From the Principal


WIS celebrated our 9th annual Veterans Day assembly on Tuesday and we were honored to have over 80 veterans from our school community in attendance.  There are very few things we do as a building that is more moving and meaningful to our students than honoring our veterans.  We know their service and sacrifice is the core of what makes our country so great!  Thank you to all our guests that were in attendance and a special thanks to Mr. Jeff Wead for sharing his thoughts as our veteran speaker.
  
The 2nd annual Willard Intermediate 5K Color Run will be next Saturday, November 22nd at 8 a.m.
 This will be in conjunction with the many other Christmas on the Frisco activities going on next weekend here in Willard so come out and start your day with a fun and colorful 5K!  Packet pickup/registration will be at WIS on Friday the 21st from 5-8 pm, and again starting at 7 am on race day.  Cost is $20 for 5-17 years old and $25 for 18 and up.

In conjunction with our building theme this year, "We are Willard", WIS has identified several ways for our students and staff to give back to our community.  Over the last two weeks WIS has been collecting used shoes to support Sole Food which in turn raises funds for Friends Against Hunger.   Although both of these organizations are locally based, they benefit people in need throughout the world.  This WIS effort culminated Thursday afternoon with students, parents, and teachers volunteering their after school time to help package 36,000 nutritious meals that will be distributed throughout the world by Friends Against Hunger.  Thank you to everyone that supported these efforts and a special thanks to Ms. Harron for making this opportunity happen for WIS!


Thank you to all our parents that came out to our parent/teacher conferences this week.  With one quarter of the school year behind us, this was a great opportunity for parents to find out how their student is progressing.  Thanks to our PTO and parent volunteers for providing an awesome dinner for us on Tuesday evening!  Mrs. Staley put on another great Book Fair that ran in conjunction with conferences.  Thanks to everyone that stopped by to support this effort.

On Tuesday, Mrs. Chappell and her thespian students from the High School stopped by to present several thought provoking and encouraging skits in conjunction with Red Ribbon Week.  It is always fun to see former students that have grown up return to the building in an effort to give back to our school community.  They did a great job and the messages they presented were well received by WIS.

Wednesday saw our first iChoose reward day of the year.  Students were rewarded for their positive behavior with fun and games in our gym along with snacks and prizes.  Congratulations to the 8 students that won a well deserved trip to Silver Dollar City in the spring.  We encourage all of our students to continue making positive behavior choices!

Friday afternoon the entire building took some time to celebrate classroom fall parties.  This tradition at WIS gives students a break from their normal school routine and allows them some time to eat snacks, play games, and have some relaxed fun with their classmates.  Thanks to homeroom parents for making this happen!

A reminder that school will not be in session next Monday or Tuesday.  We hope everyone has a safe weekend and we will see you on the first Wednesday of November!
