Spotlight on Weber High School

A letter from the principal

Weber High School Community,

August is a favorite time of year for me as it signals cooler weather is on the way and it means our eerily quiet building will soon be bustling with students! There are very few sights and sounds better than a noisy, bustling school. Students are filled with excitement as they catch up with their peers, and teachers are energized after being out of the building for two months. The start of a new school year is the beginning of many new experiences, the continuation of grand traditions, and the opportunity to bring about positive changes. There is no better time to be a Warrior!

As I have spent the summer learning about Weber High, what makes it great, and where we can do things a little differently, I have appreciated the vice-principals and many people who have stepped up to help facilitate a plan of growth. This plan includes our entire Weber cone which is comprised of seven elementary schools and three junior highs. Together as a cone, we will be working towards our initiative of, “Continual Success Through Learning, Growth and Resiliency.” As a cone, we are committed to improving the educational process by addressing the needs of the whole child. Every student is important and with the combined efforts of educators, parents and community members, we will ensure our students are improving in all areas. As principals, we will be sharing with you this process and including you, as your role is just as vital as our educators.Thank you for your support as we work together to make this happen!

As principal of Weber High, I have great pride in our school, our cone and our community. I love the feeling I get every day as I pull into the parking lot. I want our students to feel the same excitement, enthusiasm as I do and I want them to take ownership in Weber. As an administrative team, we want you to also take pride in Weber High. We want visitors coming to our school to see, feel and know they are in Weber territory when they get close to our campus. Weber High banners will be hung on poles on the main streets leading to our school. A big thank you goes out to our PTSA who is spearheading a fundraiser for these banners.

I am excited for the opportunity to be the principal at Weber High and work with the best teammates in Utah which includes our faculty, staff, students, and community members. I appreciate the groundwork that has been laid by the Weber High principals before me. There are many great things happening academically with the introduction of the International Baccalaureate program, AP classes, concurrent enrollment, and CTE opportunities to name a few. There are many activities, clubs, programs, and athletics to be involved in. We will STAND and stay WEBER STRONG! I look forward to meeting you, supporting our teams and clubs, watching our students perform in our fine arts programs as well as the upcoming Newsies musical, and the many other events that have filled my calendar.  It is the BEST feeling to be a Warrior!
