Welcome! A Message from the Superintendent

A headshot of Superintendent Lisa Remy, Ed.D.The beginning of a new school year is one of my favorite times of the year. I hope you were able to enjoy opportunities for fun and learning with your children this summer. As we begin this new school year, I am filled with hope, vision, and excitement.

This year has brought many new district administrators to the West Des Moines Community Schools. They have been working to learn our system and get to know each other this summer, and I know they are excited to meet each of you. As a district, we will be focusing on effective grading practices, equity, and 1:1 implementation this year. We will share progress updates on these topics with you throughout the year.

Thank you for joining us for the 2017-18 school year. We will work every day to teach your children new things and challenge them with interesting questions. I wish you a year filled with great success and great learning!

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year,

Superintendent Lisa Remy, Ed.D.
