We, at Weed Elementary School, believe that it is our responsibility to provide quality educational programs which foster significant academic achievement for ALL students in a safe environment characterized by mutual respect and acceptance of the individual differences.
Congratulations to Michael Lerma for placing in the top 10 in the Siskiyou County Sumdog contest. Sumdog is an online math game in which students compete with other schools to see who can answer the most questions correctly.
