Notes from the PTA Co-Presidents
The PTA hosts a holiday breakfast each year for teachers and staff as a thank you for everything they do. The breakfast is scheduled for this Thursday, December 21st – many thanks to those of you who have volunteered to bring in items for this meal. Thank you to Mary Mettee and Jessie Wise for coordinating this wonderful tradition.
Thanks to all the families who participated in the wrapping paper fundraiser and a special thanks to Maureen Taylor for setting this up a second year. Your support helped raise over $3,000 for Willard PTA!
Happy Holidays to all – we hope the winter break is a joyous and restful one for our entire Willard community. See you back on Monday, January 8th!

Lost & Found Items going to ESCCA
Please take some time to look through the Lost & Found items located in the Multi-Purpose Room … you may be surprised by what you find!
Whatever is left over by end of school on Friday, 12/22, will be donated, as per District 65 policy, to ESCCA (Evanston School Children’s Clothing Assoc).
Our fundraiser this year is Saturday, February 24, 2018. In addition to fun, food and music that evening, there will be a silent auction with many wonderful items to bid on. Additionally, every year, some of the most popular items to sign up for are what we call BUY-IN parties donated by Willard parents. For those who are not familiar with them, Buy-In parties are a fun way to support our school, spend time with friends and meet new parents. They are hosted by one or more parents or families (typically depending on the cost of throwing the party) and are activity or theme based.
Please click here for the forms (In Spanish and English) for donating either an item(s) for the silent auction or providing a Buy In party experience. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Kindergarten Lunchroom/Recess Help Needed
Sign up for as many spots as you’d like! Volunteers are needed throughout the school year. The sign up has the information you need about what is involved as well as the time (it is less than one hour). The children are doing great at lunch/recess and they love to see parents, grandparents and caregivers come in to help.
