Principal's Corner

Mrs. Tisha Lewis


Welcome to Westside Elementary School, "Where little people make a big difference." We are committed to ensuring that all children learn and achieve high academic standards. Our goal is to embrace the best educational practices, while providing a safe and nurturing environment for all to thrive in. As a team, we will ensure that every student has the opportunity to realize their full potential as confident, successful leaders. As Westside’s new leader, I would like to personally thank you for taking a moment to explore the information that is provided through our website. It is designed to serve as a resource for our students, school staff, parents, and the Demopolis community. We also utilize our social media sites frequently to provide important information. Please be sure to like our Facebook and Twitter pages. 


Now, I would like to take this opportunity to share information with you about myself. First off, I am excited about the opportunity to lead this great school. This will begin my 15th year in education. I have served as a social studies teacher, guidance counselor and assistant principal within those years. I am a Marengo County native. Sweet Water, Alabama is where I call home. My husband and I have three children.  I am a proud alumna of both Stillman College and the University of West Alabama. As your school principal, I welcome you to come experience the learning opportunities that are provided to our students. I recognize the importance of a strong partnership between community, home and school; therefore, I strongly encourage parental involvement. Please take part in the many upcoming fun filled events to be held here at Westside. We need your support in order for our students to reach their maximum success. Take an opportunity to join our parent and community organizations. You can expect a positive atmosphere and open lines of communication at Westside.  Thanks for being the best part of "Team Westside”.
