Principal's Message

With great excitement I welcome all of Knoxville Community Schools’ youngest students to West Elementary! We provide exciting opportunities for students in preschool through 2nd grade. West has a faculty committed to excellence in academic, social-emotional and behavioral learning in early childhood. Your child will be challenged with a rigorous curriculum including reading/language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, physical education, guidance, music and art. In order to participate fully in this, it will be important for your child to come to school each day ready to learn. We will invite you to become a part of your child’s learning by talking with your child each day about school and by contacting your child’s teacher if you have questions or concerns.

We are so pleased with our new addition/renovation project and fully climate-controlled learning environment! Thank you so much for entrusting your children to us. We are very pleased with how efficient our drop off/pick up system is working, and that is thanks to all of the adults who use our drive through system, crosswalks and parking lot expansion to keep things running smoothly. Your patience and cooperation helps keep all our students safe as they come and go from school everyday!

Thank you for taking time to peruse our website. We encourage you to get involved with PTO, a dedicated group of parents and teachers who support our elementary schools in so many ways! Please let us know of any way we can assist you in making your child’s first school experiences positive thus encouraging them to take pride in their learning and accomplishments.

I look forward to meeting and working with each of you to support your child as he/she embarks upon a life-long adventure in learning!
