Dear Williamstown Independent Families,
Happy September! I hope everyone enjoyed the Labor Day weekend with family and friends!
The beginning of the 2019-2020 school year has gone smoothly. Thank you for ensuring your child was ready to begin by attending our back to school events. Our staff has been busy teaching students the proper procedures and expectations and I have already witnessed our students learning and growing.
September is a busy month with numerous activates taking place. We hope to see you at one or more of the following events.
First, Grandparent’s Day for will take place at Williamstown Elementary on Friday, September 6, 2019 from 8:30-10:00. While we call it grandparent’s day, we accept anyone who has a special relationship with our elementary students to attend. For those visiting, please enter through the high school doors where you will sign in and wait in the gym for a program by our students.
Also on September 6 at 7:00 is also the annual “Bring on the Band” event. This allows families and community members to have a sneak peek at the band’s 2019 show titled “Out of the Maze”. I have been able to watch the band practice and it is sure to be another successful band season. I encourage you to come out and support the students and staff who have been working hard over the summer to bring this show together.
The annual Board of Education sponsored Senior Picnic will take place on Friday, September 13 from 6:00-8:00 at the school. This event is for seniors to enjoy an evening of fun and fellowship and officially kick off their senior year.
The district no longer has Late Start Mondays, but will have 6 Early Release Fridays throughout the year. These early release days allow teachers to meet together and fine tune instructional practices in order to meet students’ needs. The first early release day is Friday, September 20. Students will be dismissed 2 hours earlier than the normal school day. Additional early release days are; October 18, November 15, January 17, February 21, and March 27.
On September 27, the Williamstown Elementary Booster Organization (WEBO) will host their annual Fall Festival. Our entire district comes together to provide games, food, and fun for students and parents. Please join us beginning at 5:00 for this fun and exciting evening. More details will be forthcoming from WEBO.
Lastly, our fall student athletes are working hard representing our school on the athletic field and in the classroom. Golf, Soccer, Cross Country, and Volleyball are all in action. Be sure to check our calendar to see when the Demons and Lady Demons and I encourage you to come out and support our teams. Th
It is always an exciting time to be a Demon. We look forward to continued success as the year progresses!
With Demon Pride,
