Dear Willamette families,
The continued interruptions that this winter has presented us reminds me of the John Lennon quote, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.” As we navigate through another weather event, I am sure that you join me in looking forward to returning to our normal routines- beautiful as this snow is.
Despite these interruptions, our students and staff to continue to move forward with purpose and hard work. Upcoming school events like our Science Fair, Battle of the Books and Rhythms program bring tremendous energy and enthusiasm to our building. Please note that our Rhythms program will be held on February 10th, with shows at 10:00 and 1:00. I am looking forward to participating in my first rhythms program, which is a unique and cherished Willamette tradition. Each of these wonderful events would not be possible without the purposeful planning of our staff and the countless volunteers who give their time in support- thank you!
As this school year progresses, albeit slowly due to wintry weather, I want to encourage you to contact me with any questions that you have. From progress reports to school boundary adjustments, your questions and feedback are a support as we think about our continuous improvement with communication and curriculum. Whether through email, a phone call, or just dropping by the office- I enjoy hearing your thoughts and concerns. In particular, I have appreciated the opportunity to meet and talk with many of you regarding the middle school boundary adjustments. I am confident that through this process, the school district will make adjustments that work for all children in the school district, reflecting the feedback that has been gathered from each school community.
I hope that you are able to find some time to enjoy this snow. I look forward to returning to our normal routines of school and the continued growth of our students in more temperate weather.
