West Point Elementary School has approximately 420 students and approximateley 50 professional and support staff members. We have three classes of each grade: K-5, two learning support classes, guidance services, remedial reading, speech and language support, and full time nursing support. Students also receive art, music, library, technology, and physical eduction once per 5-day cycle.
We have adopted the school-wide POSITIVE BEHAVIOR SUPPORT THEME:
"West Point Students, Families, and Staff ARE CARING:
Toward themselves, others, and the community."
From this we have identified the following nine character traits that we feel are important for the development of productive adults:
Attitude, Respect, Empathy, Citizenship,
Acceptance, Responsibility, Improvement, Neatness, and Generosity
Teachers and other staff members teach and reinforce lessons based on the character traits, in an effort to make West Point a "bully-free" zone, as well as an environment for positive growth and achievement.
The reading theme for the 2017-2018 school year is : Welcome to the Jungle: Where Children Learn, Explore, and Grow
