Dr. Kasey Northrop, Principal, at Margaret Willis Elementary School

Welcome back to the 2020-2021 school year! The last part of the school year was no doubt a challenging time for our students and families. We were all navigating our way through the pandemic.  I am so proud of how we have all pulled together during this crisis.  I want you to know that we are committed to providing a quality learning environment for your child during our remote instruction.  Together we will create the best possible learning experience for your child.  Perverservance during tough times is a skill we all will be working on! I want you to know that we are here to help you! 

Please connect with us through class dojo, Facebook and our Website.  You will receive a weekly phone call from me with details about the upcoming week.  It is very important that you do not opt out of these phone calls.  By opting out you will be also opting out of emergency phone calls.  

Parents and families can help us by creating a dedicated space for learning in your home, turning off televisions and video games and ensuring your child’s attendance daily.  If your child is sick or has an appointment notify your child’s teacher and complete all make-up work. Students will get breaks in their daily schedule.  Allow your child to exercise and move around during these breaks.  Your child’s social and emotional well being is of utmost importance to us.  Our guidance counselor and social worker are available for any concerns you may have about your child’s well being.  

Margaret Willis Elementary is an award winning PBIS school.  All students follow the PBIS Matrix for behavior and movement within the school.  The same expectations will continue during remote learning.  Students will receive dojo points for good behavior, participation and completing assignments.  These recognitions lead to incentives at the end of each 9 week period.  

We are looking forward to kicking off the 2020-21 school year with you!  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
