Week of February 5-9

  • Congratulations to Nolan Church, 4th grade, who is the Williams Bay Spelling Bee Champion for 2018!  Congratualtions also to Mila Mielke, 2nd place, and Abby Fry 3rd place winners!  These students will be recognized at the February 12 Board Meeting.  Nolan and Mila will compete at the CESA 2 Regional Spelling Bee held at the Whitewater High School Auditorium on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 6 pm.

  • The WBES Student Council will be hosting a food drive for the Elkhorn Area Food Pantry during the month of February.  There are specific items in need so each week the student council is requesting the following items:

  • Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held on February 15 and 20 from 3:45-7:15.  This year spring conferences will be primarily be for specific students that teachers feel an additional conference is necessary.  I understand the confusion and frustration some parents have felt when they received alerts from Signup Genius for conferences they did not arrange with a teacher.  Our communication regarding spring conferences will be improved to prevent the confusion in the future.  Parents are welcome to contact teachers to arrange a conference if one is desired or if you have questions or concerns about a conference date/time that was requested.  4K/K and 2nd grade teachers are planning to include information meetings on Feb. 15 to help prepare students for the transition to the next grade.  

  • Emergency/Crisis Planning: The safety of our staff and students is our highest priority, so in order to better be able to deal with a possible armed intruder, we have partnered with the Williams Bay Police Department, the Williams Bay Fire Department and the Walworth County Sheriff’s Department to conduct a lockdown/intruder drill.  This drill will take place on Thursday, February 22nd, the day of our staff inservice day.  We routinely practice fire and tornado drills, but have not conducted a lockdown/intruder drill in recent years.  With the opening of the new elementary school, we feel this is an important area to practice to insure the safety of all students.  We will be planning a lockdown drill, with students present in the future.  Parents and students will be informed of the date of this drill prior to it occurring.

  • Williams Bay Elementary School will host 4K screening on Thursday, March 8 and Friday, March 9.  Children who will be four years old on or before September 1, 2018 are eligible for 4K/P.A.W.S. attendance.  All students will be required to provide a certified copy of their birth certificate.  Information will be sent home soon requesting name and address of children you believe will be 4K/P.A.W.S. age in the fall of 2018.

  • Lost and Found:  The table that contains lost and found items is overflowing.  Please check the table for items you child may be missing.  We will be donating items left on the table to Good Will in the near future.
