Western Reserve Elementary School students working on projects in the classroom and at the zoo

Western Reserve Elementary

Greetings from Western Reserve Elementary! We are a K–6 school dedicated to nurturing the love of learning and discovery in our students. Our child-centered environment provides the perfect place for budding minds to grow and thrive in the care of passionate educators who love finding ways to meet individual learning needs. Teachers, staff members, and parents work together to ensure that every student has the support and encouragement to experience academic success, gain confidence in their unique strengths and abilities, and become lifelong learners.

At the side of this page, you’ll find links and information specific to WRE, from supply lists and parent letters to counseling information. We’ll post new information as it becomes available, so we encourage you to visit often.

Open House

Please join us for our Western Reserve Elementary School open house on Monday, August 20 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity see the classroom, drop off school supplies, and learn all about what is in store for the 2018-2019 school year. Please see our elementary open house flyer for more information. We look forward to seeing you there!

Principal’s Note

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of the staff at Western Reserve Elementary, it is our pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you. Our goal is to be your partners in education and help each student have a successful and rewarding school year. We are working to provide your child with the best education possible.

Our P.T.O. has been an invaluable asset to the school and to our programs. Please consider joining this wonderful organization.

The maintenance staff contributes to the positive atmosphere of our school. Our custodial staff takes great pride in the condition of our building. Many thanks to them.

Answers to your questions may be found in the parent/student handbook which you can find on our Home page Quick Links section under the Parent Information category. It contains valuable information on behavior expectations and dress code. If you would like a hard copy of the handbook, please request one from the office.

Your child's safety is very important to us. We dismiss car riders in grades four through six to the auditeria at 3:12 p.m. We dismiss car riders in grades kindergarten through three at 3:15 p.m.  We request that all parents of car riders wait in the auditeria for their child. To ensure an orderly dismissal, we release students to go to the auditeria. Students who are picked up before dismissal are released from the front office after sign-out. We do not release students from the classroom. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with these important safety issues.

We appreciate the opportunity to work with our most valuable asset: your children. Thank you for sharing them with us. It is so encouraging to watch their growth and progress each year. Working together, we will continue to educate for excellence while providing an inviting place for children to learn. We always look forward to partnering with parents to achieve success for our students. Please remember that you are always welcome at Western Reserve Elementary. In partnership with you, our faculty and support staff, and your children, we are WR.
