What a joy to be greeted by the smiles and happy conversations of children every day! Thank you for supporting us in our work with your child. We desire to meet the needs of all students and families. We strive to provide a safe and happy environment for children to learn in ways that are developmentally appropriate. We believe we are doing this every day at West.
West Elementary would like to invite you to be an important part of your child's education. You are your child's first and most important teacher, and we value your input and the work you do with your child. West offers many opportunities to volunteer and support what we do at West. Please watch for those opportunities or contact your child's teacher for more information.
As we move through this school year, we encourage you to share in some conversations with your child. Young children love to talk. They have many wonderful stories to tell about their experiences at school. They love to know that someone is listening. They love to hear stories about you and your childhood - have fun with this. Please take time to truly listen to them. This time with you is a priceless gift.
Enjoy the school year!

West Elementary Believes...
You are entering the world of the child.
If the furniture is uncomfortable and too small for you, remember that it fits us just fine.
If you must walk around our games, toys, and block structures, remember that it is through the use of manipulatives and this kind of experimentation that we learn best.
If we are noisy as we work and play, it is because we are learning to live with each other.
If we come up to you, don't be surprised. We are open, friendly, and curious, and we want to know you as our friend.
Enjoy our world and when you leave, we hope you carry with you some of our enthusiasm for living and learning.
Hutchinson Public Schools believe that...
Relationships are essential for student success.
All students learn.
A culture of high expectations is critical.
A meaningful and challenging curriculum is vital.
