The Willard Weekly

October 12, 2015

Dear Willard Families and Community,

Thank you for joining us last Thursday for our STEAM Club’s Coding Night and on Friday for PTA’s movie night. We were delighted with the turn out.

Parent/ Teacher/ Student Conferences

There is school tomorrow on October 12, but Friday, October 16, there is no school because it is Parent/ Teacher/Student conference day.

Great California Shake Out

This Thursday Willard IB will be participating in the Great California Shakeout. At 10:15 AM we "Drop, Cover, and Hold" for one minute. Then we evacuate the building. We will have signs posted that we are participating in the drill.

Fall Festival

The Willard Fall Festival is coming on Friday, October 30th, and we want parents to join in the fun! We’re having a Trunk Or Treat. Trunk or Treating is like trick or treating except goodies are handed out by Willard Family members who decorate their car trunks. It will be held in the closed-off teachers parking lot. Decorate your trunk any way you like (except for gory or scary decorations) and hand out goodies to our kids. You can even dress up if you want to! If you’re interested, please leave your name and email address (or phone number) in the office. A PTA member will contact you the week before the festival with more details.

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