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 4 items of interest to follow.   If you miss any part of this message, visit the Willowcreek website, Peachjar or Facebook page where it will be printed in its entirety.  

 

Congratulations to this week’s Students of the Week.  6th graders:   Brooke Maurer, Faith Melcic, Vanessa Lynch, Ethan English and Addison Richel.  7th graders: Megan Takacs, Lenia Pratt and Giszell Pfieffer.  8th graders:  Seamus Sullivan, Allivia Jordan and Chloe Gilsinger.  Principal Choice goes to: Gracie Stover and Ella Sowa.  Well done all!

On Thursday, Jan 30 the Portage Youth Council will sponsor a fun night of basketball right here at Willowcreek!  The Portage Police Department will battle the Portage Fire Department in a one game - winner take all contest.  There will also be a cash raffle for courtside tickets to a Bulls game!  Whoever wins - it will be a fun night for all!  The cost of the game is $5 and a concession stand will be open.  The game starts at 7:00 - doors open at 6:30.

Students will continue NWEA testing on Tuesday, January 28.  Please make sure your child is well rested and eats a good breakfast.  Above all, please be sure they are here on time every day but on Tuesday in particular.

 

Please be sure you are aware and that you remind your child that cell phones MUST be powered down during the school day.  Placing it on silent or vibrate mode is not sufficient.   If a student is using their phone during instruction time or passing periods, it will be placed in the office safe and a parent must pick it up. 

 

 

Thank you.

 Have a great weekend.

We are going to be going through the lost and found for items that can be cleaned and used for students who need a change of clothes during the day.  What cannot be used will be donated to charity.
