Hello Willowdale Families!
Top 5 things to note:
1. Strings Concert
Our 4th and 5th Graders sounded great last night under the direction of Mrs. Dymond! Thanks for working so hard with our young musicians, Mrs. Dymond!
2. Increased Traffic
With the colder weather, we have more individuals being picked up and dropped off at school. Please bring your patience and watch out for students as well as other cars. In the parking lot, safety is our top priority! #BeKind
3. Winter Break
We will dismiss at 3:45 on December 21 for Winter Break. Classes resume at 8:30am on January 7, 2019!
4. December 20 is Pajama Day at Willowdale!
We are 1/2 way to filling up our Wonderful Wildcats ticket tower for the SECOND time already this year! Remember - we still will have specials and go outside that day. #WildcatsROAR
5. Willowdale Fun Family Event with the Lancers!
Our Swing Choir will perform the National Anthem before the game on February 24! Check out the attached flyer and click here https://lancers.sportngin.com/register/form/841977200 to purchase your tickets! Bonus: Swing Choir students will get free admission!
The PTO has found another easy-peasy way to raise funds for the programs and materials our students use here at school! When you do your shopping on amazon.com, just use this link to smile.amazon and help us out! https://www.smile.amazon.com/ch47-0818768
You should have received an email yesterday if you ordered the Willowdale "I Love Public Schools" shirt. Shirts will be sent home with students today. If you'd rather pick up at school, please contact Cathy by email or 402-715-8280.
Have a great weekend! ~Mrs. Hunt
