Welcome Back!!

WELCOME BACK!!  I can't believe the day is finally here to bring our Webb Elementary family back together again!  The office team has been anxiously awaiting your return and we have a lot of great things planned over the next two weeks in preparation for our students coming back!

First and foremost I want to say a HUGE "job well done" to everyone on our campus team.  Why? Because of your hard work, countless hours, sweat, tears, and yes even some blood, we were able to make it OFF the IR list this year!!!!!  That is such a testament to our team.  Though we still have much work to do to continue moving forward, it is so very important that we take the time to celebrate as well.  And this celebration includes everyone because ALL of you put forth the work to make this happen!  I just know that this year we're going to do even bigger and better things!

This year's theme is a Hollywood theme with the tagline of "Where Everyone is a Star".  I look forward to finding ways to celebrate each other, as well as our students and their families, in different and unique ways this year!

As in years past, this blog will be where I share our "Week at a Glance" and any other upcoming events for the week! This will be your go to source of information!

In Closing....

Bringing everyone back together for the first time in a school year, is always an incredibly exciting time.  I countdown the days to seeing everyone again and having our school family back in the same building.  I know that we have some exciting things planned this school year and that together we are going to change lives.  Let's get at it!
