September 2019

Welcome Back

We are so excited that the school year has begun, and that you have entrusted the education of your child to us. Our goal is to instill a love of reading and learning in each WES student. We know that every child can learn, and it is our responsibility to make sure that happens in every classroom for every student. "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."

Enrollment Update

The number of students at Williams increased this year. We are thrilled at the opportunity to serve more children in our community. With more students, we need more teachers and staff. The district has provided us with 4 additional staff members to ensure that our class sizes remain small. With the addition of our new staff members, we will be moving some students into those new classes and leveling the week of September 9.

Free Early Morning Childcare

Magnolia ISD is now offering morning childcare from 6:30-7:45 free of charge to all MISD students. To enroll your child or for more information about the early morning childcare program at Williams Elementary, please email Debra Kurten at dkurten@magnoliaisd.org.
