Last week, Willmore elected our student council officers. The purpose of the student council is to offer student leadership opportunities by allowing them to help govern the student body. Our student council helps share the ideas, interests, and concerns of students with teachers and the principal. They help organize spirit days and run fundraisers for our school. The elected officers are in charge of leading the meetings under the guidance of teachers Mrs. Shook and Ms. Pyle. In addition, they help lead the school in our weekly Community Gatherings with Dr. Jacobson.
Our students are becoming multilingual, multiliterate, multicultural citizens in our Spanish/English Dual Language Immersion Academy. We are proud to continue in our 2nd year of coding immersion 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!

We are excited to announce the opening of our new garden. Thanks to our continued, strong partnership with Home Depot. Home Depot brought employees and managers (local and regional) who came to dig and build planters. Students also were able to put soil and flowers in pots to take home. What a great experience for our students and families!
