Donated Books
National Down Syndrome Congress & The Self-Advocate Council donated these books to West Wing School!   
 

We need your help with specific BOOK DONATIONS:    The kindergarten through 8th grade teachers are currently learning a new writing curriculum called Lucy Calkins. This curriculum includes using several books to help students improve their writing skills. These books are used as examples to demonstrate a teaching point.   We are in need of books to help support our writing instruction and are asking for your help in doing this. We are asking for your donation to help purchase these books, which will be kept in a special "teacher's only" section of our library and used during writing instruction by ALL teachers in the school.  Please consider purchasing some of the titles OR donating a dollar amount for us to use. Both options will have your family's name on the donation sticker inside the book(s)!   Attached is the Google Doc link to view what is needed.   While in the Google Doc you have the capability to modify the information as it is filled to ensure the list is kept current.  Please contact Shari Zumstein if you need help or have questions about the list or how to work in Google Docs.    Google Doc Book List

Welcome!


Dr. Price-Barry Dear Current and Potential Parents of West Wing School,

Welcome to our West Wing website. This website has been designed to provide you with as much comprehensive information about our school as possible. Being the principal of this “A” rated school (by the Arizona Department of Education), is the best job in the world!!!

I am thrilled to be part of a school that employs teachers who are passionate and provide innovative and effective instruction to their students. We have several innovative programs at West Wing School and strive to make this school the best in the state!

Some of the programs that we offer, are different from other schools in the area:

West Wing offers a unique gifted model. This unique instructional model allows students to receive gifted services ALL DAY LONG! Over 57% of our teachers have earned either a full gifted endorsement or are in the process of obtaining it. We have a dedicated Gifted Instructional Coach, Shelly Schubert who works directly with teachers to support them in providing the instructional rigor, necessary to move your child's intellectual and academic skills to another level.

West Wing offers archery as part of the Physical Education Department in the middle school. The archery program is the only one in the district and the only one in the area. This is an engaging and active class that teaches students archery skills in a safe and controlled environment. As a former archery competitor in college, I would never have had the opportunity to participate in this unique sport, without having taken a similar class. It is beyond fun and exciting! Also check out our bowling classes, in PE....

Our music and band programs are incredibly engaging and provide students with a "hands on" opportunity to experience music at all levels. Every student will be provided instruction on how to read music. This program requires commitment from ALL. Just talk to any West Wing student about their music program and they will tell you, it's the best in the world!

West Wing has an Art Program that is award winning! Students are taught broad types of visual arts including ceramics, sculpture, fiber art, painting and drawing. (All of these materials are provided for FREE as part of our arts program) We are the #1 art program in the state of Arizona on Artsonia (the world's largest online kids art museum). The beauty of our Art Program is that ALL students are exposed to a world of art, art history and are taught techniques by one of the finest art teachers in the world! Come observe the incredible art teaching and projects that children are creating at West Wing School.

We deliver instruction to your child based on his/her individual skill level. In grades, K-4, we provide students a 20-30 minute uninterrupted instructional period (flex grouping) to focus directly on your child's skill level. Some of our students have come from various schools; when students have experienced a varied educational school background, it can create educational holes. Whether your child is exceptionally bright or an average learner, educational holes can be detrimental to any child's educational future. At West Wing, we make a strong commitment to filling those academic holes. In grades 5-8, we provide a departmentalized approach to educating your child. We provide comprehensive assessments at the start of each year in ALL grade levels and determine EXACTLY where your child's skill level is and what intervention or advanced programming they may need.

The beauty of what we do at West Wing School is to provide our students, not only with a state of art and rigorous education, but we provide an educational experience for the whole child! If you are looking for a well-rounded experience for your child that provides your child with it ALL! West Wing School is your school.

Please feel free to come and tour our school and get a close up view of the extraordinary educational opportunity that children are experiencing at West Wing School. Please feel free to contact me, if you need additional information about our school.

Educationally Yours,
Dr. Price-Barry
