Principal's Perspective


Welcome to West Oak Intermediate School!  

We have had a great start to the new school year, in a new building, with a new name.  The students have been settling into their routines and getting used to the new spaces.  The staff has been as well. We are very excited to have extended PE to each day, as well as adding a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Math) course to our specials line up.

With the late start to the school year, a new transportation service, a new food service program, and even several new staff, I’m proud to say that we are operating very well.  While there have been some obstacles with transportation and food service, we are getting better every day.  

As parents, we understand that attendance is important in school.  Being in school every day means your child won’t miss out on learning.  Please try to schedule appointments and family trips outside of school hours.  If your child asks to stay home “just because,” remind him of what she or he might miss, such as their reading group or even PE class.  

Finally, as we are continuing to get used to routines, please make sure to check your child’s backpack each day for information, especially on Friday, and to sign up on your child’s teacher Classroom Dojo account.  We strive to provide families with the Big 3 each week; What did we do? How well did we do? What’s coming up next?

Again, welcome to West Oak Intermediate School, and the 2019-2020 school year!
