The Willard Weekly

May 16, 2016

Dear Willard Families and Community,

Please join us for Big Saturday, May 21st 8am-12:00pm. We have many beautification projects that you can sign up for!

PTA is collecting gently used books to sell on May 19th and May 20th. Please drop off gently used books in the collection boxes in the main hallway and outside the library.

This May we are celebrating the whole child. Therefore, we are revisiting all the attitudes and the learner profile. Our IB students strive to demonstrate the attitudes of appreciation, commitment, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, independence, integrity, respect, and tolerance. As a part of our IB learner profile our students are working toward being inquirers who are knowledgeable thinkers that communicate effectively. Our students seek to be principled, open-minded, caring, courageous, balanced, and reflective. Please discuss these with your child(ren).

Green Team

Please wear green on Tuesday to celebrate I.B. Green. However, please wear your uniform the rest of the week.

Running Club

Don’t forget that running club runs every morning from 7:30-7:45.
