Dear WES Families:
On behalf of the staff of Waterford Elementary School, I am pleased to welcome you to our school. The staff at WES is working on a number of initiatives that will assist your students in becoming well-rounded children. Additionally, the staff at WES are committed to providing your children with a nurturing environment where students are engaged in learning activities that are challenging and of high interest.
One of our areas of focus is providing all children with targeted services in ELA and Mathematics while continuing to examine and revise our instructional practice. It is imperative that all students’ needs are met regardless of whether they excel, struggle, or are on par with the developmental norm.
In an effort to decrease student discipline infractions and increase student performance within the school environment, the staff at WES has implemented a researched-based program known as School-wide Positive Behavioral Supports. With SWPBIS, students are systematically taught the behavioral expectations in every setting within the school environment. Staff members then reinforce student behavior throughout the school day with Wildcat Tickets. Students are provided with incentives for consistently making positive behavior choices.
As the year progresses, I encourage you to take an active role in the learning process. Please be sure to reach out to your child’s teacher early and often. Our teachers want the best for your children, and they are willing to work with you as a partner in your child’s education. We wish everyone a happy, healthy, and successful school year!
Patrick Davidson, Principal
