A Note From Mr. Delp

Next week will be the start of the fourth week of our quarter. I encourage our students and families to stay connected with their current grades and assignments via Infinite Campus.

In addition to our usual opportunities for students to receive assistance with their work (i.e. classroom tutoring and Homework Hub), we are excited about a new opportunity provided by Chandler Unified School District. NetTutor is an online, in-person, tutoring opportunity available to all CUSD students with assistance provided in any subject. Please see the NetTutor section of this newsletter for additional information.

The registration process has started for our 8th grade students headed to high school and we will be working with our current 7th grade students to select their classes in the near future.

Wishing everyone a safe and restful weekend!

Mr. Delp

Community Resource Room Requests

Willis operates a Community Resource Room to support our students and families. We do our best to provide assistance with school supplies, food staples, and other needs on an individual basis. If your student, your family, or someone you know is in need of assistance please connect with us by calling 480-883-5700 and we will do our best to meet the need.

At this time, our resource room is in need of food donations to restock our food pantry. If you would be willing to support us in this manner, you may drop off donations in the office. Here is a list of items of greatest need.

  • Snacks (granola bars, small bags of chips, treats like single serve cookies, chocolates, etc.)
  • Cereal (large boxes and single serve packs)
  • Jelly
  • Spaghetti sauce (large jars)
  • Ramen packs
  • Juice (larger bottles and single serve packs)

Thank you for considering!
