Message from the Principal
I am very happy to be serving a school where staff strives to recognize the potential in all learners and to translate that into performance. Weatherbee takes on a team approach to teaching and learning that encourages the academic, social and emotional development of the whole child. At Weatherbee School we build teams of teachers who love kids and love what they teach, and it shows in the energy they bring to their instruction.
We appreciate the strong and engaged parental community that supports Weatherbee School . You make a difference in your child’s education through time donated in the classroom or through support with homework and extending the learning experience.
George B. Weatherbee’s website is full of great information and we recommend you check the website often for news and updates. Please read our weekly newsletter, the “The Weatherbee Bzzz”. All Weatherbee families will receive a weekly email to urge you to read the newsletter. This is our primary mode of communicating important announcements and event information to parents/guardians, and we appreciate you taking the time to “stay in the loop!”
We also have our “Electronic Backpack”. The “Electronic Backpack” is an easy way for families to access flyers about activities, programs, and events being promoted by non-profit organizations in the community. You will also find school related flyers about events and programs.
When it comes to the learning environment, the “Weatherbee Way” is a part of life here at school, and it guides our behavioral choices in every aspect of the school environment. Students take pride in showing the “Weatherbee Way” when they fully participate and appropriately participate in each school setting. We have clear expectations and students appreciate and strive to meet those expectations.
Weatherbee faculty and staff are pleased to partner with you to better serve you and your child this school year. Please feel free to contact me or any member of the Weatherbee School Team with questions or concerns. With your support, we will continue to develop the very real gifts and talents of all of the students at the George B. Weatherbee School!
