Samuel B. Webb Elementary School

Samuel B. Webb Elementary School was re-opened as a Pre-school through Grade 6 school during the 2005-2006 school year. The community members of this school came together to create a dynamic school with a positive culture for learning and risk taking for all students.   The school has been developed over the past six years to provide students with opportunities for growth and development in areas such as academic and social and emotional growth.

The Mission of the Samuel B. Webb Elementary School community is to maximize the potential of our students and help them to become lifelong learners. The School Community will do this by:

  • Providing a variety of learning and enrichment experiences
  • Balancing programs to create balanced children
  • Integrating core academic skills
  • Building character to create strong citizens
  • Supporting our children as they grow and develop as individuals

The Webb faculty and staff are committed to providing students with a quality education. Each year the administrative and teaching staff review students’ academic strengths and weaknesses based on an in-depth review of CMT results and other assessment data, and establish school-wide goals for the following year. Once the school goals are established, the school-based teams work together to review students’ progress regularly.


Principal's Message

Dear Webb Students and Parents,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!  This promises to be a very exciting, challenging, educational, and busy year.  Our goal as a staff at Webb School is to provide the highest quality education in a safe and nurturing environment where students are encouraged to reach their full potential.    

As your school principal I spent the majority of the summer collaborating with district administration to research ways to improve our schools.  I am excited about some of the initiatives that are taking place at Webb to improve student achievement.  Our teachers will continue to enhance their craft in the area of Reading and Writing Workshop.  They will also continue to collaborate to analyze data, create meaningful assessments, and plan quality instruction across all content areas.  We also will be focusing on fully implementing social thinking lessons in all K-2 classrooms as well as creating a new school sensory room and enhanced student lounge.  Finally, we will continue our focus on the whole child and utilize Yoga4 Classrooms to help prepare our students and staff for ultimate success in the classroom.

In addition to improving academic and social skills, our students will continue learning about the Webb Way To Be. The four components to this are:  Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Productive, and Be Safe.  Teachers will devote time during their morning meetings to explore these four principles while emphasizing the importance of good character.  At Webb students will always be reminded to treat others the way they would want to be treated.

Within the district website and Facebook page, as well as our Webb Facebook page, you will be able to stay current on up-to-date events that are taking place at Webb.  You will also be able to view our staff directory so that you are able to communicate with your child’s teacher.  Please take a few moments to browse our website and become more familiar with Webb. 

I would like to thank the entire Webb community for the opportunity to work with you and your children.  I am honored and humbled to be the principal of such an amazing school.

The Webb Elementary School community is: students, parents, teachers, staff, and friends working together to provide the best learning environment possible.  As a school community we put children first.  Please stop by and visit Webb often so we can share the love of learning.
