Principal Welcome

Welcome to Westside!

Home of the Wildcats

Welcome to Westside, Home of the Wildcats!  We are a wonderfully diverse community of over 400 students that is committed to building and maintaining positive relationships with our students and families.

Here at Westside we believe that all students can and will be successful with a combination of high expectations for learning and behavior as well as the love and support they need to build and maintain positive relationships with staff as well as their peers.  At Westside we pride ourselves on the strong relationships we build with our students and families, we are truly a community committed to the academic and social emotional success of every student.

In addition to being a beautifully diverse neighborhood school, we are also a Community School.  Being a Community School gives us the unique ability to offer free programs like after school tutoring, sports classes, cooking classes, English classes and much, much more to our students, their families as well as the Sun Prairie community.

I am honored to be the Principal here at Westside Elementary. We are truly a community that cares for and supports one another in order to provide a high quality education that is tailored to meet the needs of each and every one of our scholars.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
