Student Council applications are now available in the Willard office. Applications should be completed neatly and returned to the Willard office by Friday, October 11th. Teacher/staff recommendation forms should be given to staff members at any RCSC school. They will be returned directly to Mr. Duncan, not to the student. Approximately 10 students will be chosen per grade level to make up the Student Council. Best of luck!
Next week will be CHAMPION WEEK here at Willard. During this week, Willard 3rd grade students will be collecting money in their piggy banks for their 529 Savings Accounts.

Our practice eLearning Day is underway. Students are pretending to be at home as if it was a true eLearning Day, working online and corresponding with their teachers via computer.
The summer of 2019 was a busy one for the custodial and maintenance staff at Willard Elementary School. Walking into the building, it is obvious that much time and care was taken over the summer to give the building a fresh look. This is evident the moment you step foot in the front doors, as you are greeted with a new entry rug emblazoned with the Willard logo. Gone is the old carpet throughout the building, replaced by a new, warm, and modern look. The egg shell white paint color has been replaced with tones of gray, beige, and navy blue. Sleek new bulletin boards have replaced mismatched boards throughout the building. Signage for the new PRIDE initiative can be found throughout the building. In the gymnasium, new wall pads cover the walls at each end, providing both safety and a new look. We are so grateful to our Superintendent, Mr. Rolland Abraham, and our wonderful School Board for investing in the aesthetics of our building. Also, a BIG THANKS to all of those who worked tirelessly this summer to revamp the building and get it ready for students!
Willard's annual MUM SALE is underway! Please help support our school by purchasing mums from a Willard student or by calling our office at 765-584-9171 ext. 1200.

Don't forget, school will not be in session on Monday, September 2nd in observance of Labor Day. Enjoy your three day weekend!
