Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! It is truly a great pleasure to greet you on behalf of the entire staff! As a staff, we are committed to providing an environment where all students are able to reach their potential.
Weyerhaeuser Elementary offers a strong, comprehensive academic program based on Common Core State Standards that emphasizes literacy (reading and writing), mathematics, technology, science and social studies. We were recognized for our exemplary instruction in science, technology, engineering and mathematics in 2015 and given the STEM Lighthouse award by the State of Washington. We continue to expand our STEM initiatives, integrating science and technology into literacy, mathematics, and social studies. This year we are excited about the addition of our new Maker’s Space as well as expanded use of our outdoor learning space, Wildcat Woods.
Our mission at Weyerhaeuser Elementary School is to inspire, allow innovation and create safe and strong academic opportunities that allow all students to realize success. We value curiosity, excellence, responsibility, character, equity, diversity and tradition. We are proud of the strong academic program we offer that meets a broad spectrum of learning needs as well as the social-emotional support that is essential.
We invite families to participate with us in this educational journey. Research is clear that students are more successful when schools and families work in partnership. We welcome volunteers and encourage all to join our very active PTA. We hope you and your student will make many wonderful memories during your time as part of the Weyerhaeuser family.
Our Student Handbook should answer many of the questions you have about the operation and policies of Eatonville School District and Weyerhaeuser Elementary. However, if you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or our office at (360) 879-1650.
Have a wonderful school year!
