Principal's Message

Welcome to the last month of 2014 everyone!

This year has sure flown by fast, and with the passing of Thanksgiving last week, and the new year approaching fast, I am flooded with feelings of gratefulness.  First of all, I am very thankful for my new Westfield Village family. The students, staff and community have been so wonderful to work with, and FLEXIBLE!  I really appreciate that you all understand I jumped into this position with a whole lot of work to catch up on…and now two months into the job, I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  So thank you for understanding that there is so much more going on behind the scenes.  And I know my hard work partnered with our staff’s hard word around here is beginning to make a difference!  I see more smiling faces and people feeling like they can get into the groove of their job to do what’s best for children.  I am blessed that we have an amazing staff of experts that do their job very well!  And our students benefit from it every day! Our students are also smiling more and more and are excited to come to school. We have added fun incentives for perfect attendance, I was able to get huge donations from my residential community to increase the playground equipment, we helped break a Guinness World Record for Cup Stacking…and our school has been in the news limelight lately for the great things we do here, such as the World Record event and our recent annual Community Giveaway.  So there’s a lot to smile about here at Westfield, and even more reasons coming up soon, so stay tuned!!!!

Safety is always my top priority here at Westfield. With the rainy weather now upon us, it is very important that our students are extra careful when travelling to and from school.  Please remind your students to be watching for cars when walking, biking or on their scooters. And for them to be extra cautious when crossing the street.  We will have Officer Bowers here at our school on 12/12/14 to review safety tips for all of our students. Again, safety is most important to us, so we are always looking for ways to make our school even safer than it already is.  Thanks!!!

For the New Year, we are hoping to increase our cleared volunteer brigade, so that we may add a Parent Patrol, and a volunteer Parking Lot Volunteer. These are just a couple of the things that we are in the works on, and we hope that you will help us by applying to be a volunteer. It’s with your help that we can elevate Westfield to being the best school in the USA!

From our Westfield family to yours, we wish you all a wonderful Winter Season,

Principal Giacomini

If absences are not verified within 72 hours, the absence(s) will be considered unexcused.
