Guess What's Coming????

In just 3 weeks, we’ll kick off our Willow Springs Fun Run on 10/15 (Tk 1,2&3) 10/25 (Tk 4)! Our goal is to raise $28,000 for Classroom Technology & PTA Programs and to strengthen our school community. We are hoping to earn enough so that every classroom has a smart TV for big clear presentations during instruction! This year more than ever, we need additional funds to provide an excellent educational experience for all of our students. We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at mybooster.com. Sharing IS supporting! All students will participate in the Willow Springs Fun Run, regardless of financial participation. We will also be following our school safety guidelines to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.

We appreciate your support more than you know. More details to come as we get closer to kickoff!

Zones in the Cafe

Mrs. Reynolds created this awesome artwork to remind our students of EXPECTED Green Zone Behaviors in the cafeteria. As a parent, you can help by modeling/practicing Green Zone meal times at home! Encourage your child to:

  • Come to the table with a calm body

  • Speak with an inside voice

  • Face forward

  • Focus on eating his/her food

  • Stay seated

  • Use polite table manners (ie. say: “please”, “thank you”; chew with mouth closed)

  • Help clean up the table after eating
