• Welcome to Willard Elementary School

    Our School Mission:
    Willard School educates and inspires our multilingual and monolingual students to think and act critically with empathy, kindness, and curiosity. Each member of our community - staff, students, families, and caregivers - actively contributes to a caring, safe environment through both their words and actions. Our entire school community will take the steps needed to address and end all forms of racism, bias, bigotry, and bullying at Willard School; it is our collective responsibility to ensure our students feel connected, ready to learn at higher levels, and able to grow to their fullest potential.

    Nuestra misión escolar:
    La Escuela Willard educa e inspira a nuestros estudiantes plurilingües y monolingües para que piensen y actúen críticamente con empatía, amabilidad y curiosidad. Cada miembro de nuestra comunidad - educadores, estudiantes, familias y cuidadores - contribuye activamente a un ambiente seguro y afectuoso a través de sus palabras y acciones. Toda nuestra comunidad escolar tomará los pasos necesarios para abordar y poner fin a todas las formas de racismo, prejuicio, intolerancia y acoso escolar en la Escuela Willard. Nuestros esfuerzos colectivos ayudarán a nuestros estudiantes a sentirse conectados, listos para aprender a niveles más altos y capaces de crecer a su potencial máximo.
