End of 3rd Quarter

Hello Webster Community. The year continues to fly by as the third quarter draws to an end. I want to make sure you are aware of a small change we have made to our school calendar. Webster's 3rd quarter will end on Wednesday, April 1st. Webster's 4th quarter will begin on Monday, April 13th. This change really only affects the 6th grade as they rotate quarterly through their Allied Arts rotation. I wish all of you a fun and restful spring break! Go BADGERS!

PBIS/RISE Celebration

Wednesday, April 1st marks our second PBIS/RISE Celebration. PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports which is a nationally recognized multi-tiered program for improving schools. Under PBIS, for the past five years Webster has it's RISE program. RISE stands for Respect Individual Self and Environment. We use RISE to promote teamwork, citizenship, and behavior to our students all throughout the year. Between academic and behavioral success, there is so much to be proud of with our students, so our celebration is in honor of them and their role in making Webster a great place to be. This day will be filled with fun activities, prizes, and raffles celebrating the success of our students. More information on our RISE program can be found here.
