Principal's Message

Dear Families of Elsa Widenmann Elementary,


Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! We are off to a fantastic start at our Award Winning Full Service Community School! 

For the past 6 years as the proud principal here at Elsa Widenmann, building leadership qualities in our students has been facilitated by our school-wide use of Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies (PBIS), known to our students as "The Widenmann Way".

Widenmann Wildcats take pride in themselves when they demonstrate the Widenmann Way:


1.  Be Respectful      2. Be Responsible        3. Be Safe


The Widenmann staff is committed to preparing your child for the 21st century through our continued use of Pearson Math, I-magine Learning, Accelerated Reader, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). This year we have also adopted a new Language Arts curriculum that is directly connected to the Common Core Standards for all grades.

We appreciate the support that you as Wildcat parents will be giving us throughout the year with your child's learning, both at home and at school, and will look to see you at all the school events that are calendared for this amazing year of "LEARNING SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY!!"


Thank you all and lets make this another stellar year!

Principal Hatter
