Mrs. Matis Farewell

Submitted by monica.bair on Tue, 06/02/2015 - 14:27

The week before school let out for the summer, students and teachers surprised Mrs. Matis with a farewell assembly.  Under the direction of the facilitator Teresa Jordan, students learned a special song "Living in the Hall of Fame".  The entire school also participated in an elaborately choreographed lip dub with a variety of songs.  Everyone had fun putting this together. 

Sara Matis has been the principal of Westside for eight years and has become a beloved administrator.  Students always talk about how she knows each one of them by name, and even when she disciplines them, does it in a kind way.  She will be very missed as she begins a new administrative appointment in Mapleton at Maple Ridge Elementary.
