Welcome


Congratulations Weyerhaeuser Elementary School!
 
It has been officially announced that Weyerhaeuser has been awarded this year's STEM Lighthouse Grant. This is a very prestigious award! WES is one of six (6) schools in the state awarded the grant of $20,000.00. These funds will be used to further advance the work that Weyerhaeuser Elementary is achieving in the field of STEM.
 
In the letter sent to Principal Amy Sturdivant some of the comments were; "This is a very prestigious award, so you and your staff should be proud of the work that you all are doing..... I truly enjoyed my visit and left excited for the students in your area. .......your backyard provides unique opportunities that many students don’t have access to.  I walked away feeling that your staff are passionate and enthusiastic about the work they are doing and knowledgeable and compassionate around the needs of their students." Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Sturdivant, the staff and students at Weyerhaeuser Elementary School.  Way to go Wildcats!!


Robotics Program at Weyerhauser Elementary!!

WES Robotic Students

Current reports indicate that there are nearly 2.5 times as many entry-level jobs in computer science as there are graduates to fill those positions.  Our robotics program is an extension of work students do during class time to learn computer programming basics.  Our hope with the robotics program is to allow students a fun, engaging way to apply the computer science skills they are learning in class and computer lab.  Long-term, we are hoping to send our students on to middle school equipped with 21st century skills and ready for the next step.

Currently, we have just over 60 4th and 5th graders participating in our full robotics program on a rotating basis.  We also recently began a junior robotics program, using less complex robot kits, that allows our 1st-3rd grade students the opportunity to participate as well.  We are limited by the number of robot kits we have available for use and the robot kits are fairly costly.  Both the Weyerhaeuser Elementary PTA and Avaunt Technologies have made very generous donations that have funded the cost of about 3/4 of our kits.  Staff training and some additional kits were funded by school district levy dollars that were allocated to our school.

We have several staff members that work with students in the robotics program.  They are Vince Greco, Shelley Fitzer-Surface, Matt Pederson, Tricia Whitted, Jennifer Root and Kim Vander Hoek.

School Closings & Delays Dear Eatonville Students, Families and Staff,
 
The winter months are rapidly approaching, it's a good time to share important information about school closures and other necessary precautions pertaining to severe weather conditions.
 
Although various types of emergencies may cause the temporary closing of a given school any time of the year, the winter months with the potential of ice, snow and extreme cold always carry the increased likelihood of such closures.
 
Many of our students live in areas that may receive considerably more snow and ice than most areas in town.  Because of the existence of these increased risks, we will always base our decisions to modify schedules and/or actually close school with regard to the safety of our students and staff.
 
These decisions are not always easy, and very much complicated by our varied elevations and unpredictable weather patterns.  None the less, we will try our best to make all late start or snow closure decisions by 5:00 am with specific follow-up announcements as soon as possible thereafter.
 
When snow fall is heavy, but not heavy enough to cause school closure, road conditions may make it impossible for our bus schedules to operate on time.  Please anticipate running two hours late when roads are icy or covered with snow.
 
In the event it becomes necessary to close school for an entire day due to heavy snow or other emergency conditions announcements of the closure can be found at: www.flashalert.net and www.eatonville.wednet.edu.
 
A robo call will be sent from the school district, and announcements of the closure will be broadcast over the following television and radio stations:

Television
KOMO Channel 4, KING Channel 5, KIRO Channel 7, KCPQ Channel 13

Radio
AM Band: KIRO (710), KCIS (630), KAPS (660), KIXI (880), KOMO (1000), KYCW (1090)
FM Band: KPLU (88.5) KSER (90.7) KLSY (92.5) KUBE (93.3) KBSG (97.3) KMTT (103.7)

In addition, more information on closings and delays are posted on our website at: www.eatonville.wednet.edu.  Opening and closing decisions are made collaboratively with surrounding districts and the transportation departments.  We will do our best to make our decisions in a timely manner.
 
Let's hope we won't need to use any of these systems!
 
Sincerely,
Krestin Bahr, Superintendent
