Hello Willowcreek Family.  This is Ms. Stewart and here is the Friday Focus message for this week.  Our mission is educating, empowering and inspiring excellence. There are 7 items of interest to follow.   If you miss any part of this message, visit the Willowcreek website or Facebook page where it will be printed in its entirety.  


  1. Our Students of the Week for this week are:  6th graders: Jessalyn Keller and Aiden Lineberry. 7th graders: Ilija Kirov, Michael Razo and Treston Dusendang.  8th graders: Alexis Hopper,Vanessa Roman and Jeremy Bell.  Principals’ Choice goes to: Aiden Witt, Rhegan Quinones, Amanda Purnick, Breah Bethel and Cantrell Brooks!  Well done all!

 

  1. There is no Late Start Wednesday this month.  Buses will be running on the regular schedule and students should come to school at the regular time on Wednesday.  Students may enter the building at 7:00.

 

  1. Tuesday, directly after school is our final 6th grade dance party of the year.  The theme is Mardi Gras and 6th graders may purchase a mask in advance for $5.  That mask will serve as their ticket to the dance party.  Tickets may also be purchased at the door.  The party ends at 4:30 and students will need to be picked up at door M in the parking lot between Aylesworth and Willowcreek.  Pizza and other concession items will be available for sale.  Students may not ride the activity bus home from the dance party.

 

  1. Thursday, February 8 from 3-7 is Willowcreek’s annual Blood Drive.  Held in our cafeteria, the American Red Cross partners with our students to collect blood to help save lives.  If you are available, please consider donating blood.  Reservations can be made through www.redcross.org

 

  1. We will be starting our school wide fundraiser on February 12.  This year we are teaming with the World Famous Albanese Candy Company to offer wonderful treats such as gummy bears and malted milk balls.  Be on the lookout for the flyer on how you can help support your child’s school.  Proceeds from this sale are used to fund the end of the year Mega Party, the 8th grade dinner dance, end of school awards, and lots of other student incentives.  

 

  1. The Harlem Wizards are coming back to town on February 22nd. Tickets go on sale on February 1st. Advanced Tickets are $8.00 for students and $12.00 for adults. Ticket Order Forms are available in the office.  Tickets will be sent home the week of the game. The price at the door is $15.00 each. You can also get your tickets online at www.harlemwizards.com/schedule-tickets. Deadline to purchase tickets will be February 20, 2018. See you there!!!!
