Our theme this year is

I Can Be a Shining Star and Follow the Wildcat Way!

We are committed to ensuring all students are successful and grow and develop, both academically and socially, in a safe, supportive school environment. We are very appreciative of the support you provide as parents-your children benefit in many ways when we are partners and focused on their successes.

 

Willow Canyon Wildcats are:

Responsible

If you are responsible, your teachers and parents can count on you to; 1) do what you say, 2) give your best effort, and 3) take care of the things you are accountable for doing. A responsible person is also able to independently make good choices.  If they make a mistake, they answer for their own behavior - they don't make excuses.

Safe

We behave in ways that keep us safe and those around us from being harmed. 

Respectful

Being respectful means treating others in a thoughtful and kind way.  It means we treat others the way we would like to be treated.

Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is a great way to increase reading comprehension as well as lear how to work as a team to accomplish a goal. If you are in 3rd grade you can have up to 4 students in your group. 4th and 5th grades can have up to 5 students in their groups. Each group must have a parent volunteer to supervise the group. Permission slips are due Friday, October 11th. Turn these in to your teacher. There is a parent meeting on Tuesday, October 8th at 5:00pm to learn all about Battle of the Books and how you can support your child through this enrichment activity.

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to Willow Canyon! We are excited that your children will be attending school with us.  We want you to know that we are dedicated to ensuring your child has a positive and successful learning experience.  The support you provide is greatly valued and makes a difference for your child’s success.

As your child’s school, our primary goal is to understand and meet student needs for learning.  Willow Canyon offers a multi-tiered system of supports involving enrichment activities to extend student learning strengths, and focused interventions to support specific learning needs.  We provide positive behavior interventions and supports and teach your child how to manage his or her own behavior during the school day.  Willow Canyon teachers are knowledgeable, dedicated, talented, and maintain high achievement expectations for all students.  We want every student to be successful.

We are focused on meeting Canyons School District’s goal of every student being college, career, and citizenship ready when they graduate from high school. Elementary school provides the important foundation required for students to meet this goal.

The Willow Canyon community is wonderful!  We feel fortunate to have the support that is provided from the families and also the PTA and School Community Council. We value the partnership we have with each of you, as well as our shared goal of every child feeling valued and being successful.

Go Wildcats!

Marilyn Williams, Principal
