For the 2016-2017 School Year, the N.C. Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Center recognized 7 Schools as “STEM Schools of Distinction”. Four of those Schools were selected at the “Model Level of Achievement”, the highest designation for STEM Education in North Carolina. We are thrilled that Coltrane-Webb has received this amazing honor! The STEM Recognition Program was developed by the NC Department of Public Instruction as a way to identify and recognize exemplary STEM Schools. Schools pursuing recognition underwent a rigorous application process that required: Detailed responses and evidences addressing 40 key elements that define quality characteristics of STEM education, a self-assessment of the School, identification of one best practice demonstrating educational excellence, and a site visit from a STEM Review Committee.
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.

We simply cannot do it all without our wonderful Volunteers!

Hello, Coltrane-Webb STEM Community.
Spring has sprung! As we embark on the last few months of the 2018-19 school year, let’s look forward to finishing strong together. When we have strong home, community, and school relationships, our students excel – our community excels. If you have not reached out to your child’s teacher in the recent past, please do so – we are here for you.
In my last message, I introduced “Talk About It Tuesday” and this initial implementation has gone over very well. Students are given a simple discussion prompt and along with a partner, they practice active listening and speaking skills as they work through the prompt. Some examples of past prompts have been: 1) If you had a super power, what would it be?; 2)What is your favorite family tradition and why do you like it?. I encourage you to speak with your child and use these prompts to have some interesting and fun conversations at home.
Thank you for choosing Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary School!
Tim Taylor, Ed.D.
