Welcome to West Gates Avenue Elementary School!  It is our goal that each child will learn, grow, and develop every day.  Our desire is to provide and promote academic excellence in a warm and supportive school climate.  Just as important as academic excellence, a strong emphasis is placed on citizenship and character development.

Parental and community support enhances the quality of education at West Gates.  We hope you will visit often and participate in the many activities that the school and PTA provide for your children.  Please feel free to call and speak to any one of our dedicated staff members, join the PTA, and volunteer your time where possible.  We know that your involvement, combined with the efforts of an outstanding faculty, will make this school year a rewarding experience for your child.  Please join me as we work together to create a bright and successful future for all our students.

It is with genuine sincerity that I wish each and every one of our families and staff members a successful and happy school year.  

Donna Smawley
