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 2015-2016 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 new 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.  We also will be focusing on fully implementing our new math curriculum.

In addition to improving reading, writing, and math 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 this website, 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 frequently with your child’s teacher.  Please take a few moments to browse this informational site and become more familiar with Webb Elementary School.

I would like to thank the entire Webb community for the opportunity to work with you and your children.  I am honored to be the principal of Samuel B. Webb 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 and strong values instilled here.    

Sincerely,

Michael P. Verderame

Principal

On May 19, SDMS students Skyped with author Kwame Alexander after school in the SDMS Library Media Center. Students had an opportunity to ask Kwame questions about his book The Crossover, his latest release Booked, his writing process, and his work with LEAP for Ghana, an organization that he founded that has "provided literacy training for teachers, facilitated girls' empowerment workshops" and established a library that went from to 1 to 5,000 books! He also told students about his most influential college professor, poet Nikki Giovanni, dropped some hints about the prequel he's writing to The Crossover, and described the excitement and glamour of attending the Newbery Medal Award ceremony--the "Oscars" for writers!

Third graders at Emerson-Williams had a great time visiting the Wethersfield Public Library.
Twenty students gathered in the SDMS Library after school on Wednesday, May 18 to talk with and ask questions of former Atlanta Falcon football player turned sports writer Tim Green. Tim spoke about his educational journey as an English major at Syracuse University, his life in the NFL, the importance of education, and his career as a writer. He also fielded questions from aspiring SDMS authors about the process of getting published, finding an agent, and the book he's most proud of--Unstoppable. On May 19, students will have the opportunity to Skype with author Kwame Alexander, award-winning poet and novelist. The author Skypes were funded through the generosity of SDMS PAC.
Wethersfield Public School students are in the midst of taking the state SBAC Testing. The ability of our Charles Wright students to take the assessments on their classroom Chromebooks has brought our students greater comfort and familiarity with the process. The assessments were shortened this year to just one English Language Arts (ELA) assessment and two Math assessments further lowering any test anxiety.
On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, Charles Wright third graders combined a walking field trip through Old Wethersfield with a visit from the Pequot Museum. The Wethersfield Police Department provided safe crossing of Silas Deane Hwy so that our students could journey past Stillman, the Wethersfield Board of Education Building, through Old Wethersfield and finally meet up with the docent from the Pequot Museum at the Webb Barn. It was a beautiful warm day for combining a walking tour of town and learning about Connecticut's indigenous people and culture.
