Mascot Change

You may have noticed that our mascot has changed. In order to give our students a sense of ownership, classrooms came up with different mascots they would like to have. After registering to vote, all students voted on the mascot they would like to see us have. The ballots were counted and Frances Willard Wolves won by a landslide. We are all excited for this new change!

Welcome our New Staff

With the retirements of both our librarian and nurse as well as the loss of Mrs. Miller, new staff are being hired. Please help us welcome Ms. Teresa Wassenhove, our new nurse. We continue to look for a librarian as well as a full time ELL (English Language Learner) teacher. If you are interested in helping with the interview process, please let Mrs. Johnson know.

Coming Soon- The Great Kindness Challenge

During the week of January 25, our school will be participating in the Great Kindness Challenge. This is a nationwide event focusing on proactive, positive bullying prevention. Please encourage your child to complete the checklist that will be coming home soon.

We, at Frances Willard, are Leaders and Learners

Please help us in reaching our goal of every child being a leader and learner. Our focus at school includes:

1. Be respectful.

2. Be responsible.

3. Be safe.

Being respectful at school includes showing respect to yourself, other students, and all staff. To be responsible, students should take care of themselves and their things at school. This includes computers, books, and even recess equipment. All students deserve a safe environment in which to learn. At school we stress students MUST keep their hands to themselves. PLEASE help us in reminding all students how important this is.

THANK YOU for helping Frances Willard be the best school!
