Willow Parent Bulletin #4

September 25, 2020

Thank you to everyone who stuck with us through the glitch in our Open House link last night. Once we got going we were able to introduce some of the faces your child doesn't get to see daily but may work with at some point. Mr. Coronado, our music teacher, led us in a new PBIS chant about being safe, caring and ready. The night continued with Mr. Slivka doing a directed drawing of our mascot, Wyle D. Cat. Don't forget to add your picture to our padlet: https://padlet.com/melissalawson2/iokujefuh9v7c1cc. Mr. Witkowski and Mrs. Mastela revved everyone up with the YMCA and Uptown Funk dances and then settled us back down with a little bit of mindful. Our night ended with the story Be You! by Peter Reynolds.

The good news is that if you missed out on the evening or gave up on the technology, it was recorded. We will let you know when that link is available.
