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.

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!
