My name is Sharri Vandall. I am starting my fourth year as West Side Principal. I have been married for
24 years, have four children, and three grandchildren. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my
family, working in my yard, going to the lake, crafting, floating the river, sky diving, zip lip lining, river
rafting, and taking walks.
I have been involved in education for 27 years. In that time, I have had many roles: non-instructional
aide, special education paraprofessional, classroom teacher, instructional coach, and principal. I believe
that all students can learn and succeed. My hope for your child is that they become a life long learner,
persevere when things are difficult, and build a stamina for learning. All students have strengths, as a
staff we hope to foster these strengths. As the instructional leader at West Side, I believe in
transparency. I want you to be apart of your child’s education, after all, you were your child’s first
teacher. At West Side we strive to be kind to one another.
The educational mission of Sidney Public Schools and West Side is to foster a safe and supportive
environment that cultivates excellence in learning through citizenship, self-discipline, motivation, and
positive social attitudes. Cooperation among the school, the home, and the community provides
students with the knowledge and skills necessary for successful lives and careers.
I believe that it takes a village to raise a child. I want you to be involved in your child’s education. I
invite you to come and visit West Side. It is my mission to have parents in our school. Throughout the
year we will have many activities for you and your student. Please come see the great things we are
doing at West Side.
At West Side we have school wide expectations for our students:
Be a Learner
Have a great school year! Please be a part of your child’s education. We are glad that you are part of
the West Side family!
