Welcome to Weyerhaeuser Elementary!
We are a STEM Lighthouse School that offers a strong, comprehensive academic program based on Common Core State Standards with an emphasis on literacy, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and social studies.
We support our students through collaborative grade level teams and give students a variety of opportunities to ensure that they are appropriately challenged and making progress in all core content areas. The staff is committed to working together to ensure that no child falls behind and are very skilled at communicating and teaming to meet student needs. In addition, our STEM Lighthouse designation has allowed us to pursue blended learning models and our students are very fluent in the use of Google Chromebooks, Windows computers and iPads. Students have ample access to technology, both in the classroom and in our two computer labs, and use it routinely as part of their learning. In addition, we offer the following special programs for all students:
A unique aspect of our school is our 8-acre outdoor learning space, called Wildcat Woods. Students in all grades are able to access this space as part of their hands-on learning and engage in experiences that support their learning in science, math, art, and literacy.
Beyond the school day, we offer extensive after school programs for both enrichment and support including Forestry/Outdoor Science Education, Robotics, Music/Percussion, Art, and technology (Web-design, Coding, Photography). Our Forestry/Outdoor Science Education program has served about 100 students per year over the past nearly 10 years. In addition, we offer a mentor program with parent volunteers and after-school tutoring to give students any assistance they might need.
We enjoy a highly involved and supportive parent community, including an active PTA with many events for families to participate in throughout the school year. Events have ranged from Reptileman, Bingo Night, Swimming Nights, Family Movie Nights, Dances, Trick or Trunk and much more!
Weyerhaeuser Elementary, and the entire Eatonville district are full of wonderful traditions. Here are a few that are special to Weyerhaeuser:
