While Mr. Medlin’s away, the teachers will play….at inside
recess that is! Even though we went from highs in the 70s
to a single digits seemingly overnight, it hasn’t slowed
anyone down at Willard Central. Mr. Medlin is away at the
Florida Educational Technology Conference with other
administrators learning more about supporting teachers and
students in the classroom.
Back here in chilly Missouri,
we’ve been busy learning, too. This week we found out that
a partnership between Willard Intermediate and Willard
Central is paying off with a visit from the prolific
children’s author, Avi. Springfield-Greene County Library
sponsored a contest for this author visit, and now we will
be sending a dozen WC 4th graders over to the Intermediate
School on April 2nd for this rare opportunity to meet Avi!
In other news, we’re preparing for the upcoming weeks
activities. McTeacher Night will be held on Monday, February
4th at the West Chestnut McDonalds to help raise money for
our school. A WCCF fundraiser next week will also let our
students make a donation to a great cause and allow them to
participate in Hat Day on Wednesday, Feb. 6th. See your PTO
newsletter for more details!
