2021-22 Offsite Learning Days for Students
The school calendar this year includes four days of offsite learning for students: October 20, November 10, February 22, and April 14. On these days students will be learning at home while staff will be participating in vital professional development sessions with a focus on student-centered learning. While students will not be meeting with teachers or engaging in new learning on these four days, they should work on assigned projects, catch up on reading and other assignments or utilize online programs (DreamBox, EPIC, iRead, etc). Your child's teacher will give more directions closer to the time.
Math Push In Instruction Kindergarten-3rd Grade
Willow Park Elementary provides all students with a variety of opportunities to support making progress towards learning in mathematics. Students in kindergarten through third grade will participate in Push In Small Group Math Instruction throughout the 2021-2022 school year.
Math instruction will be provided in the classroom and delivered by the classroom teacher and additional small group instruction will be provided by math interventionists. The goal of this collaboration is to provide intensive math instruction for all students to begin to catch up to their grade level, or to continue to make progress on their grade level skills. Through small group instruction and individual student practice, teachers can target skill levels and adapt instruction accordingly.
Milk for Snack Break
Elementary students have milk/snack break every day at school. You may purchase milk each semester for them to have during break. First semester milk fees will be $36 and can be submitted online via MySchoolBucks or by submitting payment via cash or check to the school office. We do not have the availability.
If you currently have an account, you will use the store for the fees option to pay for snack milk it is a separate account from lunch money. If you have not used MySchoolBucks in the past, please follow the instructions to create a new account.
Bus students remember, you will be using your bus tags to scan on and off when you are riding the bus. Please find your bus tag from last year and tie it to your backpack. Remember it should be on the right side when you have your backpack on.
Students Bring Your Water Bottle
This year students will be required to bring their own water bottle again. The water fountains will be used only as bottle fillers, the drinking part will be disabled. Be sure to label your student's bottle with their name in case it get misplaced.
Mask on the Bus
Federal law requires anyone using public transportation, which school buses are considered, to be masked while onboard. If a student boards the bus without a mask, one will be provided to them. If your student is a bus rider, please send them with a mask and/or encourage them to wear their mask consistently and correctly while on the bus. Since the driver is often the only adult onboard, your help in encouraging mask-wearing would be greatly appreciated.
