Fabulous February!

There is a lot of activity happening around Williams this February. This month we celebrate our amazing counseling team: Mrs. Laura Hernandez and Mrs. Nieves Martinez. Our counselors have taken the lead on spreading the word about social-emotional learning on campus. Please check out their School Counseling Newsletter below...thank you for all you do for our Wildcats!

We will also be celebrating the 4-day Presidents Weekend (February 17-20) and are very excited to have our parents participate in the Parent Focus Group on Wednesday, 02/22/2023 from 8:00-10:00 AM.

In order to get a better understanding of our parents' needs, we have partnered with Families In Schools to host family focus groups at Williams. Your input is very important to us and we'd like to hear from you about how we can improve family engagement at Williams. We invite our families to join us on Wednesday, 02/22 from 8:00-10:00 AM. Child care and breakfast will be provided to parents.

Finally, Valentine's Day is coming up on Tuesday, 02/14. Lots of parents have called the office with questions about Valentine cards and party snacks. Please kindly reach out to your child's teacher directly and ask them for more details about what will be happening in your student's classroom.
