Education of the Whole Child:  At Weber, we believe in a whole-child approach to learning.  More specifically, each child in our community deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged. That's what a whole-child approach to learning, teaching, and community engagement entails.  To that end, please see our "Clubs & Programs" tab to see a list of before- and after- school clubs that we offer to enrich academic learning here at Weber.

School Goal for 2018-19
:  Increasing students' performance in Reading in order to increase their performance and skills in other areas.

Major Strategy for Increasing Student Achievement: 
 We will operate as a Professional Learning Community or PLC.  As part of a PLC, we have two primary foci:--a focus on learning and a focus on culture.  

1) Focus on Learning:  Analyze data and implement effective, research-based strategies, aligned with rigorous, standards-based outcomes, to promote student achievement
2) Focus on Culture:  Create optimal conditions for learning that address the needs of the whole child so that students can thrive.

"Weber Elementary is a true hidden gem!  The school is small enough that each student can be recognized for their strengths and…the teachers and staff present a cohesive unit and work together to ensure that the students learn through positive reinforcement!  Parents are consulted on matters of importance.  Suggestions are always thoughtful and insightful."
--From Family-School Partnership Survey 2017-18

"A school above the rest... So proud to be at Weber!"

"Inviting... We feel welcomed every time we enter the building.  I love this school...."

A Note from Our Assistant Principal, Mrs. Adria Maestas:

I am excited to continue my work as the full-time assistant principal serving Weber Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year. Over the past two years I have enjoyed getting to know the Weber community and have grown to deeply respect the dedicated teaching staff and school community known for their strong partnerships and commitment to all Weber students.

I am eager to continue to support the traditions and excellent educational opportunities that Weber provides to all students. I look forward to spending more time with all of our students to get to know them as individuals with varying learning styles and interests. Watching students learn and grow, encouraging them to be their best, and celebrating their successes alongside them is what puts a smile on my face every day.

As I look to the year ahead, I am excited to strengthen our school and family partnerships. I cannot wait to share in all of the wonderful things students experience throughout their days here at Weber. Please know that I am also here to work with you and your children should they need any help navigating the school day. I have an open door and welcome your feedback, insights, and ongoing communication so we can best meet your child’s needs. 

Once again, I am excited to be a part of the Weber Elementary team and look forward to serving our staff and students. It is going to be a great year! 

-Adria Maestas



Bookmarks Dear Current and Prospective Weber Families, What a privilege, honor, and joy it is to continue to lead the Weber community in 2019-20, my third year as principal and chief learner of Weber Elementary School!  At Weber, we enjoy a long history of academic excellence, cherished traditions, and community support. In addition, we are part of the “pipeline to Pomona,” where we serve as a feeder school to two other Arvada treasures:  Moore Middle School and Pomona High School. No doubt about it: I am thrilled to begin my twenty-seventh year as a public educator in my role as principal of Weber Elementary School, home of the Eagles!

At Weber, our staff members are committed to meeting the unique needs of every child, and we collectively take responsibility for educating all students, our students.  We are, in fact, E.A.G.L.E.S.:  Educators Affecting Growth and Learning for Every Student.  Our talented, dedicated professionals represent various areas of expertise and levels of educational experience, and we all stand poised, with a shared vision, to serve our beloved community in the name of student learning. One of our main strategies for being able to help students succeed is our identity as a professional learning community, or PLC. As a PLC, we work in teams to accomplish numerous goals, including identifying and leveraging children’s strengths, empowering students to be active participants in their education, tracking the progress of all pupils, and reflecting on our own practices to ensure that we are employing effective, research-based strategies to help all students thrive academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. With children at the center of all decisions, we operate interdependently to promote student achievement and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all. We do, in fact, live out on a daily basis our school mission of creating, elevating, and celebrating the success of all students—because at Weber, everybody is a somebody.

Don’t delay: Come and join us for an exciting, fun-filled year at Weber Elementary School!  We look forward to serving the students in your family, and we are confident that an education at Weber (a responsibility that we take very seriously) will provide a foundation for students to love learning, to tap into their talents, and to acquire the fundamental skills necessary to realize their hopes and dreams in life.  Together with your partnership, we will provide the conditions necessary for our students, your “eaglets,” to mature into eagles and to soar to new heights. Let’s get started today!

It’s always a great day to be an Eagle, Lisa A. Malloy, Ed.D.
