Principal's Message

Dear Wesley Gaines Families,

I am honored to be the principal of Wesley Gaines and am excited to work with 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 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!

Thank you for all of your support during this wonderful first year back at Gaines. We came together as a community to provide distance learning during a challenging time.

Enjoy some rest and relaxation during the summer break. We look forward to seeing you in the 2020-2021 school year!

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

Karen Sullivan, Principal
