West Side Elementary families, We are now collecting data about the culture of our school. The culture of a school includes its rules, values, and traditions. It is also linked to the relationships among staff members and between staff and students. School culture plays an important role in the school and in helping students reach their full potential. Please provide your honest, thoughtful responses to this school culture survey. Your answers will be used as we work to improve our school for your learners. If you would prefer to wait for a paper copy of the survey, they will be available at parent-teacher conferences, but we ask that you only complete the survey one time. Thank you for your time and participation; we appreciate you! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfnkwCEnILEgwTlic78iFlG6onVdekviEWQiEcUHAiY5P5c9w/viewform
