The Wethersfield Public Schools are seeking children three years of age as of October 1, 2017 to participate in the Developmental Early Intervention Program for the 2017-2018 school year. We are only taking applicants for the three-year old program at this time. This program includes children with developmental delays and same-aged children who act as peer playmates. Classes are located at Samuel Webb Elementary School. Classes are 2.5 hours per day, Monday – Thursday. Children are assigned to a morning or afternoon session and parents will be notified of the assignment upon acceptance. Please click for more.
This past week, after school, staff got together and participated in a team building challenge. The challenge was competitive and as you can see from our photos, many staff took it VERY seriously. At Webb, we believe in the essence of team and we feel that if we can continue to enhance our relationships as adults we will greatly benefit our children. This was another great day at Webb!
On Thursday November 17th, outstanding students, support staff, and parents in the Wethersfield Public Schools were recognized for their special accomplishments and contributions. Please click for more.
