Spring is finally here! WIS kicked off our spring thinking last night with our annual Spring Showcase. Thanks to everyone that came out to celebrate our students academic and artistic abilities. It was great to see the many interesting displays and talk to the students about things they are so interested in and passionate about. We have a very diverse and talented group of students at WIS!
Spring Break already? Even with a few snow days sprinkled in over the last month, you could literally feel the anticipation for Spring Break in our students and teachers today. WIS celebrated positive behavior in the building with our 3rd quarter iChoose movie reward day. Approximately 550 students spent a big part of their 1/2 day relaxing and watching a movie with snacks and drinks. Needless to say, we have a great group of students this year and it was awesome to be able to tell them "thanks" for just being good kids!
Our Spring Showcase has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 19th due to our most recent snow day. We hope you can join us that evening from 6:30-8:00 pm as our students show off what they have been working on in class as well as some of their talents and interests.
We hope everyone has a great Spring Break and gets a chance to get outside and enjoy some warmer weather!
It seems that winter has not forgotten about us after all. After a surprise 5 day weekend, everyone was ready to get back into the swing of things this week. The fact that it was only a 2 day school week helped keep everyone's spirits up! Today was $1 PJ day at WIS and based on the fact that the majority of our students looked like they just rolled out of bed I would call it a success! All proceeds raised today will go towards our spring field trips.
Make sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming Spring Showcase Night on Thursday, March 5th starting at 6:30 PM. This evening is a time for students to show off what they've learned to their families. We'll have a living museum, reader's theater, art and academic work displays, and student interest displays. Our spring book fair will be going on that same week so make plans to stop by.
Thanks to everyone that participated in our recent "Change a Life" fundraising effort. WIS students, parents, and staff collected over $1000 to benefit Officer Aaron Pearson and WCCF! This is another great example of how the Willard school community pulls together to help those in need!
