Hello...Dr. Seuss and I come in peace!! Dressing up for various celebrations (i.e. Dr. Seuss's birthday and I Love To Read Month) is fun to do at an elementary school! My name is Rita Humbert and I have had the privilege of being the Westside School Principal for six years. This school and the staff here at Westside are amazing. When you come into the office you will get to know all four of us pictured on this page. We are here to serve you, our Westside families.
Circles represent unity and wholeness. Without beginning or end, without sides or corners, a circle winds around to protect and include all. Built in the shape of a circle, Westside's structure reflects the school's mission to provide educational opportunities for all students in a safe accepting environment which promotes a positive self image, an appreciation for lifelong learning, and a commitment to world citizenship. The Westside circle is considered complete when children achieve their potential. Relationships drive this learning as students acquire a secure foundation ready to continue their journey outside the circle as a citizen of River Falls and beyond. Located near the Kinnickinnic River in western Pierce County, Wisconsin, Westside Elementary School is regarded as a high performing school that serves a population of students with diverse learning needs.

Welcome to our webpage and we look forward to meeting the needs of your family in this educational environment.
