Principal's Corner

  •  Manuel Escalante
    Dear WAMS Family,
    As we head into the holidays and having completed the first half of the school year, it is a great time to reflect on the great accomplishments that we have experienced thus far.  As your principal, I think about the many great moments that our students have enjoyed this year through the efforts of our teachers, support staff, and our parents.

    December is a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the year among friends, family, and loved ones.  Hopefully, you can take some time during the winter break to create cherished memories with the people that are most important to you.  We are so busy just surviving, we often forget to look around and see where we might be able to improve someone’s life. The holidays could provide a great opportunity to teach our children the joy of giving to others, as well as showing compassion and kindness.  
    This is the time to think about the things we are grateful for, as well as creating new resolutions and aspirations for the new year to come.  Whatever you choose to focus on this holiday, may it bring you happiness and fulfillment.
    We look forward to seeing everyone again in January, well-rested and eager to get back to the rigorous learning at WAMS, where we will continue to strive to be Number ONE!
    Wishing you the happiest of holidays and success for the New Year!   
    Mr. M. Escalante,
