Grandparents Day Celebration

We will be having a special Grandparents Day celebration on Friday, September 9th from 9:15-9:45am in our classroom. All grandparents are welcome to come in, tour our room, and read with their grandchild. We will also have a special craft to give them. Crafts will be sent home for any grandparent unable to attend! We hope some grandparents can join us!

Bear Share Fun Run!

Don't forget about our Bear Share Fun Run!!! Our school's goal is $23,500!


This is our BIGGEST and ONLY fundraiser of the year!! Please work on collecting donations to fund our school's technology goals! We celebrate all of these collected donations by having a big Fun Run on September 16th.


Our team name is the Williams Speedy Eagles! The kids chose and voted on this name.


Prizes are awarded for students who donate $5, $15, $30, $60, and $100 (or $160 for families with more than one child here). See the paperwork for details!


It would be great if we could have everyone in our class donate at least $5!!


We are also collecting NEW teddy bears to donate to local fire stations. These will be used to comfort local children who need to be transported in an ambulance. You can send the bears in anytime!


Visit the Bear Share Fun Run website here!
