Welcome to Carter G. Woodson Elementary School! I'm elated to be back as Principal of WES as we grow and evolve in our teaching and learning. We are continuing to grow in numbers, serving over 550 students with more than 85 staff members! Building relationships continue to be a large focus for not only me but for the staff as a whole. To help strengthen our relationships with students, we embarked on an initiative to use self-contained classrooms in grades Prek-5th. The students now only switch classes when they go to their Specials. We feel confident that this will not only reinforce building relationships but also maximize our instructional time. I look forward to an amazing year, full of successes and celebrations! Have a great year!
