Parent and Family Engagement
Welcome Parents & Families of Westhaven Elementary

I am Shai Haynes, the Title 1 Parent and Family Engagement Liaison here at Westhaven Elementary School. My primary role is to build relationships between parents/families and the school environment. I also provide resources to assist parents/families with their child’s academic success. During this time, I will be posting resources each week to help with virtual learning. Please check weekly for updates as well as community events. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. 

Please check your classdojo for information daily for any notifications from teachers.
