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

Mission

Accomplishments

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.
