A Message From The Westmore Principal:

Welcome to the Westmore Principal Web Page!


August 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians:

The beginning of each school year is a time filled with great anticipation of what is to come.  This will be my second year as Principal of Westmore Elementary School, and I am thrilled at the opportunity in knowing all of you and engaging in the educational process together. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this year successful. I am a lifelong educator who brings a firm commitment to students and families as well as a love of learning and problem solving.  Student academic success is the main goal of every staff member at Westmore Elementary School and we are committed to using Best Practice strategies to make sure all students are reaching their potential.  Have a great rest of the summer and we look forward to seeing you in a few weeks. 

As I move into my second year as principal, I will be whole-heartedly focused on making sure we don't lose sight of our purpose at Westmore.  We will continue to make sure all of our students will reach their academic and behavior potential.  By focusing on "Best Practice" strategies, such as the workshop model, we will be diligent in differentiating to meet the needs of all of our students in reading, writing and math.  One of our main goals this year will be focused on making sure we challenge our higher achieving students by making sure they have opportunities that push them to grow.  


If for any reason you need to speak with me, my door is always open.  Feel free to contact me through email: jgibbas@d45.org or by phone at 630-516-6513.  

John Gibbas

Westmore Principal

 

 

 What is PBIS?

PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and it is a positive, proactive systems approach to establishing the behavioral supports and social culture needed for all students in a school to achieve social, emotional and academic success. Illinois PBIS Network

How Has PBIS Changed At Westmore?

PBIS looks a little different this year than it has in the past.  Sure, we still focus on teaching expectations in all areas in our building, but we are changing the way we recognize children. In the past, students were able to earn "Pride Paws" which were given to children when they were following school expectations.  

We have replaced "Pride Paws" with "Cat Cash". "Cat Cash" will allow staff more opportunities to recognize students appropriate behaviors, because now children are excited about the PBIS program.  Children are still recognized for following school-wide expectations, but now the children can for save "Cat Cash" for our PBIS Celebrations called FUN FRIDAYS.  During our FUN FRIDAYs, children will be able to spend their hard earned "Cat Cash" on a menu of items that occur throughout the day.  FUN FRIDAYs are a celebration of student's positive behaviors and will occur once a quarter.
