Greetings Willink Families!
I hope this letter finds you enjoying a beautiful summer. As we get ready for the school year to start, I wanted to share some dates and flyers with all of our Willink families.
Please scroll down to read about chromebook pickup dates, locker setup dates, the Willink Back to School Bash, PTSA Willink Wear, and many more useful links to information. In addition, letters were mailed home to all 7th and 8th grade students with student schedules and other individualized information (6th grade students will receive their schedules and other necessary information during WEB orientation). Please note that the schedule you receive in the mail is a draft as of today. We will provide every student with an updated schedule on the first day of school.
Speaking of the first day...The first day of school is Thursday, September 5th. As a reminder, our school hours for 2019-20 will be 8:45 AM - 3:15 PM.
I hope you enjoy these final weeks of August!
Student/Parent Portal will be accessible on August 19, 2019
The student/parent portal is an excellent way to monitor your child's progress. As always, please email your child’s teacher with specific questions related to classroom performance. If you have behavioral or social-emotional concerns, your child’s counselor would be the first point of contact. Again, working together we can help your child grow!
Sixth Grade Orientation - WEB Day!
WEB - Where Everyone Belongs
8:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
August 21, 2019
(Location: Willink’s gymnasium)
This orientation will make it easier to move from the elementary school you know so well to Willink Middle School. Eighth graders will be serving as leaders and mentors to sixth graders. You will participate in large and small group activities that are designed for FUN as you learn some things to make you successful at Willink.
Wear comfortable clothes and don’t bring all your stuff…travel light! There will be separate times to organize your locker.
Parents, please remember to drop off/pick up your students at the main entrance or through the house entrances to the side of Willink. The back entrance will be for chromebook pickup.
If you have any questions, please call the Counseling Center at 670-1043.

New String Bag Policy
Students may now carry String Bags during the school day. PTSA has two options available for purchase on their website (click image to link to website). These string bags are available now and will be throughout the school year. Students may also choose to use a different string bag as long as it does not exceed the size dimensions of 17.75"h x 14.5"w.
Please note: all backpacks, small bags, purses, vera bags, etc. will need to remain in student lockers throughout the school day regardless of size. Only string bags that meet the dimension requirements will be acceptable for use during school hours.
