About Webster

Welcome to Webster!

I am so glad that you decided to explore our school website to learn about the vibrant program we are creating for the Webster Community! We are committed to making Webster a place where people feel connected to their community and feel a part of the school community. Please know that as we develop our school, we welcome you to join us to get to know the Webster community and to help define who we want to be and how we will make it a reality. Connect with us through this website, Twitter (@MPS_Webster), Facebook or email (please email me at Ginger.Kranz@mpls.k12.mn.us to get on our email list).

Connectedness is important—all of us need to have a sense of belonging and when kids come to school each day, we will involve them in a myriad of strategies to build this connectedness. From everyone being greeted when they arrive at school, to students working collaboratively to solve problems; from community members working side-by-side with students to develop a rich culture of literacy in the school, to students reaching out to local businesses and organizations to join them in their educational journey—we will make sure students know that we care about them and that each student has something to contribute to our school and larger community.

I love being an educator. I love sharing in the learning process and challenging each other to grow. Growing, fostering growth, witnessing growth, and celebrating growth is a great way to spend one’s days. I hope you will join us to grow together, supporting the amazing curiosities and passions that children bring to each day!
