Willett Band Concert Was Amazing

I cannot tell you how proud I am of our Willett Band students and staff. The school assemblies were so good with students and staff in the audience, praising how well everyone did. 

The night presentation at Brunelle Theater was out of this world. The music was played so well and our students did such a great job. Willett Band students rock!!

I can't wait for our Chorus concert on February 8th. More info to come.

Attendance (Did You Know?)

Missing 10%, or about 2 days each month over the course of a school year, can make it harder to learn to read.

DJUSD February PEP Talk

PRIDE Parenting Skills

Presented by Communicare+OLE

This PEP talk is centered around learning parenting skills to help improve your relationship with your child. PRIDE skills (P-Praise, R-Reflect, I-Imitate, D-Describe, E-Enjoy) are helpful in teaching children which behaviors are desired through the use of selective attention.
