A Message from Principal Scott Eidsness

My name is Scott Eidsness, and I am excited to be principal of Shirley Hills Primary School. Our theme for this year is Family! It is especially true in elementary schools that we become one big family! Many times it takes several people to inspire a child to learn at their best. Our Shirley Hills family is primed and ready to work hard this year to help all our students achieve at their personal best. Our staff will focus this year on personalizing each child's learning so they have more voice and choice in how they learn and show mastery.

These are exciting times in education and in Westonka. We have become a school that many people outside our district want to attend leading to healthy enrollment numbers and excitement for what the future holds. With our community's strong support we passed a building referendum that will add needed theatre and gym space so our growing programs have the facilities to support their needs.

My family and I have lived here in the Westonka area since 2001 and my three daughters attend or have graduated from Westonka schools. As parents, we know that Shirley Hills is a fantastic school that focuses on meeting students’ academic, social, and emotional needs, and as principal I will work hard to honor the great work being done by the teachers and staff.

It is truly an honor to work in the Westonka School District and serve our wonderful families. Please contact me if you have questions and/or concerns.
