Principal’s Message

I am excited to be joining the team at École Westridge Elementary this year.  I have spent the past 27 years in Burnaby schools and enjoy each new opportunity to work with students, staff and parents to create a rich learning environment for all of us.  It takes a strong team of staff to provide a safe, caring place for all students to grow and develop.
Parents are an important part of all that we do at École Westridge and I look forward to getting to know you and working alongside you as we provide opportunities to enrich the lives of the children.  Experiences are a valuable part of a child’s learning and we want to provide all children with the same opportunities.  We are pleased to be opening a new playground this fall, as a result of the hard work and dedication of the PAC.  Thank you so much for all your efforts!
As we move into our new three year goal of writing, we look forward to creating many opportunities for students and parents to engage in this learning journey and will continue to update you on our progress.  Please stay informed by reading items sent out on our listserv.  We will do our best to communicate regularly.  The website is also available for finding out information.
We welcome your input and feedback as partners in your child’s education.  Our door is always open for questions and concerns.  Please come in and introduce yourself.  I look forward to getting to know all the students, staff and parents in this community.
