Dear Parents/Guardians:


I am delighted to be returning to Weigand Avenue STEAM Academy for the 2018-2019 school year.  In the past few weeks, I have received a great deal of support from the local community in planning a successful year.  Thank you for your enthusiasm and positive energy.


The Weigand staff is excited to begin the 2018-2019 school year with a renewed focus on our top priority – providing our children with the best education that has multiple pathways to college and career readiness.  I am happy to announce that test scores have improved slightly in both reading/language arts and mathematics.  However, we still have a long road to travel to reach academic excellence for all students.  This year, you will see your children partake in more Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics daily.  Students will set goals and tackle a myriad of challenges.  We will continue to maximize instructional time to increase student achievement, build students’ conceptual understanding of math and solidify foundational skills.


It is important that each family know what a vital role you play in the success of the school and the students.  Working together to build a common ground that puts the needs of children first is what matters.  Let’s continue to work together in preparing our students for the world that awaits them.


The first day of instruction will begin on Tuesday, August 14, 2018.  Our main gate will open at 7:40 a.m. each morning.  School starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. and dismissal at 2:19 a.m.  Students will be dismissed as follows:  Grades K-1 will be dismissed from the gate at the corner of 105th Street and Weigand Ave.  Grades 2- 5 will be dismissed from the main gate on Weigand Ave. 


We will continue to provide the supervised LA’s Best afterschool program from 2:19 – 6:00 p.m.   Students must be picked up by 6:00 p.m.  Applications for the LA’s Best program can be obtained from the LA’s Best coordinator, Krystal Toomey.  You must enroll your child in the LA’s Best Program each year.


Please know that we have an expected policy for school uniforms.  We strongly encourage our students to wear uniforms.  We recommend our school colors, royal blue and orange or an alternative navy blue and white.  Closed-toe shoes are mandatory for school. 


Kindergarten Parents:  On the first day of school, we would like for you to join your child at 8:00 a.m. in their classroom for a Kindergarten parent orientation with their teacher.
