Letter From the Principal: 

Dear St. William families,

We are concluding another very busy week of learning and growing and St. William School. Congratulations to all of our students for completing the third quarter of school and doing so well on their STAR 360 tests. Overall our students have increased their growth scores and are achieving benchmarks.

This Monday March 29, 2021 your child’s report card will be visible on our Family Portal in FACTS. We will be sending home the results of the STAR 360 Mid- year report as a hard copy along with a parent letter to help you interpret your child’s strengths and goals for the fourth quarter. Please follow the link below for a 20 minute parent presentation regarding STAR testing  for further information. Star Session for Parents | Recording

Thank you to our PSA, Dad’s Club, and Parent Ambassadors who have helped to make our last Open House a success. Our enrollment is climbing each day and as of today our enrollment is at 152! We still have several families in the process of enrollment and I hope to announce our numbers for each grade level and classroom configurations after Easter Break. We have several present families who have recommended St.William to our new families and I am grateful for your continued support.

Please be aware that each week our Knightly News communications are posted on the website in case you have missed any important information regarding our school updates. I am also posting the May and June calendar on the website for our planning purposes but I do ask that you remember that our calendar is always tentative especially during the Pandemic.

Unfortunately, we are still experiencing COVID cases and we need to continue to follow all of our protocols to keep our families safe. Please remember to keep taking your child’s temperature before school, reminding them of proper handwashing, and proper masking. We will continue to practice the above protocols at school along with our desks being separated 6ft apart and keeping the students in their cohorts.

In His Love and Joy,

Betsy Gabrish

Principal

Book Madness

This year we are going to do a book madness at school.  We have chosen 16 picture books that will be competing against each other to see which book is the ultimate picture book.  Please read the books at home.  If you do not have the picture book you can listen to the book being read aloud on youtube.  The teachers may read the books to their class.  We will start voting for the first 8 books on Monday in school.  Attached below will be a list of the 16 books that are competing and the dates that we will be voting.  Happy Reading!
