We Need Your Rubik's Cubes

Do you have an old Rubik’s cube lying around? Are you tired of trying to solve it? You can donate any Rubik’s cube to Willett to be used on rainy days during lunch. As long as it is complete and usable, we will gladly reuse it during rainy day lunch. 

Willett Chorus Concert 

Our students did an amazing job on Thursday at the school assemblies and night presentation. It was wonderful to see the bright colored shirts, the head bobbing, and the beautiful voices (I caught myself singing along)! Such an amazing job by  our students. Thank you Ms. Lindsay for sharing your singers with us!

Da Vinci Family Nights For 6th Graders

Interested in joining Da Vinci Charter Academy?  Please join us for one of our family information nights at 6pm on either Thursday, February 15th or Wednesday February 21st at Da Vinci High School (1400 E. 8th Street).  At this event, you’ll hear from Da Vinci students about the benefits of our program. We encourage you to bring your students with you to the presentation. Questions? Contact Amy Hannon-Korynta at: [email protected]

Attendance (Did You Know?)

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Eventually good attendance will be a skill that will help them succeed in high school and college.
