students, parents and the community.
The Administrative Team
