Welcome to John Weldon Elementary where all students are invited to LEAD, LOVE and LEARN. The John Weldon faculty and staff proudly serves a diverse group of students inspiring them on a daily basis to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Students are provided with opportunities to grow and learn in all academic areas while also developing in their ability to think critically and overcome challenges. Creating lifelong learners eager to solve new problems and explore problems through a creative lens inspires our work.
In addition to serving our students, John Weldon enjoys the opportunity to welcome all families into our broader school community. We enjoy partnering with our parents and families to not only meet the needs of our individual students but to also serve the needs of all the members of our John Weldon “Wolf Pack.”
As a District focused on continuous improvement, each of our 23 schools develops a site-based school improvement plan every year. The plan outlines the goals and actions the building plans to take throughout the year to improve various areas of performance.
A pyramid of intervention is a tiered approach to prevention and intervention strategies to support students both academically and behaviorally. The pyramid uses a variety of strategies and techniques to help all students stay on the right track. The foundation of the pyramid offers Tier 1 supports for all students. Tier 2 interventions provide additional support for smaller groups of students who need more targeted help. Tier 3 provides the most intensive supports for individual students when Tier 1 and 2 interventions have been unsuccessful. Our schools review and update their pyramid on a regular basis to ensure new strategies are incorporated and all are aligned with best practice.
