Principal’s Points


      It’s hard to believe we are finally at the end of the school year. Each year it seems the year flies by and this year is no different. We’ve had another successful year with growth in all areas. 

I appreciate the continued support of our parents and community. Your sense of volunteerism enables us to do much more as a school with the children being the ultimate winners. I especially want to thank PTO President Kristen Leach and the PTO Executive Board for their great work this year. This special group of women gave countless hours to make the various programs at our school work. 

      We want to wish a hearty farewell and congratulations to Second Grade Teacher Ms. Therese Tusa, Instructional Specialist Mr. Perry Swindle, and Science Lab Teacher Mrs. Mary Raney who are retiring this year. Please read the news article later on in today’s Pony Express for more info about each one of them. Thank you for your service to HISD and our school. 

      We also say farewell to Kindergarten Teacher Ms. Chelsea Hefner, Life Skills Teacher Mrs. Julia Rojas, and our Assistant Principal Mrs. Tanya Heard who are moving to other school districts next year. Thank you for your work with our children. 

      For our 5th Graders and other students who are leaving West U this year, we all wish you the best of luck in middle school or your new elementary school. 

For our Kindergarten through 4th Graders who are returning to West U, we will see you on Monday, August 25 to kick off what will be another great year! 


Have a grand week and a wonderful and relaxing summer!

PTO President’s Column

      It has been a great year to be your PTO President. I want to thank the PTO Executive Board and all of the many parents who stepped up and volunteered to help this year. I encourage everyone to continue to volunteer next year and assist your new PTO President Elizabeth Karkowsky and her Board; they can’t do it alone. 


Thanks again for your support and for being a Super Hero for our children! Have a great week and a wonderful summer. 
Kristen Leach, PTO President
