Message from the Principal
Welcome to West Powellhurst Elementary School!
We are thrilled to have our students, parents, and staff back for another exciting year of learning and growth. Whether you are a returning member of our school community or joining us for the first time, we extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you.
At West Powellhurst Elementary, we are committed to providing a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our dedicated staff is excited to inspire and empower your children to reach their full potential. We believe that every child is important and we embrace our diverse cultures and traditions. We can’t wait to learn from you as we grow together.
As we embark on this new school year, we encourage you to stay connected with us through our website and our district communication platform, ParentSquare. There you’ll find valuable information, updates, and resources to support your child’s educational journey. ParentSquare is a valuable tool to send and receive messages about the classroom, our school, and our district. It has the advantage of being able to translate in over 100 languages and send immediate alerts. We believe in the importance of a strong partnership between home and school, and we look forward to working together to create a positive and enriching experience for our students.
Thank you for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your children. We are confident that, together, we will make this school year a remarkable and successful one.
Here’s to a year filled with curiosity, discovery, and achievement!
Susan Olds, your WP Principal
