Willow Parent Bulletin #32

Finishing Strong

You can do it! We can do it! It's the spring fever- baseball started- almost finished- time of the year. Whew- everyone is crazy busy! We need your help in keeping your wildcat focused on these last few weeks. Teachers are assessing skills so we know where to start next year. ( yes, we are well into planning for next year!) While we want your children outside in that fresh air and off the screen, please make sure he/she is logged in and participating on Zoom (the whole time) and completing his/her See Saw and other assignments. It's not busy work. It helps us guide upcoming instruction and evaluate your child's progress.

Our annual ACES ( All Children Exercising Simultaneously) activity will be on May 1st at 9:30 AM. If you have a remote learner, come join us outside on Willow Hill for some fun activities and a little dancing. We'll be out with the in-person crew, safely distanced. Start looking for your boogie shoes and sun glasses!

Don't forget the deadline to write your parent letter for next year is June 1st. We appreciate your input on your wildcat's learning style, strengths, interests, and friends who would be (and would not be) good classmates. We do not take requests for specific teachers... they are all amazing!

Happy Mother's Day to all the special women in our Willow community and a shout out to those men who also do both roles. We appreciate all of you!

District iPads/devices/hot spots

All tech borrowed from Willow needs to be returned by the end of the year. To make this easier, in-person students will leave their iPads on their last in-person day (June 2nd). Please send the cord and brick with your child that day.

If you forget to send something in on June 2, or have a remote student, device turn in for everyone else will be:

Thursday, June 3: 12 PM-4 PM

Friday, June 4: 8AM-3 PM

When you come to return a device, you will need to stop at the cleaning station, power check station, and then either turn it in or fill out an insurance claim if anything is damaged. Mrs. Gardner will send you an email and accompanying video with all the information.
