Our Williams community ROCKS!

Our families are the best! We are so lucky to have had all of you supporting us during our various November and December school events. We are grateful for your participation in our Fall Fundraiser, 1st Trimester Family Picnic, Cafecito meetings, Triple P Parent Workshops and most recently our parent-teacher conferences. Let's continue strengthening our school to home connections in the coming months!

I'd also like to express our sincere thanks to our community for supporting us in our new safety measures. We have changed the arrival entrance to the blue doors in the morning, we've separated recess times to only 1-2 grade levels at a time and have closed our parking lot at peak arrival and dismissal times. All of these changes have worked out for the improved safety of our Wildcats and their families.

December will be a short month but it is flying by! We will return to our regular dismissal times on Monday, 12/12/22. We are also getting ready for Winter Break. Our school will be closed from December 22 - January 4. We have a Minimum Day scheduled for the last day of school before winter break. On Wednesday, 12/21/22, students will attend school from 8:00-11:45 AM. ASES and Enrichment will be cancelled on this day so that they may attend their staff development activities.

A big thank you goes out to the Majestics Car Club - Ventura County for donating the toys they collected during their toy drive. We wish all of our South Oxnard partners a safe winter break and look forward to hearing about all of the wonderful memories that were made with friends and family.

Ms. Granado
