Thank you for a successful start to our second nine weeks! Learning is alive and in full effect at West Kemper Elementary. The students have settled in and teachers are providing engaging lessons on a daily basis. Your child’s academic growth and success is of the utmost importance to the staff at WKE. Our school goal for the 2014-2015 school year is 414. We have invited all parents to pick up MCT2 Reports and Star Assessment results. Please contact your child’s teacher or WKE Parent Liaison, Rose McGraw if you have not had the opportunity to pick up your child’s test information.

Note From our PTO
Help us continue to build our home and school connection. This relationship will certainly benefit our students. Attendance is very improtant. School begins daily at 7:15 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. We need students here daily. We are making every minute count at WKE. Our instructional schedule is designed for bell-to bell teaching and students are needed. We need you to adhere to our instructional schedule as close as possible. We have our intervention time from 2:30 p.m.-3:15 p.m. This will help boost students' math and reading scores. Thanks to all who attended the last PTO meeting. We have fundraising activities planned throughout the year. Our next meeting is Monday, November 3rd.
Our vision is to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where children will recognize and achieve their fullest potential, so that they can make their best contribution to society.
To provide a quality education for the youth that attends our school. We believe that a good education is necessary for good citizenship in a democracy.
The effectiveness of our district's mission rests with competent and dedicated teachers and administrators who believe and promote a healthy and safe environment for the purpose of academic achievement.
