Willard East is beginning a transformation process based on the book, The Leader in Me by Franklin Covey. This process teaches leadership and life skills to students and teaches our children that everyone can be a leader.
Willard East is a Digital Media Citizenship Certified School
As our students are becoming one to one with technology at an early age, WEE is striving to empower and protect them. In class, the computer lab, and the library the students have completed their Digital Passports and corresponding curriculum. An agreement came home regarding this comment we want to make with you as a team. At the Common Sense Media site you will find some more information about our efforts, and how you can become an important part of your student's online learning and safety.
Monday August 21, students at Willard East were able to go outside with their classes and witness a solar eclipse. The students in our district were supplied with eclipse glasses from a local optometrist. Dr. Jarvis. Students were not only able to go out and witness the eclipse, but many teachers also spent some time during the day teaching their students about this phenomenon with crafts, models, and experiments.
We will have our April Tiger Pride Assembly tomorrow at 2:30PM. As always, friends and family are invited to celebrate with us! We will have a busy week next week celebrating our awesome teachers! To kick it off on Monday we will have a donut and coffee treat in the parking lot! Willard East Teachers eat free but anyone is welcome to join us!
Thank you for your participation in our fundraiser earlier this year. Ever wondered what we spend that money on? In this case, we needed more chairs! Thanks to you we were able to purchase 84 more chairs to seat individuals for assemblies, music programs, and other events that happen here at our school. We also created a new ball field on the playground! We still have about half of our fundraiser money left. Thanks, again!
