    Summer Message from Mrs Roman

    Hello Werner Families!

    Just checking in and making sure all our Werner Scholars are still learning during the summer. Please remember to have your students practice on I-Ready and Footsteps to Brilliance. You can also visit the city library.  If your child is a curious scholar and enjoys Science and Exploration try these free websites:

    Here is another website if you are interested in finding the right book for your child and suggested books. If your child is reading above or below grade level simply click on the appropriate grade level for your child. You can also find printables to help your child log their reading.  Remember to have students read fiction and non-fiction books. Here;s the link:

    Your Online Verification Form must be completed before your child is assigned a classroom for next school year. This process can be done from home. If you don't have your verification code or need assistance, please visit the front office. Do not wait until the last minute! This process does take some time. As of today, we have 294 families/students who have completed the process out of close to 900 students. We are here to assist in any way.

    Finally,  we want to let our families know that we will be having a new bell schedule next school year and we will be having minimum days every Thursday. The Thursdays will allow our teachers to collaborate and plan for instruction and to receive professional learning. Please plan accordingly.

    New Bell Schedule:
    Regular Days
    1st - 3rd grade - 8:00 am  - 2:01 pm
    4th- 5th grade-  8:00 am  - 2:16 pm

    Minimum Days: Every Thursday and any designated District Minimum Days
    1st -3rd Grade  -   8:00 am - 1:02 pm
    4th - 5th Grade -  8:00 am - 1:04 pm

    I will continue to check in this summer. Keep on Shining Stars!

    Hello Werner S.T.A.R. Families and Community!

    We are off to a great start here at Werner Elementary. Our students are coming to school ready to learn and grow!  We are currently assessing our students using our new assessment program I-Ready and getting to know the academic needs of our students. Teachers are using this information to provide support in the classroom. As parents, you can help by ensuring that your child is reading every night. The expectation is that students take AR quizzes on the books they are reading. Every Werner Star is a Reader! In grades Pre-K through 3 we are implementing Footsteps2Brilliance. This program is free and every student in grades Pre-k thought 3rd have a Super Secret Code that gives them access to read books and activities. Every week I check to see which students are using the program and which classrooms are increasing their vocabulary/word count.  This is a district initiative that is promoting literacy opportunities for all students and getting children ready for kindergarten and beyond. Finally, I wanted to thank our parents, staff, and students for participating in our 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony! We had classes who made posters, wrote letters, and our students wore patriotic colors. This was an opportunity for our students to remember the brave men and women who ensure our freedoms and our security every day. WE at Werner believe that we are GREATER when we come together as one. Thank you for your continued support in making Werner…. “A Shining S.T.A.R. of Excellence!”
