    Thank you for taking a moment to visit the Westview Elementary School website!Buttimer Profile

    Westview School serves approximately 265 students in grades 3, 4, and 5 from the city of Wood Dale, Illinois. We’re located in Northeast DuPage County, approximately 4 miles directly west of O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.

    Having been principal at Westview School since the 2006-07 school year, I am proud of the collaborative spirit with which the faculty and staff approach student learning.  I am excited about returning to more normalcy, and I am certain the 2022-23 school year will be a success. Our staff and I are confident that, with your support, your student(s) will be able to reach their full academic potential!

    We have high expectations for academic achievement and continually make revisions to our curriculum and assessments in order to meet the rigor of the Common Core Standards as well as the Next Generation Science Standards.  And now more than ever, we are intentional about creating learning environments that take social and emotional learning needs into consideration.  

    Our students enjoy a variety of opportunities which promote creativity and personal growth.  See the section called “Clubs/Activities” in the  margin on the left for more information. 

    We embrace the learning potential made possible through technology, and all students are provided a Chromebook as well as engaging instruction that helps them to utilize the internet in a safe and responsible manner, all with the support and guidance of involved parents. 

    Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend school functions and become involved with their child’s education through our very active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  Meetings are open to all, and our minutes are posted to our website.  Click on the “PTO Information” button on the left to learn more about opportunities to get involved.  We are especially focused on promoting leadership among our parent volunteers to ensure that student learning is enhanced through our annual projects and events.  

    This web site is designed to be a resource for parents and visitors who wish to learn more about the incredible students and staff that contribute to the positive environment at Westview each day.  To learn more about what is happening at our school throughout the year, click on the “Westview School News” button along the left margin.   Each Friday at noon, all parents who provide their e-mail address receive an email with a link taking them to this web page where they can view the most recent weekly update from Westview School.  We also invite you to follow us on Twitter!   

    Finally, please take a moment to review our Vision and Mission statements which we take very seriously.  The entire Westview Staff and I look forward to serving you and your child as we strive to realize our vision of being an exemplary elementary school.

    Thank you, and enjoy your visit!
