DETERMINATION is the continued focus of the month for January!
Determination: The Yaguar (Jaguar) is one of our Silas Willard Wildcats. The jaguar represents the incredibly important skill of demonstrating determination. For the purpose of our monthly focus in December and January we are going to define the idea of determination in the following manner:
Deciding to reach your goal even when it is hard
Students of the Month Celebrated with a special luncheon!
Our 1st Semester Student Growth Assembly was a SUCCESS!!
Students were able to earn a foot of tape for each assessment demonstrating individual growth from the fall to winter time period! Over 1,000 ft. of duct tape was used to make this happen! Way to go, Wildcats!

January 17-20: Be the CHANGE collection starts for Give Back, Galesburg!
January 27: Gold Out Game GHS vs. UTHS
Reminders about arrival and dismissal to school:
- Pull ALL the way up in the "U" area. Trust the process and follow the staff members' guidance in the "U" area pick-up. If a staff member is asking you to pull up or motioning for you to pull up, simply do so. We are all doing our best to get you in and out of arrival/dismissal as quickly and safely as possible.
- Pulling up all the way through the "U" area allows us to get more cars off of Seminary St.
- Be mindful of our crossing guards as they are doing their best to provide safe crossing for all of our Wildcats.
- If you are exiting car and parking. Please make sure to use the sidewalks and navigate to them rather than walking through the center of the parking lot. This is dangerous and blocks traffic in the "U" area.
