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!

Our Mission Statement
The Mission of Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary School is to foster each student's innate curiosity and joy of discovery.

We will achieve this by combining student-centered, collaborative and problem-based learning with active parental and community involvement.
Happy New Year from everyone at Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary!
It has been great to welcome both returning and a few new students. I hope that everyone had a relaxing winter break spent with family and friends. As a family, my wife and I took the children to see my side of the family and it was time well spent.
At Coltrane-Webb STEM, we strive each day to meet the academic, physical, social and emotional needs of all students. As a particular focus for the remainder of the year, we are going to supplement communication skill building by introducing “Talk About It Tuesday”. Each Tuesday students will be given a simple prompt and through teacher facilitation and questions stems, students will interact with one another in hopes of developing and supplementing stronger positive communication skills within all of our children.
Further, as the up and down winter climate continues, please remember to ensure your child has the appropriate closing for each weather occasion. If assistance is needed, please know that support is available from school. Additionally, winter jackets and sweaters/hoodies must comply with our uniform policy if your child is going to wear them all day while in school.
Thank you for choosing Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary!
Tim Taylor, Ed.D.
