Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am so excited to plan for our upcoming school year. We have all been through so much in the past 18 months. As our staff plans to bring students back full time, rest assured that we will continue to ensure our safety protocols are still being followed with fidelity. The safety and welfare of our students, staff and families are always our top priorities. We appreciate the constant support our Westmont community has shown us as we navigate through these unprecedented times. We truly value our partnership with our parents and community groups.
This year we are so excited to bring back our dance, music, band and theater programs. We put these programs on hold last year but will be incorporating them back into our daily schedule. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade will again be participating in a robust music and dance program taught by professional teachers. Our VAPA teachers have been with Westmont since the VAPA program started and know how to build learning concepts by scaffolding lessons. We will once again have the Disney Musical in Schools program for fourth and fifth grade students and Readers Theater in all grade levels. Our fabulous band program will once again be offered to fourth and fifth grade students. We are always very proud that we can offer band classes during the school day and allow all students to take their instrument home for the year at no cost. We look forward to inviting parents to watch all of our rising stars shine at a variety of performances.
As we enter our third year of our thoroughly modernized campus, we are always grateful to the community for passing Measure R to allow our campus to be the gem that it is today. Westmont is the first school to be modernized in the Ocean View School District using Measure R bond money. With all new plumbing, heating, air conditioning, new tile, carpeting, windows, technology and furniture we are ready to teach in the 21st century. We have a beautiful dance studio, large band room, gorgeous library and very cool multipurpose room. Our library is state of the art with flexible seating and new technology. Students and parents alike will be amazed at all the upgrades our campus has gone through. I would encourage potential families to schedule a tour to see our beautiful campus.
This year promises to bring new opportunities for our students to learn and gain new skills in a rich and thriving visual and performing arts environment. We hope you are able to join us on this exciting journey.
