Jan 10th PTA News

Willard families, as we return to school, don’t forget about the Illinois 5Essentials survey, a tool we use to help our efforts at continuous improvement here at Willard. Our fourth and fifth graders have taken the survey at school, our teachers will take the survey at an upcoming faculty meeting, and parents are encouraged to take the survey at this link: https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/

The survey window will be open for a couple more weeks, and we will send reminders through our weekly Friday Folder.

Thanks, and Happy New Year!

Jerry Michel, Principal

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.
