Dr. Betancourt met with our Student Leadership Team today.  The team is comprised of 5th grade students and is designed to help give administration a “student outlook” on what is going on in our school.

Today the team met with Dr. B to give feedback and suggestions on our school Vision and Mission statements.  Students discussed their ideas and shared them back with Dr. Betancourt.  The input from the student team will be shared with our staff and used to guide us in our plan to make Westside the best!
