Willard Tiger Homecoming 2018
Friday, September 21st will be a special day as each Willard Tiger will participate in the first ever District-wide Homecoming Parade! All students from across the District will line the streets of Willard and cheer on their fellow Tigers at 10:00am. Students from Central, South, and Orchard Hills will be bussed to Willard to participate while our East, North, Intermediate, Middle, and High school students will walk to the parade route. Take a look at the parade route here. While thousands of students will be watching, hundreds of our students will be participating in the parade with representation from each school. Our community is invited to join us for the parade viewing from East Center, across from WMS!
Did you know that this will be the only time this school year that our entire District will be in the same place, at the same time? In an effort to unite our District in celebration and school pride, you will see many High School students around the District during Homecoming week. All our Tigers are also encouraged to participate in District-wide Spirit Week.
We’re excited for this opportunity to foster Willard Tiger Pride in every student. To ensure student safety, parents/guardians may only check out their child at their school building office before or after the parade. All students that go to the parade will also return back to school from the parade. If you have any questions, please contact your student’s building.
As a reminder, September 21st is a half day for students. Grades K-6 release at 12:30 and grades 7-12 at 11:30! We invite you to join us in the rest of the Homecoming festivities at Tiger Stadium in the evening beginning at 6:30pm with kick off at 7:00pm! Note* Tiger TALES will operate as usual from 12:30PM-6PM for those students enrolled. Go Tigers!
Willard Athletic Complex Track
Exciting progress is being made at the Willard Athletic Complex track! The foundation is being torn out and the entire track replaced as we make a better track for our student athletes and community. In the meantime, for everyone's safety, the track and field will be closed until further notice.
At this time, the football field has been replaced, the track foundation is complete, and we are closing in on a few other items such as fencing and the track surface. We ask that you still find another location for workouts at this time to ensure your safety. Thank you!
We hope you'll join us this fall to see the finished product!
