Principal's Corner

Dear Current and Prospective Weber Families,

What a privilege and honor it is to lead the Weber community beginning in the 2017-18 school year, as Weber Elementary School enjoys a long history of academic excellence, cherished traditions, and community support.  In addition, Weber is part of the “pipeline to Pomona,” for we serve as a feeder school to two other Arvada treasures:  Moore Middle School and Pomona High School.  No doubt about it:  I am thrilled to begin my twenty-fifth year as a public educator in my new role as principal of Weber Elementary School, home of the Eagles!

At Weber, our staff members are committed to meeting the unique needs of every child.  We are, in fact, E.A.G.L.E.S.:  Educators Affecting Growth and Learning for Every Student.  Our talented, dedicated professionals represent various areas of expertise and educational experience, and we all stand poised to serve our beloved community in the name of student learning.  One of our main strategies for being able to help students succeed is our identity as a professional learning community, or PLC.  As a PLC, we work in teams to accomplish numerous goals, including identifying children’s strengths, empowering students to be active participants in their education, tracking the progress of all pupils, and reflecting on our own practices to ensure that we are employing effective, research-based strategies to help all students thrive academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.  In the name of children, we operate interdependently to promote student achievement and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all.  We do, in fact, live out on a daily basis our school mission of creating, elevating, and celebrating the success of all students—because at Weber, everybody is a somebody.

Don’t delay: Come and join us for an exciting, fun-filled year at Weber Elementary School!  We look forward to serving the students in your family, and we are confident that an education at Weber (a responsibility that we take very seriously) will provide a foundation for students to love learning, to tap into their talents, and to acquire the fundamental skills necessary to realize their hopes and dreams in life.  Together with your partnership, we will provide the conditions necessary for our students, your “eaglets,” to mature into eagles and to soar to new heights.

Looking forward to our partnership,                                                     

Lisa A. Malloy, Ed.D.

Principal, Weber Elementary School

P.S.  For six years, I proudly served as a classroom teacher at Pomona High School, where I attended graduation every spring and witnessed students receiving their diplomas at the end of their Jeffco experience.  How wonderful it is now, for the fifth consecutive year, to work with children at the other end of the educational spectrum—kindergarten through sixth grade—in order to prepare them for graduation as well as for future opportunities and careers.  As I begin my principalship at Weber, I am reminded that, indeed, education is a journey—a cumulative experience.
