Principal's Message

Dear Wildcat Families,

I'd like to wish all of our Williams community a Happy New Year! As we return to school from winter break, please remind all of our students about the importance of logging into their Seesaw and Google Classrooms on a daily basis. I also wanted to share that there's a lot of evidence that shows a marked improvement in student grades and better engagement when our students turn on their video cameras while they work with their teachers online. We'd appreciate any support you can offer in these two areas.

We are grateful for your cooperation and all of the hard work you put in as we continue on our distance learning journey together.

Principal Maria Granado

Kindness & Good Character Poster and Essay Winners

Congratulations to all the winners of our fall "Celebrating Kindness and Good Character" Poster and Essay Contest.

Character Counts Trait of the Month: Responsibility

During the month of January, we'll be celebrating the character trait of "responsibility." Please feel free to wear a top/shirt in any shade of green on Character Counts Fridays this month.

Responsibility means to: Practice self-control • Be accountable for your choices • Finish what you begin • Do your best and keep trying

Counselor Hernandez

We hope you're all hanging in there! If you find yourself in need of counseling support for your Williams student, please reach out to Counselor Hernandez at lhernandez@hueneme.org. She may also be reached by telephone at (805) 488-3541, ext. 3089.

Don't be afraid to ask for help...let's work together!

Be our guest!

You are cordially invited to join Principal Granado for our first virtual Cafecito con la Directora (Coffee Chat with the Principal) on Tuesday, 01/19/21 from 6:00-7:00 pm. The evening chat will begin with a Spanish wellness presentation by Ventura County Behavioral Health and then you'll be able to chat with our principal and school counselor afterwards.

Please let us know if you have presentation ideas and we'll find a community resource to share at next month's Coffee Chat. Thank you!
