Black History Month 

Today’s assembly had a wonderful celebration of Black History Month. A slideshow was shared with students celebrating Miles Davis, Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, and many more. The presentation was powerful with students giving the celebration a loud applause. Thank you Mr. Miille for this wonderful presentation. 

Chorus Concert

Come watch the Willett Chorus in our rockin' annual winter concert! Chorus is comprised of 3rd-6th grade students here at Willett, and is directed by Ms. Lindsay. Our concert will be held on February 23rd, in the new MPR at 6:00 pm. A massive thank you to the Willett PTA for supporting this program! 

Elementary Strings Concert

You are invited to this year’s first strings concert for the 5th and 6th grade classes. The concert will be on Tuesday, February 6th at Davis High School in the Brunelle Theater at 6:30 pm. It is a free event and there is a bake sale after the concert. Please come support our performers.

Pickup And Drop Off Reminder

Attention parents, please remember that the front parking lot is for staff use only before school, during school, and after school. Parents need to park off site and walk their students on campus. There have also been some families who are entering the parking lot in their cars from the exit. This poses a danger to all who are leaving the lot and to others who may be walking their students out near that exit. For student safety, please walk students on to campus and do not use the parking lot to drop off or pick up students.

Student Drop Off On Rainy Days

Student arrival on rainy days can become problematic in keeping students out of the rain. To support us, please drop students off for school as close to 8:25 as possible to cut down on students collecting/playing in the rain. We really appreciate it!
