The Willard Weekly

November 16, 2015

Dear Willard Families and Community,

Happy November. November is flying by! On Tuesday we are asking students to wear green to support the efforts of our Green Team. Willard is one of 26 southern California schools participating in the Grades of Green Trash Free Challenge.

Our IB attitude for the month of November is cooperation. The profile attributes that we are celebrating are being a thinker and being courageous. Please share these with your child(ren) and discuss how these traits are helpful in daily life.

AAPC is sponsoring a Read, Write, Recite event on December 17th. If your child would like to present a book report to the group please attend the next AAPC meeting at 5:00 pm on Thursday, November 19, in the library to learn more about it.

Our Willard Annual Fund (WAF) is sponsoring a first aid kit fundraiser. The WAF is fundraising to purchase a shade structure for our lunch area, so please be sure to support this fundraiser.

The Willard Weekly is posted on Willard’s Facebook page. Be sure to like it.

Did you know that all 4th graders receive a free pass for Federal Parks (families are included)? Please check out this website for more information.
