Dear Willow Woods Parents and Students, 

I would like to warmly welcome you back to school for the 2018-2019 school year. I hope everyone had a restful summer full of family memories and fun! 

Student success and achievement is one of the many goals we all share here at Willow Woods Elementary. I truly believe that success begins with communication and commitment. In order for every student to achieve their full potential, staff, students, parents and the surrounding community all need to work together to create a strong partnership to help each and every student reach all of their educational goals. I encourage each of you to support your child(ren) by becoming an active member of the Willow Woods community through volunteering, attending school events, and/or being part of the Willow Woods PTCO. Below are some important dates for the beginning of the year school events that I invite you to attend. We hope to see 100% parent attendance at Curriculum Night. General School Information is also available on the school website. 

  • September 4, 2018 - First Day of School: 8:47am-12:03 (No breakfast or lunch served today) Student packets will go home today with your child. 
  • September 5, 2018 - Full Day of School: 8:47-3:59pm 
  • September 18, 2018 - Curriculum Night: 6:30-8:00pm 

I look forward to an exciting new school year as our school community continues to grow with the addition of new programs, such as World of 4’s, three Early Childhood Special Education classrooms, as well as new staff, students and families!! 

Willow Woods is also very busy putting the finishing touches on the exciting and extensive interior updates that have occurred over the summer in preparation for our students’ arrival. A few updates include upgraded technology, new carpet throughout the media center and office area, new floor tiles in all classrooms, additional dry erase boards, new sinks and toilets, and classroom storage cupboards, just to name a few. Due to these improvements still being finished-up, we are mailing the teacher and general school information home this year. 

I thank you in advance for your continued support of Willow Woods Elementary School and being an active part in your child’s educational experience. I am looking forward to creating yet another successful school year together. 

We look very forward to seeing everyone’s smiling faces on Tuesday, September 4th!
