This Thursday!!!!

Dear Parents and Friends.
I am urging you to attend the Westport School Building Committee (WSBC) Public Forum + Informational Session this Thursday, May 5 from 6pm to 8pm at the Macomber Primary School. Members of the WSBC, architect Jonathan Levi,and project director Richard Marks will present and be available to answer your questions and take suggestions.
This past Saturday I attended the informative and hope-filled School Building Committee Visioning Session. Together with with David Stephen, educational consultant from New Vista Design and Jonathan Levi Architects, we learned more about the process to move forward on making thoughtful, deliberate decisions to provide an educational facility that will provide OUR CHILDREN with the proper 21st century learning environment. This new school needs to foster their imagination, explore their interests and curiosity, and incorporate flexible and adaptable space serve our ENTIRE town community for today and future generations. The journey to this goal is not easy and it takes the support of our community to move forward.
We need your input today and your continued support, including suggestions, attending meetings and spreading the word to family, friends and neighbors that the opportunity with the Massachusetts School Building Authority, our partners in making this dream possible must be seized now.

Westport Community Schools

Welcome to the Westport Community Schools. Our school district offers a wonderful and diverse educational opportunity for all our students.

As many of you know, public school finance has faced unprecedented challenges in the past few years. In addition to funding challenges, Massachusetts has taken an aggressive approach to education reform. As such, expectations have never been higher while, at the same time, challenges have never been greater. In spite of all that has developed at the State level in the past few years, Westport Community Schools continues to maintain positive results for student growth and achievement. Our students shine not only in the classroom but on the stage, (through the arts, band, chorus), on the field and through extra-curricular activities.

Through their pre-kindergarten through grade twelve schooling, our students work to develop integrity, accountability, a strong work ethic, and multiple other qualities that help them become successful contributors to our society. Students in Westport are well poised for success upon completion of their education. The parents, teachers, staff, and community do a remarkable job of supporting our students and setting high expectations that translate in to student success for years to come.

Please regularly check out our website for updates and happenings. We are also on Facebook! Check us out when you get a chance.

Ann Marie Dargon, Ed.D
Superintendent of Schools
