Welborn Elementary School

School Highlights 2015 - 2016

  • “Bless The School” – Purchased and installed Smart boards in every classroom.  Weekly food snack backpacks were provided for students, weekly celebrations for reading accomplishments and support for students making gains on various formative assessments. Toy Store was implemented and available as an incentive to students who met their MAP growth goal.
  • “Bully Free School” was implemented at Welborn during the 2013-2013-4 school year where students learned how to be fight free and bully free.  Bully report forms were made available to all students.  Bully rules are:  We will not bully others, we will try to help students who are bullied, we will make it a point to include students who are easily left out, if we know someone is being bullied we tell an adult at school and at home; at Welborn we use the “bully box” to report bullying.

Be a Welborn STAR!

We are…

Safe. I make sure the things I say and do will not hurt myself or others.

Truthful. I tell the truth to adults and students. I am honest with myself.

Accountable. I do my best. I accept responsibility for my words and actions.

Respectful. I show respect to adults and students at school. I understand that the adults at school are in charge.

This building report card is a brief summary of how your school and students are performing and the impact of your local school improvement plan. However, it should not be used as a single source to judge students or school accomplishments. No single report can tell the whole story of a district's or school's education program. This report card does not provide information about curriculum, teaching methods, special programs, the "climate" of your school or the performance of individual teachers or administrators.

In addition, this report card is not a way of "rating" or "ranking" schools. Because of the distinct community and student characteristics, direct comparison between schools or districts are invalid. Rank-ordering school districts or schools is a clear misuse of the information. Rather, the information should be used to access local strengths and weaknesses based on past performance and to plan program improvements.
