Teacher Appreciation Week
Please take a moment to write your child's teacher a note to let them know that their efforts have not gone unnoticed. I can tell you that we have the most dedicated and committed staff! I try to tell them as often as possible :) Below are a few ideas of how you can show appreciation.
I will send teacher wish lists tomorrow.
It’s book fair time!
Between April 27 and May 3, 2022 the book fair will be open daily from 7:45am-2:30pm in the library! The book fair is a fundraiser for the Williams library and a great opportunity for your student to build their home library. Special after school hours will be on Thursday, April 28 from 4:30-5:30. To sign up to volunteer, sign up for e-wallet (a electronic book fair gift card), or to shop the online book fair, visit this website: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/williamselementaryschool21

Two of these opportunities are approaching quickly:
- Connect Family Event – Splash into Summer Learning by joining the Connect Family Events team on Saturday, June 4th as we partner with the Children's Museum of Houston to bring the Parent Stars "Fun Shop" to LCISD. Elementary students and their families will engage in hands-on activities that focus on themes such as math, science, literacy, art, and physical activity. You won't want to miss the fantastic lineup of community members sharing summer themed read-alouds, the Storytime Mini-Musical "Chicken Big" from Books Alive!, Screen Printing with Danny Russo, plus the LEAF Choice Books Shopping Experience, family games, prizes and more! LCISD elementary students and their families are eligible to register for this no-cost event. Registered families will receive a pass for 6 people to visit the Children's Museum of Houston/Ft. Bend Discovery Center. Link: https://forms.office.com/pages/responsepage.aspx?id=YLr5XW0hUkih1cpB5PakUpB5s_TZpnpFgvruV_GFbStURVZIMlBXWEtZWklHSTFHMURWM09VSzZNQy4u
- Camp Connect – Rising 2nd through 5th grade students (currently in 1st through 4th grade) may register to experience the adventure of summer camp while engaging in hands-on activities that unleash their inner maker, scientist, artist, and coder — all in a collaborative, inclusive environment that cultivates wonder and a knack for exploration. Registration is on a first come, first served basis, and is required for this no-cost opportunity. There are (3), five-day sessions beginning Monday, June 6th and continuing through Friday, June 27th. Priority consideration will be given to students enrolled at a Title I campus and a total of 300 students will be served. Transportation to and from camp is not provided.

Weekly Parent-School Connection
Using string or ribbon, hold one end at the top of your head and have someone pull it straight down to the floor. This is your height (how tall you are). How many times do you think this string will wrap around your foot? Your leg? Your head? Make a prediction (a guess) and then find out.
