11/2/15 Last week we celebrated Red Ribbon Week here at Willow Grove Elementary School. Thanks to the efforts of our Student Assistance Counselor Mrs. Ellenbogen, as well as her enthusiastic team of students who served on the Red ribbon Week Committee, we had a terrific week of competitions, games, and important information to remind everyone to stay away from drugs. It was a critical message for our students, and I am so proud of all of our students who wrote poems, performed raps, composed songs, decorated doors, and in general shared the important message with their peers to stay drug-free! As part of the Red Ribbon week festivities, we also had a fun day on Friday celebrating Hallowe'en. Our students and staff were dressed for the occasion, and our school was filled with color and laughter. Thanks to all the parents who helped our teachers celebrate with our students! Just a reminder to parents - this week we will hold our Parent Conferences. Everyone should have received a time for your conference, and I hope that while you are in our school, you will also take the time to meet with your child's additional teachers for Physical Education, Music, Home and Careers (Grades 5 & 6 only), Art, and any additional services. Our teachers are always interested in keeping families updated on the progress of their students! Day conferences are on Tuesday, and evening Conferences are on Thursday, by appointment. Ms. rochford and I look forward to seeing you. Willow Grove PRIDE - we've got it!!
