Dear Warder Elementary School Present and Prospective Families,

     Let me introduce myself. My name is Matthew Hilbert, the proud principal of Warder Elementary School. While this is my first year serving as the principal of Warder, I served the Peck Elementary School community as principal for the past two years. I am ecstatic to be part of such an amazing school community! Our entire staff remains committed to meeting the individual needs of all students, and maintaining personal connections with their families.


As the demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. Our Warder Elementary community believes that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to promote success for all of our students. It is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.


As a member of our Warder family, everyone is invited to be an active member of our community. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of our PTA, or special event participant, you are encouraged to be involved! Research shows that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.


Warder Elementary School is an accredited school as recognized by the Colorado Department of Education. We are very proud of our tradition of academic excellence and our staff is committed to focusing on research-based best practices around instruction to support your child’s academic and social development.


Warder Elementary offers many different after-school enrichment opportunities for students’ academic, artistic, and athletic growth outside the classroom. These opportunities include Choir, Wildcat Theater, Running Club, Video Announcements and many more.


It is my priority to ensure that Warder continues to be one of the finest elementary schools in Jefferson County. If you are considering Warder Elementary School, I want to extend an invitation to visit! Please call our main office to set up a school tour at (303) 982-0950.


For families both present and prospective, I am committed to being available to our community. I can be reached by phone (303) 982-0202, or by e-mail, I look forward to partnering with each of you!


In partnership,


 Matthew A. Hilbert, M.A.

Principal, Warder Elementary School
