Willow Parent Bulletin #10
October 22, 2021
We are in full fall mode...
Next Friday is an early release day (11:40 AM) as well as our Halloween parade. Weather permitting, we will be walking outside along the sidewalk. You are more than welcome to watch, but we ask that you stand away from the sidewalk, at a safe distance, and wear your mask. Remember that your child's costume should be warm enough for the weather, not be full of gore, and be weapon-free. Students will still need to keep their regular masks on at all times.
You should receive an email from your child's teacher later today that has a sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences. We are offering in-person and Zoom conferences this year to best accommodate your needs.
Our youngest wildcats had a Brain Builder activity today in our own "pumpkin patch." This included a story, picking out a pumpkin, decorating it, and some games and fun pictures.
I though you'd enjoy seeing some of the fantastic learning taking place.
We were also able to honor two much deserving staff with Morin Awards of Academic Excellence: Enrichment Interventionist Lisa Rost and Nurse Gail Straney. They are two of the biggest team players when it comes to doing what's best for our students.
Congratulations to all!
