    Dear West Union Families,

    West Union Elementary School is the place to be! 

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at West Union Elementary, home of the Wolverines. I am beyond excited to be here to start my 8th year as principal. We are all a part of what has been an eventful and historic school year. Although we are starting the year off in Comprehensive Distance Learning, I hope to be able to meet each and every family in person once we are back in the building. I look forward to collaborating with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success. 

    Our staff has worked tirelessly to make this the best year possible for every student. All staff have taken part in new trainings that help support student, family, and teacher connections. We are also dedicated to supporting our students and families so they have what they need to be successful. We will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at West Union by building strong relationships with parents, students, colleagues, and community partners.  We will continue to build community through character education initiatives like Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) as well as fostering a nurturing, safe environment for children. Our goal is to increase student achievement while also closing the academic gaps, opportunity gaps, and belief gaps for ALL students.

    West Union serves a diverse population of learners and equity is at the core of our practices. We seek out, recognize, and appreciate input from all stakeholders in our diverse community. We also appreciate the multitude of family backgrounds and cultures that we can celebrate and learn from. 

    West Union staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to provide rigorous engagement opportunities in literacy, writing, math, and science in order to achieve academic growth for all students. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek continuous improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together to meet those expectations.

    Thank you for trusting us with the education and safety of your child. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email your child’s teacher and/or myself. Family support is the key to student achievement. We are all in this together!

    In partnership,

    John Allen

Espero poder colaborar con usted como socio en la educación para garantizar el éxito de su estudiante. 

    Nuestro personal ha trabajado muy duro para ser este año el mejor año para cada estudiante. Todo el personal ha participado en entrenamientos nuevos que ayudan a apoyar conexiones entre estudiantes, familias, y maestros. También estamos dedicados a apoyar a nuestros estudiantes y familias para que tengan lo que necesitan para ser exitosos. Trabajaremos duro para continuar el legado de éxito establecido en West Union por medio de la construcción de relaciones fuertes con padres, estudiantes, colegas, y socios de la comunidad. Continuaremos construyendo comunidad a través de iniciativas de educación del carácter como el Apoyo de Intervención de Conducta Positiva (PBIS), así como también fomentando un ambiente seguro y cariñoso para los niños. Nuestra meta es aumentar el logro estudiantil junto con disminuir la brechas académicas, brechas de oportunidad, y brechas de creencias para TODOS los estudiantes.

    West Union sirve a una población diversa de estudiantes y la equidad es el centro de nuestras prácticas.

Establecemos altas expectativas para nosotros y nuestros estudiantes jóvenes, y trabajamos juntos para cumplir con esas expectativas.

    Gracias por confiar en nosotros con la educación y seguridad de tu hijo/a. Si tienes preguntas o preocupaciones, no dudes en enviarle un mensaje al maestro/a de tu hijo/a o/a mi. El apoyo familiar es la clave para el éxito de tu estudiante. ¡Estamos en esto juntos!
