Planning is underway for Field Day at Willard on Friday, May 21st. Our students have been CHAMPIONS this year and we look forward to closing our year with some fun!
Do you have old shoes that you no longer need? Bring them to Willard so that they can be reused or recycled! Now through Friday, you can bring your old shoes to school so that our friends at the Randolph County Recycling District can find a new home for them. It's a win-win...your closets get clean, someone gets new kicks, and we keep shoes out of our landfills. Thank you in advance for your help! Go Warriors!
Reminder! Spring Flower Sale pick-up is this afternoon from 3:00-5:00PM in the back lot at Willard. If you sold flowers, please plan to pick them up and deliver them to those who purchased from your child. Go Warriors!

As many of you are aware, Governor Holcomb announced Indiana's mask mandate will end April 6. I want to make everyone aware that according to Governor Holcomb’s declaration, face coverings will remain mandatory in all state buildings, all vaccination and COVID-19 testing sites, and in K-12 schools. In other words students, staff, and individuals attending school functions will still be required to wear a mask in schools after April 6. With today’s shift in Randolph County to Yellow Status it is important to do all we can to slow the spread so that our end of the school year events are as close to traditional as we can make them. Rolland Abraham RCSC Superintendent

The state of Indiana requires that every school provide child abuse education to students. For Willard students, this is provided through the "Child Safety Matters" program. This program will be taught on March 29th and 30th by our friends from the Child Advocacy Center. Your child should be bringing home an "opt out" form very soon. This form outlines the components of the program and should only be signed and returned if you DO NOT want your child to participate. Please feel free to call the Willard office with any questions or concerns. Go Warriors!
The Willard Elementary School FOOD PANTRY is this afternoon from 3:30-5:00 (or until food runs out) in our back parking lot. The PANTRY is FREE to all Willard students and their families. Please stop by and see us! Go Warriors!
Spring Picture Day is coming!
During the 2020 Christmas season when Ardagh employees of Local 14, Local 65, & Local 106T are paid to stay home with their families. Many of them volunteered to work to keep production of this essential company going during a global pandemic. The employees on the Ardagh team worked a total of 2,079 shifts which is 16,632 hours they could have been home relaxing with their families. That is more than double the number of shifts of any other Ardagh Group plant in North America. Because the Ardagh employees in this area stepped up, Ardagh was able to make a donation of $25,987.50 to buy supplies, shoes, coats, clothing, and food for students in need at Randolph Central Schools. Mr. Abraham is pictured receiving the donation on behalf of The Board of School Trustees and all our students. Thank you Ardagh and Local 14, Local 65, & Local 106T!
