Dear Williamstown Independent Families,
Happy September! We have had a wonderful start to the 2017-2018 school year. Students have settled in nicely and are learning and growing daily. Thank you for your support in ensuring a positive start to the year.
Many exciting events take place in September. First, Grandparent’s Day will be held at Williamstown Elementary on Friday, September 8th from 8:30-10:00. This is a wonderful time for grandparents and grandchildren to spend time together. Grandparents are so important to the life of a child. If grandparents are not available, we accept anyone who has a relationship with our students to join us on this special day.
September 8th is also the annual “Bring on the Band” event, which begins at 7:00. Come out for an evening of fun and watch the band perform their new show, Enchantress. You will be able to buy food, Kona Ice, and show buttons. The students have been working hard and I would love to see you.
September 11th will be our first Late Start Monday. The school day will start 30 minutes later than normal. Buses will also run 30 minutes later than regular schedule. This time is used for teacher training, so they can better serve their students. Late start Mondays will occur every Monday and will end after Spring Break.
September 15th will be the annual Senior Picnic sponsored by the Board of Education. This evening is a special kick-off for the senior class of 2018. The evening begins at 6:45 with dinner and lots of fun.
The end of September concludes with the fabulous Fall Festival. This event is sponsored every year by the Williamstown Elementary Booster Organization (WEBO). Our entire district comes together to provide games, food, and fun for students and parents. Please join us on September 29th beginning at 5:00 for this exciting evening.
As a reminder, school will be closed Monday, September 4th as we celebrate Labor Day. We wish all of our families and community members a safe and enjoyable holiday.
With Demon Pride,
Williamstown Independent Schools
