Welcome to WES

At Wayne Elementary School we create a safe and caring environment for all students to grow and learn.

We work towards this mission in a variety of ways:

  • School Wide Positive Behavior Framework
  • Staff and Support Personnel
  • Variety of learning opportunities
  • Partnership with our families and community

Challenging Learning Expectations

We strive to “unlock the potential in all of us”

  • Academically we have a strong core program with supports so all students can not only access, but reach their full potential to achieve.
  • Socially we use the PBS framework to create a culture that is inclusive and respectful.
  • Emotionally we focus on the whole child which encompasses academics and social skills - Second Step.
  • Morning Meeting and Closing Circle.

School Wide Positive

School-Wide Positive Behavior is a framework that educators use to create positive school culture through evidence-based interventions and supports. It is a system of tools and strategies for defining, teaching, acknowledging appropriate behaviors, and correcting undesirable behaviors.
