    Welcome to Westover Hills Elementary School, home of the Beavers! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about our school community, including our amazing students, our loving staff, our supporting families  and partners, and our exciting programs. 

    As your principal, I am honored to lead our school community to help provide an exciting and rigorous educational experience for our students. Our team is committed to ensuring that our students receive the best possible support to learn and grow. 

    My vision for Westover Hills ES is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

    Our skilled and devoted staff are committed to making a difference. They want to have a positive impact on your child and above all, they want to provide them with an engaging and joyful learning experience that supports them in becoming independent learners.  Our teachers are always working to get better at what they do through personal self-development and participation in a wide variety of professional development activities. They model life-long learning for our students and never settle for anything less than their best! Thank you  to our incredible staff for their amazing professionalism and incredible energy and their commitment to our students.

    Great schools always come back to the relationship between the child and the teacher. Be sure and find ways to engage yourself in school life – your child will notice and respond. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. May we all be present for the joy of learning, the satisfaction of a job well done, and the comfort that comes from belonging to a community. 

    To my students, staff, families, and community; I am so honored to be your servant leader. Thank you for the opportunity to work with such an amazing school community. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.

    If you have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me via at aelkoub@rvaschools.net or 804.780.5002.

    Yours in service,

    Alison El Koubi

    Principal, Westover Hills Elementary School

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - April 2, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Spring Break! I hope you're able to take some time for yourself this week – to rest, reflect, and recharge. I'm going to practice what I'm preaching so there won't be any RPS Direct next week. Look for the next one when we return on Monday, April 12. Thanks for your understanding! RPS Senior in the News – Check out this amazing story about Harold Aquino, senior at George Wythe High School. Harold will graduate at the top of his class with a 5.0 GPA (!) and multiple Associate Degrees. He's been accepted to his dream school, VCU, among many others. If Harold decides to attend VCU, he'll enter as a...senior! Harold, we are so proud of you! Continental Societies Donation – Many thanks to Continental Societies, Inc., Richmond, Virginia Chapter, for their donation of 5,000 children’s masks for our fall reopening.
