Mrs. Solik’s 4th grade class recently became published authors!πŸ“– Each student wrote from the point of view of a turkey who was going to be eaten for Thanksgiving dinner. The kids had to persuade their reader to choose another dish/food of some kind to eat instead. The students got to be silly while also working on their persuasion skills through their writing. Each of Mrs. Solik's students received their own personal copy of the book that they all worked together to write. Mrs. Solik says she is so proud of them and all of their hard work! #OneWillow

Please help us welcome our next new teacher feature, Mrs. Lacey Bunch! About Mrs. Bunch: "Hello! I am Lacey Bunch and this is my first year as a Kindergarten teacher, but my second year teaching overall. Teaching has always been my calling and passion. Aside from teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I attended Willow PreK-12th grade and discovered my love for teaching because of the extraordinary teachers I had here. The love, support, and guidance I was given is what I want to give to my students as well. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing district." Welcome to Bear Nation Mrs. Bunch, we're so glad you're here!🐻 #OneWillow

Yesterday we celebrated MO Beef Day! All three schools were educated on beef by our Willow Springs FFA officers. The elementary students were given coloring pamphlets and got to meet Hazel the heifer! Middle school and high school students watched a presentation, received stress balls in the form of cows, and also got to see Hazel the heifer! Students were served spaghetti with fresh local beef for lunch yesterday and learned about the importance and benefits of fresh local meat and produce. The Mo Beef Kids program, which Willow Springs Schools participate in, connects schools and their food service professionals to local cattle farmers and ranchers to β€œbeef” up school lunches. #OneWillow
