Dear Coltrane-Webb STEM Family, We are excited to welcome back our students for another incredible year at Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary School. As we embark on the coming school year, we would like for you to know that we hold extremely high expectations for ourselves and our students, and will work each day to live up to the expectations you all hold for us as a school. Our work is about people and we have worked hard this summer to get ready for this moment. Thank you for choosing Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary School, and please let me know if I may ever be of assistance. Respectfully, Tim Taylor, Principal
Curriculum Night is Thursday, September 29th from 6:00-7:30PM. This is an evening where you'll get a good look at what it's like to be a STEM Cougar, hear details about our exciting program and get a look at our unique learning spaces. We hope you will join us!
Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary School has been recognized as a North Carolina STEM School of Distinction at the Model Level! This is the State’s highest rating for STEM Schools! To receive this honor, the programs completed an arduous application process outlining its STEM teaching and learning practices. Eighteen Schools applied for the designation; only eight were selected for site visits. During the site visits, judges toured classrooms, reviewed student work and participated in panel discussions of Students, Parents and Business Partners. Judges walked away impressed with the rigor and talent within our program. Coltrane-Webb was one to be recognized June 2nd in Raleigh. We're all very excited to have received such a distinction and quite proud of our #CougarNation #ROAR
In order to volunteer in your child’s classroom, you will need a current Volunteer Background Check on file with the County Office. A Background Check is also required if you would like to go along on a field trip with your child and for parents who invite a friend to sit with their child for lunch in the Cafeteria. Background Checks typically take anywhere between 7 to 10 business days to process and are good for 2 years. Please contact Beth Wilburn (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the office if you have any questions or if you need the necessary paperwork. Click on CCS Volunteer in 'Quick Links'.
