It is with great pride and excitement that together we write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed K-4 and 5-8 Principals of Westmore Oaks Elementary School. We are honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with its traditions of educating children. Dr. Salas has been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty one years and Mrs. Cormier for over 17 years. Dr. Salas has middle and high school experiences and Mrs. Cormier has elementary and middle school experience. Over our careers we have both focused on developing strong instruction strategies that lead to student academic and social growth. We are both excited and eager to bring our skills as educational leaders to Westmore Oaks and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.
In unison Dr. Salas and Mrs. Cormier will work hard to build strong relationships with parents, students, teachers, staff, and community partners. We look forward to collaborating with all stakeholders in the areas of student attendance, academics, and attitude (behavior). Together we will use data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous manner so that as a school team we will increase all of our students' achievement. Our goal is to prepare our students for the next grade level, high school, and ensure college and career readiness.
All of us at Westmore Oaks Elementary School, including teachers and staff, are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a great school year. This year, we will learn and listen from each other, and plan together to meet our student’s needs. We will continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your K-4 and 5-8 Principals, it is important to us that everyone who steps through our doors: teachers, staff, students and parents, are excited and welcomed to be at Westmore Oaks! We look forward to celebrating student success, teacher accomplishments, and parent/guardian partnerships. We are proud to be a part of the Westmore Oaks community, a place of tradition, respect, and forward thinking. We practice an open door policy and we welcome your input. We are looking forward to working with you and the Westmore team to help each student at Westmore Oaks Elementary meet their goals and have a successful school year!
