Greetings Panther Family!

I am Rochelle Harris, your new principal at West Clayton Elementary. I am very honored and excited to join the West Clayton Family.  I look forward to meeting students, staff, parents, and community members. As I make this transition to West Clayton Elementary, I am aware of the anticipation and eagerness that accompanies new leadership in any organization. I know that change can provoke both excitement and anxiety. It is my goal to spend my first several months learning about our school and all of its stakeholders. I eagerly anticipate getting to know each of you, and learning about your hopes and dreams for our school. What is important to you about West Clayton Elementary? What do you want to learn more about? What are we proud of? What do we want to work on? Finding out the answers to these questions is one of my “Entry Plan” goals.

As your new principal, it is my mission to join forces with you and ensure our students receive nothing less than excellence.  I affirm that genuine collaboration fosters ownership of a rich school culture. Please know that I welcome and desire your input as we work toward making West Clayton Elementary the best we can possibly be! Supporting our scholars to do well at school, and in their lives, is the center of our work. I am honored to have been selected to serve this professional learning community, and will work hard to gain your trust and respect as West Clayton Elementary’ s principal. I look forward to serving you. 

I look forward to meeting each of you during our Meet and Greet on July 31,2023 from 1:00 – 3:00 at West Clayton Elementary.
