Happy Meals, Happy Faces at McTeacher's Night

McTeacher's Night

On Wednesday, November 15th Willmore families were treated to a welcome change at their neighborhood McDonald's.  In addition to being served by McDonald's employees, children were being catered to by their teachers!  Willmore staff members, including principal Dr. Jacobson, were on hand to greet diners, take orders, and serve all the customers.  McDonald's generously donates a portion of the profits to the Willmore PTA, and the night was a huge success.  Willmore earned over $870 from this fundraiser!  But raising the money was not the only benefit.  Both parents and children enjoyed the lively atmosphere, and the Willmore teachers loved seeing their students outside of the classroom.  Thank you to the entire community for coming together to support Willmore!

Code to the Future Showcase Makes Awesome the New Normal at Willmore

#tbirdscode

Computer science immersion is now a school-wide program offered at Willmore Elementary. With partners at Code to the Future, Willmore teachers guided students in their first EPIC Build project this trimester. Families and community members were invited to the EPIC Build Showcase for this first cycle to learn why students should learn to code and to take a closer look at the student projects from Transitional Kindergarten to Fifth Grade.

Google Expeditions Comes to Willmore

Google Expeditions AR

At Willmore, we are committed to bringing innovative learning experiences to our students. On October 26th, Google Expeditions Pioneer Program brought augmented reality lessons to our first through fifth graders.

Students are learning a new "language" at Willmore...CODING!

Willmore Code to the Future

Our students are becoming bilingual, biliterate, multicultural citizens in our Spanish/English Dual Language Immersion Academy. We are proud to announce that coding immersion has started at Willmore Elementary School as well this year. All of our Transitional Kindergarten through fifth grade teachers have been trained by the wonderful Dr. Martin, and are motivated to bring the excitement to all of our amazing students. All students are learning block based coding and are highly engaged in class. They are learning how to persevere and use logic in our 21st learning environments. We are committed to bringing the best possible education to our students at Willmore Elementary School!
