WSMS Principal Newsletter
November 9, 2022
I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend. While this is a short week, it is such an important week as we observe Veteran's Day this Friday. This Friday, we will have a set up of America's White Table on our stage as a tribute to all of our staff and community members who have served our country. For those who served, we here at Willow Springs thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
As we head into Thanksgiving Break, it has been heartwarming to see our students signing pages of thanks to our staff members. I am so excited to be able to give these pages to our teachers as they head into Thanksgiving Break. We also would like to encourage our students to get all of their makeup work turned in before they go into break so that they not have a bunch of work hanging over their heads for break.
As a reminder, 7th grade vision and hearing screenings are right around the corner. More information about that and many other items can be found below.
