From the Principal

August 20, 2021

Dear Webb Families,

We hope you are ready to join us as we start the 21-22 school year together.  Although the past few years have been a bit unusual, we are determined to make this year a success. Since last spring we have been busy making plans and preparations to meet the academic, social, and health needs of all of our learners and we are so excited to go through this year with our students and families.

Our classroom teachers create innovative, engaging lessons that are differentiated to meet the needs of students at all different levels so that we can optimize learning. Our MTSS team works alongside our classroom teachers and provides intervention and extra support to those who are struggling in reading and/or math. This year we are excited to be offering an enrichment teacher who will be working with our students who may need to be challenged beyond the grade-level expectations. Using an inclusion model, our Special Education resource teachers provide support for students and teachers in the classroom as well as provide intervention out of the classroom for students based on need, and our self-contained special education teachers work side by side with parents, support staff, and paraprofessionals to make sure all of the students are learning and growing. Rounding out our team is a group of teachers who provide education to our students in physical education, art, music, and STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math). Our team is dedicated to supporting all of our students in many different ways to make sure we are meeting their academic needs.

A positive school culture is important to all of us here at Webb, and we have worked hard to develop activities and coordinate services to support that. Our focus is on providing a proactive approach to supporting positive behavior throughout the school and we have established many ways that we celebrate that positive behavior with exciting daily, weekly and monthly activities and events for our Webb Students. Each of our staff members works to build relationships and get to know the students so they can support them academically, socially, and emotionally. 

We view our Webb families as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences and we encourage you to become active participants in our various school programs and classroom activities. It truly takes a village to raise a child and we are committed to being part of that village along with our students and families.

Safety is always a top priority all year at Webb and we are ready to welcome our students back into school. Careful planning has resulted in procedures and equipment that will continue to be used to help keep everyone healthy and safe for as long as it is necessary.  We can’t wait to see our Webb kids back in our classrooms.

The Webb Staff looks forward to a fantastic 2021-22 school year. We hope you are excited to be a part of it as well. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call us here in the school office at 248-658-5900 or you can email the principal at corri.nastasi@hazelparkschools.org.

Sincerely,

Corri Nastasi

Principal, Webb Elementary
