“Willard Elementary, Succeeding Today, Soaring Tomorrow!”
Willard Elementary, home of the Eagles, serves students from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. We work diligently to provide and maintain an environment where studen academic and social-emotional needs come first. This means that we are dedicated to providing an environment where students feel safe, challenged, supported, and engaged in our school community. The staff at Willard elementary has high expectations for all students and prides itself on preparing our students to be the best they can be! At Willard, parents are partners in education through Power of an Hour, P.T.O. and Parent Advisory Committee. Together our staff and families make a positive difference in the lives of our Willard students.
Willard Elementary continues to work hard in providing reading and math instruction that is aligned to the Common Core Standards. In reading, students receive differentiated reading instruction through whole group and flexible small group settings. Students receive 120 minutes of reading instruction with highly qualified staff daily. Helping students become confident, fluent readers is a top priority at Willard. Willard also uses the district adopted My Math Program to help students make connections with mathematical concepts and problem-solving through a standards based, hands-on-approach to math.
Willard uses the BEST behavior program to facilitate positive peer and adult interactions and to help students learn to be safe, responsible, respectful, and kind.
Students have the opportunity to participate in many co-curricular clubs at Willard. These clubs include – Intermediate Lego Robotics, Primary Lego Robotics, Student Council, Math Enrichment Club, Recycling Club, 123 Book Club, Art Club, Board Game Club, and Catch-Up Club.
