Weber School District is Celebrating National School Counseling Week. We appreciate all our School Counselors! They support our students and prepare them to be College and Career Ready.
Congratulations to Chris Zimmerman, Shelly Bush and Emily Oyler from the Weber School Foundation on receiving the Weber School District's E+ Team Award! Through events like the Christmas Tree Jubilee, the Foundation helps raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for students and teachers in our district. These donations help pay for such things as our all-abilities playgrounds, iPads for autistic children, classroom and teacher grants, and field trips to educational sites. It's with great pride we recognize this amazing team and their contributions to our schools!
Rick Favero, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at his home in Taylor. Rick has served on our school board for the past four years and just won re-election this past November for his second four-year term.
We are deeply saddened to lose such a wonderful man! Rick has been a leader in our community and in his church for many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Andrea, and the rest of their family as they mourn the loss of their husband, father and grandfather.
This is certainly a profound loss for them and it is a tremendous loss to the Weber School District. Rick has served so faithfully on our board and he will be greatly missed.
This past week, Jack Hodson, received the Head Custodian Spotlight Award. Jack has been a custodian in our district for 40 years! He began at Roy High in 1977 as a General Custodian and Asst. Head Custodian. He then moved to H. Guy Child as Head Custodian. He has worked at Green Acres, Rocky Mountain Jr. and then Fremont High in 2001. Jack continues to serve Fremont and our district!
We congratulate Jack on this amazing accomplishment and we are honored to have him as part of our team here at the Weber School District!
I appreciate this opportunity to work in Weber School District as Assistant Superintendent. Let me introduce myself: I’m Kevin Sederholm and I have worked for the district for 29 years. I started with the district as an elementary teacher. I taught at Pioneer, Valley, Country View and Bates Elementary. I’ve taught every grade in elementary except for kindergarten. I then became a principal and worked at Kanesville, Pioneer, and Bates. I’ve been the Human Resource Director for the past six years. Weber School District has always been my home--going through as a student myself (my wife Kelly is also a product of WSD), to raising our six children within the district’s education system. I have truly enjoyed my career thus far and look forward to new experiences.
As the Human Resource Director I have the unique opportunity to work with and see many other districts. I have worked with these districts recruiting, comparing different policies and procedures, and resolving different personnel issues. As a result of these interactions I have come to appreciate our district immensely. We work with good people! We have employees who work tirelessly on behalf of our students in every department. Weber School District parents get involved with our schools and help their children to succeed. These are people who always put our students’ best interests first. As a result, we have a great district, but also a district that we will continue to try and improve. Again, I look forward to working with you as we all strive to make our children’s education the best it can be.
Congratulations to Erica Nish on being selected as 5A Coach of the Year by the Utah Volleyball Coaches Association. In her first year as head coach of the Weber Warriors, she led the team to their first Region 1 title since 1993, and a third place finish in the State tournament. A pretty amazing accomplishment! A highly skilled player herself while in college, Erica brings a tremendous amount of talent and leadership to Weber, and we are happy to have her as part of our team!
Bonneville High School competed in the 17th Annual Weber State Automotive Written Test. This year 30 high schools from the Western Region (Oregon, Texas, Idaho, Nevada and Utah) competed for a chance to be one of few high schools to compete at the Hands on Test on February 9, 2017. The seniors on the Bonneville High automotive team placed 1st out of all 30 high school. This is the second year in a row they have received this award! Way to go Bonneville High Automotive!
This month, the Weber School District presented the Two Rivers High School Team the E+ Teaching Award. The team consists of: Amy Anderson and Annette Pham.
These two teachers do amazing things in their classes to build relationships, help students see relevance in the subject matter and strive for increased rigor. Amy and Annette constantly strive to address the needs of the whole student. They have sacrificed their lunchtime to open a school store where they provide a safe place for students to have a snack, enjoy a healthy conversation and make a connection with a caring adult.
They have also spearheaded activities like, Giving Thanks for Thanksgiving, planting trees on our campus, organizing a student council and partnering with the Kiwanis Club to organize a Key Club at Two Rivers. These wonderful teachers have organized a food pantry and have helped students put together grub bags that contain an easy recipe and the ingredients that go with it.
We congratulate them on this amazing accomplishment, and we are honored to have them as part of our team here at the Weber School District!
