One Team One Willard Wednesday

Student Government Association


For this week's #OneTeamOneWillardWednesday, we visited our Student Government Association (SGA).


Our SGA says that #OneTeamOneWillard means working to involve and connect every student, no matter their values or backgrounds, and continuing to look for ways to build up our community which extends not only throughout our school but to our district as a whole. We are constantly striving to value every voice and work as one team!

Teacher Proud Tuesday - October Recipient


We are excited to celebrate our great educators with other districts in the region throughout the school year through the Teacher Proud program. This month, we are spotlighting 8th Grade ELA Teacher, Mrs. Candis Shaw.


Her peers say she is always a positive person, creates great relationships with students, and makes learning fun. She is known for her catchphrase, "I support you," and extends that support to students and colleagues. Thank you, Mrs. Shaw, for investing in our students!


Visit our website to learn more about the Teacher Proud program and be sure to check back the second Tuesday of each month to see our recipients!
