  • With the introduction of a new principal, new football coach and their staff, I can see the West Caldwell of old starting to re-emerge! Spirit is growing, community involvement and pride is coming back. We are not there yet, but It is a breath of fresh air to see school leaders really care about our kids and OUR school!
    Go Warriors!
