Waterbury Elementary School
Welcome to Waterbury Elementary School.
Our goal is provide meaningful education to students so they have a deep understanding of reading, math, and writing. We want students to be able to think critically about the world around them. We use Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Character Counts to develop students ability to work and socialize together. We are focused on the adoption of the new Illinois Learning Standards incorporating the Common Core. We encourage communication and support between the school, home, and student.
We challenge our students to be active participants in their education. We ask students to always question, "What did I learn today?" We invite you to do the same.
We look forward to working with you to provide the best education for our students. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about our school.

Parent Tea Meetings
Parent Tea Meetings are an opportunity to have further communication between home and school. We provide them three times a year; August, January, and April. At the Parent Tea, we invite a classroom teacher to come tell a little bit about what the grade level is focusing on right now. At the end of the year, we invite a teacher from the upcoming grade to talk about what you can begin focus on during summer as you get ready for next school year.
The format will include discussion led by
-Mr. Stockhausen on building focus topics
-A grade level teacher (K, 2nd, or 4th) 10-15 minutes
-An additional grade level teacher (1st, 3rd, or 5th) - 10-15 minutes
-Opportunity for questions

Waterbury had significant construction this past summer. We are excited for everyone to see our improvements. We have updated our plumbing, installed tile floors in the hallways and classrooms, replaced the carpeting in our library, installed a new gym floor, and redesigned our front office to provide a more safe and secure entrance. See you soon.
The last day of the week is Spirit Day!!
We encourage everyone to show your school spirit and wear spirit wear or our school colors (yellow and black).
