If you are interested in volunteering at Williams in any way, please join us. If you would like to help out but can't make the meeting, please contact Yeny Perez at yperez@magnoliaisd.org.

Morning Drop Off

Just a reminder that morning drop off is from 7:45am - 8:20am. Breakfast is served until 8:15, so if your child eats breakfast at school, please make sure they are here by 8:15. If you bring your child to school after 8:20, you will need to park and bring your child in the front of the school, which is the entrance by the flag poles off of FM 1488 where the buses unload.

Counselor's Corner

Mrs. Gonzales, our school counselor, is continuing with the 7 Mindsets. The 7 Mindsets approach is based on the premise that success depends less on what the person knows, and much more significantly on how he or she thinks.


This month's mindset: Attitude of Gratitude/Elevate Your Perspective

Students at this age are learning when they are faced with challenges, they have a choice as to how they react. In this lesson, students will learn about the importance of focusing on the positives and elevating our perspective even when negative situations arise.


For more information about the 7 Mindsets, please contact Mrs. Gonzales at cgonzales@magnoliaisd.org or call (281) 356-6866.

Adult ESL Classes

Williams is offering free adult English classes every Tuesday and Thursday in the library from 6:00-7:00pm. There are classes for beginning and intermediate English learners. Free childcare is provided. Classes are available to any adult community member. If you know someone that is wanting to improve their English, please pass along this information.

WES Teachers

Our focus at WES is to make sure that each child gets the best education possible. All of our teachers are certified by the state of Texas and highly qualified to teach your children.
