A Message from Ms. Colon

Dear Mary Williams Families:

Amazing things continue to happen at our school. This past week we celebrated the hard work of our volunteers by hosting a breakfast. We are extremely grateful for all the things they do to support learning at our school. This year we had over 50 volunteers come to our school to help with instruction, read, assist with copies and support teachers. We are fortunate to have them.

Our students are doing great on the SOL's! I am very proud of their hard work. As we conclude state assessments we will be sharing their performance with you. Official scores will be mailed during the summer months. Feel free to contact our school with any questions.

The pool is open and students are enjoying the weather. Feel free to take a book to engage in some summer reading. I have my list ready and will be sharing my progress on social media. I look forward to hear about your titles.

Honored to be your leader,

Mrs. Colon

Camp Invention

We’re building the future, one thinker at a time. Camp Invention will be hosted at MWES this summer! Each day, campers work in teams as they rotate between four fun thematic modules. Each module brings new challenges to build upon what was learned the previous day. Just imagine what your child could experience:

  • Collaborate to build prototypes, following the example of National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees.
  • Upcycle and re-engineer with gears and gadgets, developing critical-thinking skills and creativity.
  • Explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment, motivating a group to develop solutions to real-world problems.

Camp will be led by Ms. Thomas, our Instructional Technology Coach. Don't miss the fun.
