Since re-opening in 1996, Jack L. Weaver Elementary School has become an outstanding learning facility with exceptional students, staff and programs. Weaver provides a creative, challenging and nurturing environment that offers students unparalleled preparation for life long learning. We are dedicated to academic excellence and we value parents, community and business members as partners in education.

 

Mission

Friends of Weaver (FOW) was founded in 1999 as a non-profit organization dedicated to acquiring, maintaining, improving, and updating technological resources at Jack L. Weaver Elementary School. FOW provides support and resources to teachers and staff so they can provide a variety of learning opportunities enabling all students to be successful. FOW achieves this through various fundraising efforts throughout the year.

 

Accomplishments

Through the generous donations of our parents and community, in 2013-2014 FOW raised over $220,000 for Weaver Technology needs! FOW has provided the following for Weaver students:

  • Yearly MIND software program licensing for Weaver students
  • Teacher on Special Assignment to instruct on MIND
  • 420 iPads for Weaver students
  • MIND Fluency Software (math facts)
  • Electronic keyboards for the music lab
  • Computer Lab in the media center for student use
  • Computers for each classroom
  • MacBook Pros for each classroom
  • Apple TV for each classroom
  • LCD projectors for each classroom
  • All-in-one copier, scanner, printers for each classroom
  • Student Response Systems

 

Our Future

Technology is constantly changing and presenting new opportunities for our children to excel in their education. It is our goal to harness these opportunities and integrate them into the learning environment at Weaver. Future goals include:

  • 2014-2015: Purchase 280 devices to achieve a one-to-one student-to-device ratio
  • 2015 and beyond: Incorporate a STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts and Mathematics) lab in the Media Center
