Principal's Message

Dear Wesley Gaines Families,

We had a great start to the 2019-2020 school year! It was a pleasure to meet so many families at arrival and dismissal in the first few days of school.

I am honored to be the principal of Wesley Gaines and look forward to serving the students, parents and families that make up this wonderful community.   At Gaines, we have a dedicated and caring staff that will ensure that your child receives the very best education in a safe and nurturing environment.

At Wesley Gaines, we are a Safe and Civil School.  We believe that all students should be able to learn and play in a safe and civil environment.  To accomplish this goal, we continually teach our students about positive behaviors and attitudes through clear expectations and procedures. 

This year, we will continue to prepare our students for 21st century citizenship by providing them with opportunities to use technology as a tool for learning, strengthen collaboration and communication skills, and engage in problem solving strategies within the instructional day. We will continue to encourage a growth mindset to prepare all students to be lifelong learners. 

We welcome volunteers and encourage you to support our school by joining the Wesley Gaines PTA and becoming an active participant in school events. We are a team working together to prepare our students by building strong foundations for success!

Please join us at Back to School Night on September 12th. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 562-602-8012
