Principal's Welcome Letter

  • Dear Families,


    Welcome to Weddington Elementary School and our wonderful Weddington community. Weddington Elementary School continues to be one of highest performing schools in the state of North Carolina, with a North Carolina School Report Card grade of an A. Along with rigorous instructional practices, our school concentrates on growing global leaders and serving our local communities. Students at our school experience an enhanced global studies curriculum, comprised of media, guidance, computer exploration, STEAM, coding, and international studies. We focus on the EmpowerED framework where all learners grow into leaders through connect, collaborating, and creating.  In addition, students are involved with the development, advertising, collection, and donation of all school service learning projects. We have formed partnerships with numerous organizations, such as United Way, Carolina Paws, The Food Bank of North Carolina, Urban Ministries of Charlotte, Bright Blessings and many more.


    Our Dual Language Spanish classrooms are added highlight of our school. Students in our Dual Language classrooms experience a rich immersion of the Spanish language and culture while learning to speak fluently in Spanish. Students for the Spanish classrooms are chosen by a lottery system in Kindergarten. For further information about our Dual Language program, you may visit the Dual Language/Immersion link on our Weddington School website.

    Weddington Elementary School is comprised of highly qualified staff members that are committed to providing differentiated instruction, while addressing the individual needs of all students. The staff takes great pride in the positive relationships that are formed with students and families, recognizing the relationships are a critical component of student success. Our Weddington stakeholders also play an integral role in the accomplishments of our school. We are extremely proud of the substantial amount of parent volunteers who assist our teachers, students, and in various areas around the school. The Weddington Elementary PTO is dedicated to ensuring our students, staff, families, and community are included in school wide and family events. Monthly events provide families the opportunity to assemble with other Wildcat families.


    We understand a child’s transition to a new school can be an emotional and exciting time. The Weddington School Counselor is available to assist with this transition. The School Counselor coordinates all Character Education lessons, Anti-Bullying lessons, and student celebrations, while facilitating social groups to assist our Wildcats.

    We look forward to meeting all of our Wildcat families during the upcoming school year.
