Welcome to Weikel Elementary School!

At Weikel, we have high expectations for achievement and believe that together we can accomplish more!

We believe in achieving optimal student performance in both academics and behavior. Located on Fort Carson’s Army Base, the Weikel Staff works diligently to ensure success for each military and civilian child we serve by providing academic experiences for all students that are rigorous, relevant and help each build relationships while making real-world connections. We focus on social-emotional skill training, data to drive excellent instruction, and parent/community collaboration. Student and staff excellence is obtained by utilizing positive, proactive systems that create and maintain a safe and effective learning community. This focus enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, engaging, and nurturing environment. In 2019, our efforts to provide quality education and ensure student academic growth was recognized when we were awarded the Colorado Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award.

Not only do we focus on staff and student involvement within the educational program at Weikel, but we also strive to include our parent community as frequently as possible. We believe parental involvement is critical to our school’s success. As an identified Title I School, we diligently strive to include parents and community stakeholders who reflect the demographic composition of Weikel, including those who represent the most at-risk students. We strive to have such stakeholders as decision-makers in a broad spectrum of school decisions, including developing and monitoring the Title I schoolwide plan.

Interesting Facts: 

It’s who we are!

Our school mascot is the wolf, colors are dark blue and yellow, and our motto is “The strength of the wolf is the pack, and the strength of the pack is the wolf.” - Rudyard Kipling

Our parent involvement consists of a very energetic PTO. This group of parents and teachers enjoy planning fun!

 

P.I.E. (Parents in Education) is a vital group of parents who support our school’s educational and systemic decisions.

 

At Weikel, students and staff enjoy several school spirit weeks! One of our favorites is when we celebrate the legacy of Captain Weikel by engaging in a week’s long worth of school spirit days! 





 

At Weikel, we cherish the namesake of our school. Our school is named in honor of Captain Ian P. Weikel. Captain Weikel graduated from Fountainā€Fort Carson High School in 1993 as the class valedictorian. He attended the US Military Academy at West Point and served as a Captain in the US Army. Captain Weikel lost his life while serving in Iraq on April 18, 2006. The Board of Education felt naming our school after such an outstanding graduate of our district was a way of telling a story and honoring an exceptional young leader of both our school and military community.
