Greetings Wonderful Webster Families! Welcome to our new school year!

 

Last year was amazing! Our school is filled with talented student leaders and scholars. We are dedicated to ensuring every child is supported, challenged, and pushed to their full potential. I continue to be committed to maintaining a safe, clean, academically rigorous, and positive school environment that will allow your child to thrive and learn.

 

Daniel Webster Middle School & S.T.E.A.M. Magnet Center is experiencing success like never before! We are excited about many things, including the following:

 

  • Webster continues to develop the effective use of one to one devices (iPads) and instructional technology to support achieving student learning goals. This year iPads will be deployed during the 2nd week of school with an option to take them home. We will also begin the use of Chromebooks in classrooms.
 
  • We continue to grow our Robotics Lab, STEAM Maker Space, and Computer Science opportunities. This year we have dedicated Computer Science and Robotics Teachers. We have purchased new Lego Robotic Kits, Arduino Circuit Boards, and Makerbot 3-D printers. We are also in the process of remodeling our computer science rooms with new furniture and technology.
  • We have expanded our elective pathways to include: Design and Engineering, Visual and Performing Arts, Leadership for College Preparedness.
 
  • Our S.T.E.A.M. Magnet Center opens this year! We are committed to ensuring Webster students culminate with the 21st century skills of creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. Students in all of our small learning communities, including AVID, SAS, the STEAM Magnet, and STEAM Academy will have access to technical, art, and college pathways.
 
  • We have multiple small learning community options for enrollment including the STEAM magnet, School for Advanced Studies (SAS), Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), and community school. All students, regardless of SLC chosen, will have access to high quality core instruction, and elective/enrichment opportunities.
 
  • Students continue to have opportunities to participate in music, robotics, horticulture, intramural and interscholastic athletic competition.
 
  • Webster is part of the District’s DROPS grant and will be establishing an ECO-Club that will allow students to design, develop, and build drought resistant eco systems throughout the campus.

 

We are all in this together and need your support! Please ensure that your child is on time to school each day and complies with our school rules and dress code. There will be many opportunities to volunteer this year whether it’s by joining one of our decision making bodies like school site council, helping with school tours, supporting our staff during Teacher Appreciation Week, or helping with fund raising and donations. It is your involvement and support that will continue to help make Daniel Webster Middle School GREAT. Your child will be bringing home more information once school begins.

 

I hope your son or daughter is as excited to return to school as we are to receive them! I look forward to working side by side with you to ensure your young scholar’s success!
