Marauder Moments

Williamson High School Newsletter - September 2019

Williamson Families,

Happy Back to School!

We are excited to show off so many new things this year, from our new bathrooms to the auditorium to the cafeteria and our stadium. It is all coming together. We hope to see you at Open House Tuesday, September 10 from 6-8 where you can see these improvements in person while you meet your child's teachers.

Another new improvement this year are our school-wide expectations. PRIDE expectations will be posted around the school and in classrooms so we can ensure we are communicating the same expectations for behavior. Please encourage your child to stay 10th period. Full staff meetings occur only once a month, so there is always somewhere for your child to get extra help.

Thank you!

Dr. Avery and Miss Chaya
