Milton's Message

The best thing about being a teacher is that it matters.  The hardest thing about being a teacher is that it matters every day.

Looking Ahead

Without the support of our community, we could not do what we do in this school system.  The West Fel Education Foundation is just one example of the support we receive.  To help raise funds to support the schools, we encourage you to participate in the West Fel Education Foundation's Dodgeball Challenge September 21.  With a kid zone, 10K, dodgeball tournament, and more, there is something for everyone!

Grateful Moment #grateFEL

We are grateful for the hard work of our students and teachers to produce the following academic results.  We could not achieve in this way without the support of our parents, employees, and community.  It is a team effort and everyone makes a contribution and our students benefit.  #grateFEL #teamwork #contribution
