    Runner In Me
    Dear Willard Central Community,
    The Runner in Me 5K has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 18th.  With the change in the day, we have changed our schedule for the day.  We will still have the grade level competitive races at the following times:
    9:30 Kindergarten and 1st Grade - Competitive 1/2 Mile Race for those that want to participate
    10:00 2nd-4th Grade - 1 Mile Competitive Race for those that want to participate
    5K Plans:
    1:30 - Little Leader Race is back on!!  The race will take place on the west walking track for preschool and younger kids.  Our students and runners will cheer on our Little Leaders and then we will get ready to start the 5K.
    The Runner in Me 5K and Family Fun Run will follow the Little Leader Race.  We will be setting up 1 mile and 2 mile turn around spots for students who may choose not to do the entire 5K.  Most t-shirts have been distributed and/or are ready for pick up at the school office or before race time.  We still have some t-shirts available for purchase while they last.
    If your family or friends would still like to join us for the event, you are welcome to attend!  Thank you for your help and flexibility.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  We are looking forward to a great day and a great memory!  
    ****Please Note:  If it rains on May 16 (which it won't!), Willard Central Field Day will be rescheduled for the 18th.  If this happens, the 5K would be cancelled.****

  • Runner In Me Rescheduled

    WC Friends and Family,

    Due to the inclement weather forecast for this weekend, the WC PTO Runner in Me 5K has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 18th. Due to the busy May schedule, the race has been rescheduled for 1:30 during the school day. Sadly, not all registrants may be able to participate, but this will still allow all students the opportunity to run in the race. We apologize for the inconvenience, but felt this move was best for student and runner safety.

    We would still like to invite all of our registrants and families to participate if possible. If you have not registered, but would like to join us for the event, you may do so that day. While we will not have our Little Leader Run for preschool-aged children, we will still have our competitive grade level mile races. For those who have already registered, race T-shirts will be sent home with students in May to have for the day of the race.

    Thank you for your understanding and continued support of our school! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our school office at 417-831-4440.

  • Last Week of School

    What a wonderful way to end the school year. This week students have gotten to sharpen the saw a lot! On Tuesday, students enjoyed a variety of activities on field day, everything from fishing to different water games and Angry Birds Catapults. On Thursday, students got to show off their leadership skills by participating in the Runner in Me 5K. Students ran or walked a portion or the whole 5K. Finally, today students and staff celebrated all their wonderful accomplishments for the year. We recognized perfect attendance, special area awards and got to celebrate teachers that are leaving us and going to leave their marks on the world. Thanks to all students, parents and teachers for a wonderful school year. Keep the mind, body, and spirit sharp this summer and we will see you back on Meet the Teacher Night and PTO BBQ August 15th.

    Check out our Facebook page for all the wonderful pictures.

  • One of Willard Central's very own 4th grade students, Rylee Adams, has been awarded a $500 leadership grant from the FranklinCovey Education Division for his video submission in the annual 2017 Leader in Me International Student Speech Contest.

    Students attending Leader in Me Schools (K-12) were encouraged to enter the 2017 Leader in Me International Student Speech Contest by submitting a video, featuring a traditional speech or creative message on an engaging leadership topic that was important to them. One or more students could be featured in the video, and students could receive help from parents or at school, but students were to do the majority of the work in creating the videos.

    The contest allows students the opportunity of speaking in public to further develop their leadership skills. Leader in Me Schools offer students opportunities to speak at Leadership Days, at symposia, in assemblies and in the classroom, as well as to participate in the contest, to continue improving their public speaking skills.

    Nearly 300 speeches were submitted by students throughout the world, including the U.S., Canada, Panama, Brazil, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Guatemala. Congratulations Rylee on your hard work and dedication on finding the Leader in You!

    Take a look at Rylees video and the award ceremony. #FranklinCovey#leaderinme
