Watson Road Elementary
Principal’s Message
Welcome to Watson Road Elementary
 
 
Watson Road Elementary has a population of 540 students with 22 classes.  Of these students, about 75 percent are in catchment with an additional 25 percent out-of-catchment.  The out-of-catchment students attend our school through parent choice.
 
The school has a strong focus on meeting the needs of every student.  We have a well-established “Model of Support” based on the “Response to Intervention Model.”  This ensures that support is timely and appropriate to meet the needs of the child.
 
Overall, students in our school perform at a high level academically, based on numerous measures that are tracked on an ongoing basis through our School Improvement Plan.  Parents are active members of the “School Planning Council” which reviews the plan on a regular basis.
 
Additionally, our school has an active Parent Advisory Council that supports the school in numerous ways.  They support field trips by paying for bus costs, purchase additional resources to support the school, coordinate the hot lunch program, put on movie nights and dances, as well as a yearly fun fair to name a few initiatives.  The PAC meets monthly and encourages all parents to attend.
 
The teachers and staff are committed to providing students with numerous exciting learning opportunities.  They coordinate a variety of field trips, invite guest speakers into the school, and put on a variety of activities throughout the year to support physical fitness.  The school also engages in a number of charitable events throughout the year in order to give back to the community.
 
At Watson Road Elementary, all students are encouraged to be Kind, Safe, Responsible, and Respectful Learners.
