The staff at Waitz Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2016-2017 School Year. We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student.

Here at Waitz we take pride in developing our students, teachers, parents and administrators to be the best they can be! This will be my third year serving as Principal at Waitz, and we are soaring to new heights each year. All of our initiatives are centered around our district and campus Mission and Vision Statement which centers on student success!
