Mrs. Audra Wilson, Principal


I am beyond excited to welcome you back to the 2021-2022 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Westover this year—we are thrilled to have you as a part of our Wallaby family. It continues to be my distinct privilege and honor to serve the children and families of the Westover community.

As our community and country takes steps to heal from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and plan for new challenges ahead, we are greeted with new opportunities and possibilities. Know that our staff at Westover is committed to taking the lessons learned over the last 18 months to help mitigate learning interruptions and to move our students forward. With a strong focus on academics and our students’ well-being, we are looking forward to creating engaging and rigorous lessons that inspire and motivate. We will continue to provide a learning space that is positive, safe, and caring. Lifting this new year’s theme: Better Together, we will embrace the opportunity to have all of our students under one roof, to have our diverse backgrounds and perspectives shared in an inclusive environment, and to partner with all of our stakeholders to make this a transformative year!

To ensure a great start for each child, our team has spent time learning about our students, analyzing student performance and engagement data, developing schedules, updating policies, and identifying areas for improvement. As a result of our discussions and system-wide initiatives, we will focus our efforts in aligning with our interim superintendent’s vision. You can learn more about Dr. McKnight’s PROPSER 100 by linking to the following community message. In addition, our Westover team will continue our focus on better understanding how race and ethnicity impact learning and will engage in professional development on cultivating an antibias and antiracist school community. Finally, we will continue our implementation of Eureka math, as well as our implementation of the Benchmark Advance Literacy program for English Language Arts.

On behalf of the Westover Elementary School staff, I want to welcome you and your child to a brand new school year. Please know that we remain committed to the education and success of each child and to establishing a strong partnership between home and school; we truly are “better together!”

Audra M. Wilson, Principal
