Principal's Message to Students
This year, your educational journey continues at West Hollow Middle School. The administration, faculty, and staff are dedicated to providing a safe, nurturing environment for you to explore a wide range of academic, athletic and interactive personal experiences. Along with these opportunities comes greater responsibility on your part. While West Hollow is an outstanding place for you to grow, the daily choices you and your classmates make have the greatest impact on the student experience. Learning to coexist with varying personalities is a life skill that we encourage all to embrace. The expectation to treat all who enter our halls with dignity and respect is for ALL. The faculty and staff are here to guide you toward good choices. Additionally, it is my hope that you find ways to enrich the lives of those around you by becoming a valuable member of the school community.
West Hollow provides a plethora of ways for you to explore and develop your interests. I encourage you to use this year to try new activities, join an after-school extracurricular activity and forge new friendships. This is an ideal time to meet new people, find those that share your interest and soar. At West Hollow we have developed opportunities for you to begin to select how you spend your free time. During lunch, you may select to socialize with classmates, enjoy recreational activities, research or play chess in the Library, spend time in the Tech Lounge or Cove or build and create in our Maker Space.
Making the most of your West Hollow experience requires some effort on your part. Organizing your course materials, time and commitments should be a priority as you navigate through middle school. Proper organization will increase the likelihood of academic success. This Agenda Book, along with many technology based tools are available to help you manage your time and responsibilities.
Please read and become familiar with its contents.
We look forward to an outstanding school year filled with positive experiences and to working with you as you navigate on your journey towards high school. William James, an early American educator said it best, “Act as if what you do makes a difference…it DOES!”
